    How you had to walk 10 miles uphill through the snow to school every day.
    How you almost died as a young child from the common cold.
    How you proposed to the love of your life with the help of your barbershop quartet.
    How you had to wake up before dawn every day to churn milk into cheese.
    How much your life changed when you saw your very first sunrise after color was invented.
    How you attempted to raise a baby fawn but your father shot it in front of you to teach you about adulthood.
