Daily Prompt: Always Something There to Remind Me

From this prompt.

This is going to sound ridiculous (because it totally is) but the song that’s always taking me back to the past–and I mean way, way back into the past–is A Whole New World from Disney’s Aladdin. See, my mom put together this little video of me–well, pictures of me–from birth to early childhood with that song in the background. Then she put it on a VHS tape and whenever she plays it (yes, we still have a VHS player in our house), I keep seeing these things about my life that I could never remember shit about. Mostly because I don’t think my brain had registered those things were happening, seeing that they were 15 to 17 years ago. Still, it’s kind of creepy to see that those things actually happened, that I was walking in that park, wearing that dress, that I could never remember being in or wearing. 

Now, everytime I hear that song, the entire VHS tape starts playing in my head like an unnecessary flashback of my life as if I were dying.
