home, sick

spent the past 2 days at home, nursing some mild affliction of unknown origin. along w/ sore throat and achey limbs, i found myself trapped in some strange area of nostalgia for days past, pining/aching for long ago corridors of college. i know this only underscores my age and the distance between then and now but i felt it all the same. not certain what brought it on but it led me to re-watch noah baumbach's 'kicking and screaming' which encapsulates that period perfectly. should you not have seen it, the below is a bad trailer for a great film.

Okay, bp, been back to campus yet?

bp said...

no, not yet elizabeth. I was back near the alma mater campus a couple yrs ago and felt completely alienated and out-of-place by the current student population. which i forgot in all my rosy nostalgia, until you reminded me. what i recall as a foggy dream of early adulthood and seemingly indeliable relationships was likely in fact a lot of drunk post-adolescents vomiting in the bushes.

That's funny! Maybe you don't need to go back! Been there, done that syndrome.
