  1. This is the day that I was born. My mother’s water broke right after she had been cleaning her hardwood floors. My dad took her and my brother in the car through McDonald’s drive-thru before going to the hospital. My dad also had a broken leg in a cast so it was an awkward ride. When they got to the hospital, the staff brought out a wheelchair for him instead of her. They assured my mom “It’ll be awhile.” I was born 20 minutes later.

    The text of this photo appears to be German and I got to go to Munich after finishing grad school. This day was when East and West Germany ratified reunification.

    According to the internet, this is also the day that the Grateful Dead was playing at Madison Square Garden.


Tell us a story.
