ShareCup is all about sharing thee most random things that burrow into our brains and won’t leave us until they have been shared with enough people that they begin sharing it with others until a trend has been set, or gossip has gone around long enough to have gotten back to you. Everyone pretends to get mad when someone tells them a story, or regurgitates a fact to them that they are pretty sure they themselves started sharing among the friend-circle, but deep down there is a sense of accomplishment and importance in everyone when this happens.
For me, this happened most recently when I paid a visit to my friend’s hometown the other weekend — OrangeChair’s town ironically enough — and we went to the bars, because we like to drink and get rowdy, when I was asked to pick some music out on the good ol’ jukebox. Naturally, I went straight for the 4 Non Blondes, and, naturally, the entire bar, I kid you not nor am I over exaggerating, the entire bar, broke into chorus and belted this beaut of a song out as if they had just finished memorizing all of the lyrics seconds before they entered the bar. I guarantee you 80% of those people (some young, some middle aged, none too young because this is a bar we’re talking about you nerds, but some young enough that they were new to the legal drinking scene) hadn’t heard this song for years! And yet, we all shared that moment together as if the 90’s had never skipped a beat. Nostalgia at it’s finest hour 😀
