A while ago, my mother got a recordable DVD player. We had asked her to transfer some of our old VHS videos onto DVDs. One particular tape I had was full of videos that I shot with my cousin. We were teenagers and it was fun to make up things to film. We thought we were super funny and creative.
A couple of nights ago, M and I were sitting on the couch and I decided to pull out the DVD. I had remembered laughing hysterically at some of our fake commercials and our three-part series about a banana named Mr. Bananahead. As the DVD was playing, M could not stop laughing. She wasn't laughing at the content of the videos, she was laughing at me. She kept saying things like "well, it's a good thing we didn't meet when we were teenagers" and "did your friends really think you were cool?" Long story short, I ended up fast-forwarding through most of it and vowed that next time I decide to watch old videos, I will either view it by myself or with my cousin. There was only one word to describe it: AWKWARD.
