I Save What’s Important

Not everything. I’m not a hoarder, but just like to save a few things from the past to remember what lovely times I’ve had. Like ticket stubs for fun shows, or matches from favorite bars, or the to-go lids of memorable lattes, or the plastic wrappings of DVDs I bought while waiting in the line at Duane Reade pharmacy that one time. Nothing too crazy. I put these in the memory box. It’s nice to have a memory box. It’s fun to pull things out once in a while, and I say, Yeah, I remember that time we did that thing. It was fun.
