Summer of 1990

Unscramble an egg? It's an impossible order, it can't be done, except by magic, and there in no real magic in the world, none with the power to turn back the clock, back to that Friday evening in August, the day that I received my new eyeglasses with the blue frames, the day you glanced at the titles of the videos I was about to check-out and said "hmmm", a very friendly "hmmm". I noticed you were no longer wearing a ring, and you finally, after a good number of days, smiled at me and gave me a friendly comment. "At 10:01PM!" you said as I was on my way out, as you handed me the computerized receipt with the date stamp and your name at the very top.
