Today is "Flashback Friday". A flashback is a memory of the past. For example, if you go to the store to buy a watermelon, and suddenly you remember the time when you were a child and you dropped a huge watermelon on the carpet and then your mother yelled at you and grounded you for a week, you had a "flashback".
The other day, as I was looking at some Japanese schoolchildren in their uniforms, I had a flashback of when I was a boy scout. I really enjoyed wearing a uniform. Perhaps it was because American schoolchildren don't wear uniforms, and so this was my only chance. I think I looked quite sharp! As a boy scout, I had to memorize an oath which I amazingly still remember to this day.
By the way, check out the ancient TV in the background. Ha!
Have a fabulous day!
