Light the corners of my mind
Misty water-coloured memories
Of the way we were
In the midst of my monthly cleaning, organizing and de-cluttering frenzy, I came upon a box. Inside this box contained old photo albums and a smaller box containing the "scary" photos. I'm talking about the kind of photos where you get to see your old hairstyles and your 80s clothes and wonder what you were thinking!
If we had the chance to do it all again
Tell me, would we? Could we?
This brings me to my other discovery - the photos of the ex-boyfriends. After discussing this matter with friends, I have decided that it is time to say good-bye to the bizarre photos of passed out ex's and 'mooning' strangers. I do, however, have a problem with one particular ex who I'll nickname BM (BM standing for Big Mistake, not bowel movement - although that would be fitting as he really was a turd and I will forever be thankful that I chose to say buh-bye when I did)
You see, BM was a part of my life (therefore in a lot of my photos) for about 4 years and to destroy 4 years worth of memories seems a bit sad really. I could cut him out of the photos but it was pointed out to me that anytime I saw the photo, I would remember who else used to be in that picture. And ridding myself of all memories including the dreadful BM would mean destroying videos of my trip to Ireland... not that I ever watch the videos because it is tainted by his evil presence.
Anyone care to comment about what they have done with their photos with ex's? Anyone care to have a bonfire?
Apologies to Barbra but I just couldn't publish this post with American spelling. I'm sure she understands...
