- A (Real) Blast From The Past – This is an Adjectival, Metaphorical, Idiomatic and Prepositional Phrasal-Noun which is used to describe something which was a part of, or represents a memory (fond or otherwise) from the past. This phrase is used when the thing which is it describing has not been thought about for a very long time, has probably been forgotten, and the arrival of which came as a big surprise.
“Seeing my some of my old friends from Grateful Dead Tour was a real blast from the past. I completely forgot about the week that we travelled together through the redwood forests of Northern California… (but understandably-so).” 😉
