Guess what I was doing 33 years ago today?
Well, actually I don’t know. But I know what my mother was doing. She was posting a letter.
I know this because the letter was recently unearthed by some relatives, and Mom just sent it to me. It’s an Easter card to my Grandpa Sid.
And here’s the enclosed photo of yours truly.
Sometime after my garbage collector phase and my fireman phase, my childhood ambition was to be a nuclear physicist. That did not come to pass. However, I did make a kick-ass science fair display, with a little help from my parents. Won me a blue ribbon!
I was ten years old. That was a third of a century ago.
PS: I said I didn’t know what I was doing on April 6 of 1977, but I just checked my journal and found this entry:
