The 80s. Well, of course I’m going to say the 80s. My teenage years were encapsulated entirely within the 80s.
-No “helicopter” or “snowplow” parenting — I was permitted to crash headlong into unyielding reality. Required to, actually.
-No Internet. I had to make friends/peace in meatspace, with people who offered friction. No virtual social bubbles.
-I was really, really good at Joust. And Galaga. And Q*Bert.
-I saw the Butthole Surfers. Live. In Detroit. They were way more stoned than I was. 🤪
