Back in time

Every so often, I find myself being someone very, very much younger for a second or two.

Yesterday morning, I was returning the rental car to the agency and had the radio on. And they played an ad for the current storyline on General Hospital - which was Luke and Laura getting back together again.

I haven't watched soaps in over 20 years, although I'll occasionally peek at the soap column in the TV Guide and wonder who those people are, but when I was in college - well. In the early-mid 80s, everything stopped at 3PM. EVERYTHING. And at that moment, my heart skipped a beat and I was as excited, I think, as I would have been back then. For that second, I was 20 years old again. (Note - my birthday is Sunday. I'll be 43.) And, yes, I know all about the origins of that romance, but I started watching after that, so all I saw was the romance and the tears and the wedding and the...well. :)

Last night, Barry Manilow was on Stephen Colbert. And I instantly turned into a 14 year old New Jersey girl. Barry Manilow *always* does that to me.
