Time can get away from you, can't it? And I'm not just talking about an hour here or there...
Having a pint or glass of wine with friends.
I'm talking about years and decades.
The other night Kat and I went out for a little date night.
There was music playing through the sound system and Nirvana, "Smells Like Teen Spirit" came on.
We started talking about Nirvana, Kurt Cobain and 90's music.
Then the song American Woman came on.
The original The Guess Who version.
And I started calculating years and realized something that blew my mind.
"Smells like Teen Spirit" came out in 1991 - which feels like last week to me.
American Woman came out in 1970.
What that means is....
It's been 23 years since "Smells Like Teen Spirit".
But from when "Smells Like Teen Spirit" was release and "American Woman" was released it was only 21 years.
That melts my mind.
I can't wrap my brain around that.
If you would have told me while I was listening to Nirvana in 1991 to listen to American Woman. I would have said, "I'm not that in to classic rock".
But it had only been 21 years!!!
Now it's been 23 years since Nirvana released "Smells Like Teen Spirit", and like I said, it feels like it was just last week.
Now I understand that it could be my age... and that American Woman came out before I was born and that could play in to it...
But that's what I mean...
It's not logical.
Time isn't logical.
Time isn't a set dimension.
It's an emotion.
If you talked to someone in Physics I'm sure they would tell you that I was wrong...
But what matters is the feeling...
Not the logic.
If I try too hard to understand it, it just hurts my brain.
Time is Trippy!!!
And because you know this and feel it too...
Stop wasting your precious time.
You're going to wake up 20 years from now, hear "Royals" by Lorde and wonder where the years went.
