Biggest regret of my life is that I never recorded any interviews with a single one of my Grandparents before they died.
I miss all of my Grandparents for sure, but I especially miss my Grandpa as he seemed to have been the only person on Earth that shared my sense of humor. For example —
Grandpa is at the store pulling up an app on his iPhone when the clerk notices.
Clerk: Hey, that’s cool! We don’t usually see people your age using an iPhone.
Grandpa: That’s because the people my age are already dead!
I’m at least thankful to have this collection of memories people shared to listen to as much as I want to. I’ve also come to accept that I am now the only person left in the family that finds joy in awkward situations.
While talking politics with any given person, I will explicitly state that I desire a society built completely on voluntary interactions and transactions among free people, void of State coercion and I’ll still get accused of being selfish. Mind = blown.
