Things we used to do: Flash mobs

Boston Birthday Flash Mob

In the before times, it was a thing: People would just gather in some crowded place and begin to dance, or sing or play instruments. Remember crowded spaces? Here are some videos of Boston flash mobs back in the day:

Someday I hope I'll realize that I haven't heard the phrases "maintain social distancing" and "remain vigilant" for quite a while.

Good luck, we've been hearing "Remain Vigilant" since 9/11. *Robotic MBTA Voice* "Remember... if you See something, say something!"

The first flash mobs were in the golden age of the dance club. Only people talked and interacted with each other in person more instead of through a device. And danced because it was fun and get dressed upo danceable music. Queue Zapp More Bounce to the Ounce. D-Train You're the One for Me. If you have a pulse no matter what you're age, skin color, or identity. You just can't sit still to such beats!!

I won't feel we're back to normal until we can have a march of plague-infested rotting zombies through downtown Boston again.
