  1. “OMG that was the just the worst!
    That’s an hour of my life I’ll never get back.”
    Who was the Master of the Obvious that said it first?
    We never get our hours back.
    Time moves only forward for mortals.
    “Take a picture. It lasts longer.”
    The sassy comeback of my youth
    has come into its own
    and created the selfie generation.
    But there is no camera that could record
    the way I feel when I’m with you.
