New photography prompt from LAST FRIDAY, I KNOW I TAKE FOREVER ON THINGS SOMETIMES SORRY:
Show us something that is lost, but not forgotten.
Whelp, I guess I will show you something “lost.” I have the Timehop app on my phone, which is the app that shows you your Facebook activity from one year, two years and so on ago. This picture from exactly three years ago to the date of this writing came up:
Who is that guy? First off, it’s weird to think that such a “moment” was occurring in my life at some point. It seems “that” guy is forgotten, much less the individual standing next to him, Samantha, my first and to date, only girlfriend. It seems oddly “magically represented” in this photo. It seems fabricated. Like, hey, you two, pose for this hokey Hallmark Christmas card, please and thanks.
It’s also weird to think this was three years ago already. What have I done since then? What has she done? I think about that sometimes. I sometimes wonder if she thinks about me or what’s become of me. I wonder if she ever happens across a photo of ours and gets that feeling in her stomach like, “Hmph, interesting.” It’s not a pining, don’t get me wrong. I’ve long since exercised the demons of longing and despair from my system.
At the minimum, I still do have those glasses and that jacket and those gloves and those pants. And that caffeine addiction. Not all is lost.
Edit: I also don’t think it’s a coincidence that this post is my 666th post. I kid, I kid…
