Yesterday, I received a long, thoughtful letter from a person I haven't seen or spoken to in a very long time. That letter was wrapped around a picture of me holding a... wait for it... crossbow arrow... and sitting next to a life-size cutout of Gollum from Lord of the Rings. On the back of the photo, she had written, "I'll have you know that this is one of about 15 pictures that has traveled to England, Guatamala, and Ecuador with me. Flattering, I know."
A few thoughts came to mind:
#1 - Despite being wrapped in a hot pink Snuggie and slathered with Vicks VapoRub, I am, in fact, cooler than I used to be.
#2 - I had no memory of this photo ever being taken. I wish I could blame alcohol, but I was relatively booze-free in college, so that clearly wasn't a factor. You would think that posing with cardboard fantasy monsters in a dorm room would remain emblazoned in your mind for at least a decade or so...
#3 - What did we do with the crossbow arrows after this picture was taken?
#4 - Never leave the house without make-up. Ever.
I figure it's time to start recording some of my day-to-day shenanigans, because I don't want to find pictures of a Snuggied, VapoRubbed Rachel years from now and not be able to explain myself...
