-The 90s were characterized by a merciless mercy and a silent speech.
Dad I don’t understand.
-The 90s were the time I first took the measure of my right hand, by clasping it in my left.
Dad, I mean the 90s. I cannot follow you.
-The 90s were a time when we followed ourselves into rooms within ourselves and lost ourselves. The 90s were a time when we lost time. The 90s were a time when we discovered a time full of things we lost but had forgotten we lost them. Because we thought we had them.
Dad, the 90s, when “Friends” was on.
-Indeed. The closest people to us were strangers, and our best friends turned out to be people we had never met. Sometimes we went into a dark room and turned on a light and for an instant had a glimpse of our own face. It wasn’t in a mirror, it was a certain look on the face of people we were afraid to admit we loved. In the 90s.
