Every once in a great while something hits me and brings back a memory as vivid as the day it happened. For example...
Opening my rarely opened tool box full of colored pencils, art supplies and what have you. Totally reminds me of my Pops walking me across the black top to my first day of first grade at Our Lady of Mercy...My pencil box with all my school supplies...Completely brings me to that flashback.
A few years back Megan and I got Mojito's at Gulf Coast Grill...As soon as I got my nose close to the glass the smell of the mint hit me. We always had this random patch of mint at the end of our backyard. I don't know if it had been planted there and one time and always showed back up...or what the deal was. It totally took me back to running around like a banshee in the backyard.
Sooo...I told myself I wasn't going to post images from the web...just photos I took or peoples I knew took...buuut this one is just too good.
Joe sent me this yesterday. Not even joking this image brought back sooo many memories! The sound of the rotating blade on Roton as you pushed it forward, The weird smell of Mer-Man, The water squirting capabilities of Kobra Khan, The Battle Armor chests of Heman and Skeletor, Man-E-Faces cycling faces, Ram-Man's spring loaded goodness, the stupid clip-on wings for Stratos, How lame Buzz-off was, Prince Adam's flocked pink pants, and how baddass Castle Grayskull was! Holy crap!
