THE LOGIC BEHIND THROWBACKS

Monday, January 6, 2014

I, like many others, like to take the occasional walk down memory lane. Click through photo albums, laugh at how dorky I looked, admire the flawless, unstained facial skin and wishing I could go back sometimes. This looking back at better moments is done so often by so many people that it even got its own definition [#throwback]. Social media channels are fluttered with throwbacks. At first these 'look-how-cute-I-was-back-then-photo's' were mostly posted on Thursdays [#Throwbackthursday], but now nobody really cares about Thursday's anymore. It's #Throwbackallthetimeanytime.

SO, I got to thinking. Why do we keep throwing back and not forward? I guess the most logical answer would be that it is impossible to look into the future. So there is argument number one. Argument number two is illustrated below and made me never want to throw anything forward ever again! Ever! I will just stick to reliving my youth and ignore the fact that I will eventually grow older (and will look like my face is made out of pudding).

Still feel the need to #throwitforward? Try throwing forward your family members or friends. I promise you, you will get a good laugh out of it!

 Throw it back!
Throw it forward!
