In high school, a friend of my mother's gave me a necklace she used to wear in high school. It was a simple silver chain with a blue heart pendant. The next year, Titanic flooded theaters. As I'm not a fan of Leonardo DiCaprio, James Cameron or romances, I've managed to avoid seeing this cultural behemoth. I stopped wearing the necklace when a classmate felt inspired to share with me, "I can't believe the boat sank! I knew it happened in, like, history and stuff, but you'd think they'd want to give the movie a happy ending."
Yet, I'd still wear Hammer pants.
