Most people idealize their youth because it’s fun to be young. And most bore those who come after with their tales. Glory Days.

It’s why I don’t tell war stories. First, I wasn’t special. Second, few really want to hear. Third, those who do, don’t want to hear the truth.

Even so, I think you would have liked the party. :)
