Beware of overwriting. Detail is important, but use it sparingly and with intention.
"I remember everything as if it were yesterday. We were sipping Grandma's cinnamon-laced coffee on the veranda when, suddenly, everyone's attention was on me! My unusual behavior was exposed, and I felt like a lab rat ready to be dissected!"
The phrase "I remember everything as if it were yesterday" is a bit cliched, perhaps you can find another way to express this.
