I look back at Rio 2016 like most people look back at a lost love. Someday when I’m 90 my great grandkids will be like “Oh my gosh you’ve lived such a long life.. you must’ve seen some really bad stuff in your day.” And I’m gonna be like “Actually yes I have one time the USWNT didn’t place in the Olympics and I almost didn’t make it through the summer. Other than that it’s been pretty smooth.”
One of my favorite phrases in a fandom is: “how have I never seen this before?!” because it is like you are openly admitting you are so obsessed with that fandom that you actually think you’ve seen EVERY picture/quote/life story about said fandom. You are basically saying, I’m so surprised someone was able to find something from the entire internet that I could not find even with intensity of obsession that I have. Gotta love those fandoms.
