“If you had gone back in time and told me [whatever] would happen, my brain would melt.” Normally, when people say this, it’s about something big. A black president. Phones you can play music and watch people fuck on. Big events/changes.
But everyone has some “if you’d told me…” event that’s really small (and probably only significant to them) in the grand scheme of things. Yet, it has just as much (if not more) impact for them as something huge.
I was watching The Dark Knight the other night, and realized: If you had told me in January 2008 that Barack Obama would actually become president, I’d raise an eyebrow. If you had said in the very next sentence that The Dark Knight would become one of my favorite movies ever, I’d pass out and leave 4 different colors of shit in my pants. No lie; my boxers would look like a Kwanzaa celebration. That was just impossible. Begins was OK, but no one could really save that series after Batman and Robin. But it happened somehow.
I was just wondering if somebody else had something like that.
