We were watching I Love the 2000s and they were talking about Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skulls, and Garrett had never even heard of it. I was surprised that everyone talking about it on the show liked it, because I remember liking it while everyone haaaaated it.

Cate Blanchett's hair in it stuck "Breakout" by Swing Out Sister in my head so hard.
Anyway I was thinking it was nice to see Karen Allen because I'd really only ever seen her in Raiders of the Lost Ark and Starman, so I looked her up and it turns out she played Christa McAuliffe in a TV movie about the Challenger. We're watching that now.
I was at the same place when I learned about the Challenger disaster as my mom was when she learned about JFK's assassination; we went to the same middle school.
The morning of the second shuttle disaster was when I was on my way with my ex and his mom's ashes to Oklahoma. We buried her urn in a graveyard near the salt flats outside Cherokee. I was so exhausted that I was hallucinating, but I got an early start on the final day of the trip so I could stop by my parents' house. I hadn't seen them in a couple of years, and have no idea why they couldn't turn off Dr. Phil and visit with us.

That ended up being the last time I ever saw my mom.
