14th Birthday. Space Shuttle Exploded. The jokes came out the very next morning.

It happened on my birthday. January 28th. I was 14 years old. We had a day off of school.

Sat in my basement, watching it live because I was into space stuff. We had a day off of school.

*boom*

I was riveted to the whole thing; I don’t remember much else about my 14th birthday.

The jokes came out the very next morning. I remember thinking to myself, “HOW did the jokes start _so quickly_?” – and this was pre-Internet.

Still amazes me.
