January 30, 2017 - Dig through your couch cushions, your purse, on the floor of your car and look at the year printed on the first coin you find. What were you doing that year?
In 1992, I was recently divorced. Cathy, Sean, Leslie and I lived in a very nice little house just a block from a gas station/convenience store, two blocks from our older sister, and a mile from our mother. Sean and Leslie were still in elementary school, I worked for Herr Doktor as his transcriptionist/insurance clerk, and Cathy worked nights in the ER at the main hospital, as a radiologic technologist (she took xrays).
The songs that I loved that year were: Smells like Teen Spirit by Nirvana, Under the Bridge by The Chili Peppers, Jump Around by House of Pain, and Bohemian Rhapsody by Queen.
The movies I loved that year were: Wayne's World, Howard's End, Twin Peaks-Fire Walk With Me, Glengary Glen Ross, Reservoir Dogs, and Buffy the Vampire Slayer.
The big concerts Cathy and I attended were: Ozzy (Zakk Wylde on lead guitar) with Alice in Chains at Lampe, and Aerosmith with Collective Soul at Kansas City.
