Definitely 8

A friend with international football to watch any time he liked thanks to the VCR machine in his front room. A blue estate car. Starting a new school. These memories I know happened when I was 8. Largely I know this because I can pin them to larger events which place my memories at a specific point in time. An international football tournament in France, all dark nights and deeply sweated shirts. An athlete, one of ours, but not really one of ours, falling and weeping trackside in the magical land. A man with a jet pack from the same two week period.

So I definitely remember being 8.

Will you?

What will you tell me of this time in years to come?
