What were you doing 10 years ago?

1997, eh? Okay. I think that is the year we lived in Charlotte, NC. I was working at The Peaceful Dragon (oh, it's still there!) when they used to have a vegetarian cafe/tea shop there (it looks like they no longer do). I cooked and baked. Doug and I took all the classes they offered. It was great.

What were you doing 1 year ago?

It's sort of a blur. Fiona was 4 and Sophia was 20 months. We took a couple of fun car trips over the summer. It was a rainy summer.

The memories. The nightmares. All back in one blinding flash as I read the words:

"that black polyester concert band dress"

Oh how I had blocked THE dress out of mind. That dress that could not wrinkle, be cut, burned, or in any way destroyed. It lived ON and ON to torment its wearer until the end of year when one could thrust it back in the depths of the back band hall closet.

I bet they're still in there too. Mocking us. Knowing that after the bombs drop only them and the cockroaches will survive.

I'm sorry to bring back such a horrible memory! *shudder*

The feel of it on your skin. My God. I have to have a hot shower now.

Even the cockroaches screamed.
