Was that the computer we played that Lotus racing game on? I still remember the soundtrack from that game!!!

That was the summer of 1997. I was 14, you were 13. I remember being astonished that your class was also reading To Kill a Mockingbird. I remember we rented ID4 with Will Smith on VHS, ended up watching the Rockets-Sonics NBA playoff game, and you introduced me to cricket - I bowled something called a "yorker" which I think you managed to dig out .
I drop knowledge so heavy it leaves the world unbalanced, exterminating the spiritual force of all that challenge, I'm the lyrical apocalypse that crumbles the granite, replacing you as the dominant species on the planet.
