(Interlude. Your turn: assumptions about me!)

For those of you new to Don’t Let The Days Go By, this is a continuing story set in 1997 about a university student making his way in life. If you came here looking to read some nostalgic fiction, I’m taking a break for at least a month, but you can start here with episode 1 (set in 1993) and then keep reading up until you finish episode 134. Unless you have no life and you are a very fast reader, I’ll probably be writing new episodes again by the time you finish. If you don’t have time for all of that, I’ll be doing a Season 3 recap soon.

I decided to do something fun this week. I’ve seen other bloggers and social media personalities do this. Usually I give snarky replies when others do this, so I guess I deserve it if you guys give snarky replies, but I would like to see some real replies as well.

Here is how this works: You share your assumptions about me. Tell me in the comments some things you’ve always assumed about me, and then in a later post I will share your assumptions and reveal whether or not they are true. That’s it. I’m curious what you think about me.

But… there’s a twist. I’m writing this post in character. Today is June 15, 1997, and I just woke up at my parents’ house in Plumdale after finishing my third year at the University of Jeromeville. So you are sharing your assumptions about Greg, the character from Don’t Let The Days Go By, and I will answer them from June 1997. If you say for your assumption, for example, “You like blogging,” I will reply, “What’s blogging?” since blogging wasn’t a thing in 1997. I first heard that term in 2000 when Brody Parker had a new girlfriend (whom he married a few years later, and divorced several years after that) and she showed me her blog.

Anyway, let me know your assumptions, and I will answer next week. Also, while you’re waiting for new DLTDGB episodes, follow my other projects, Greg Out Of Character and Song of the Day, by DJ GJ-64. And if you have assumptions about adult Greg, the writer of this blog, as his life is in 2022, I’ll be doing an assumptions post on the Greg Out Of Character blog soon.

Also, just for fun, here’s a picture of me all dressed up. This was June 6, 1997, on the way to my chorus performance.

  1. Hi Greg, I think we met briefly on my friend’s blog… something about droughts in our areas? Anyway, this looks like such a fun idea; I’ve seen some of these posts too. Perhaps I’ll try it one day.

    Sorry, I digress. You asked for assumptions? Um, let’s see, I have four that just came to mind:

    You play the violin or some other instrument in an orchestra.
    You like fishing.
    You prefer bowties to actual ties.
    You sing second bass in the college choir.

    1. Yes, I remember you… thanks for commenting! I’ll answer these in my next post. In the meantime, I’m taking a break from writing, but you can always read any or all of my previous 134 episodes. Or, if that’s too much, I’ll be recapping year 3 soon too. Have a great weekend!
