Happy New Year all!
I was watching Sailormoon on Youtube. The ending was sad. After that, I began to do some reading on Wikipedia about Sailormoon. When I saw the first release date of Sailormoon (it was 1992 and it is 2016 now), I suddenly started to moan that time passed so quickly. I stopped reading the Wikipedia page and visited Google for some quotes about time, and then I came across this quote of Perry Como,
Just the other day, it seems, the kids were running through the house, slamming doors, breaking glass, making noise. Time goes by so quickly. Sometimes everything seems so fleeting.
At first, I was not very sure about the meaning of Just the other day in the quote, so I looked it up in Cambridge dictionary, and it told me that the other day means a few days ago.
When I was finding some way to help me remember this quote, I came up with this question
Will it ruin the original meaning of the quote if I replace "the other day" with "a few days ago"?
