This could only happen on social media. You are reading about many different topics on Facebook, when all of a sudden you see your name. A friend from 30-plus years ago is recalling a story that involves you. In this case, I remember the story well.
I read the entire script and sat back and smiled. I was 34 at the time, now I’m almost 68 years old. I haven’t seen or spoken to the author, Susan March, for 25-plus years. She got married and moved away. Through Facebook, we reconnected online. We now belong to the same Facebook group page called CE Legends: The Unauthorized History.
Susan, “Thank you for that crazy, special story. That incident was unbelievable. Eliot says he remembers one of the train workers carrying the decapitated head in a plastic shopping bag. We could see the outline of the head in the bag from the window of the train. We were all aghast.”
If DigiDame readers are not on social media, it’s difficult to describe how connected you are to the people you follow, and to those who follow you. Its a different kind of family.
I’m glad I didn’t miss out on Susan telling this story. It’s comforting to know that the people I grew up with, still remember shared experiences so many years later.
