Share A Memory With the World
Have you ever been to a concert, or movie, or show, or any other event, and had something happen there that led you to save the ticket stub, as a way to call back the memory of what happened? Maybe it was the movie you saw on your first date, or the last gig your favorite band played before they split up, or something else; but you knew that stub was a kind of totem, and, for whatever reason, you couldn’t bring yourself to cast it away.
Here’s a few particularly good ones:
- “Forty-Dollar Friendship” is a marvelous story of a young man, a young woman, and the two yuppie food coupons that came between them;
- “And Now For Something Completely Different” recounts how a one-day London Underground pass created a connection between a college student and a legendary comedian;
- and “Dearer Than the House” tells of a woman’s night out with a too-rich-for-his-own-good friend.
