from Everything I Know About Love, Thirty (Dolly Alderton)

It was my friend Pandora who first recognized that my useless superpower is a propensity for needless nostalgia.  I have an unerring ability to metabolize, ritualize and memorialize the passing of time at breakneck speed so everything becomes a grand moment in history within a year of it happening.

'You can refer to a house party you went to last month with the same wistfulness and romance as if it were the Summer of Sixty-Nine,' she commented.  I didn't deny it.
