This weeks flashback is a little bit different. I'm not going to post a picture (I'm going to post two) and follow it up with a story that I've glued together with font, using bits and pieces of antiqued memories. I'd just like to take a break from the usual today.
When I was going through my homemade photo box (our very first diaper wipe box) earlier, (someday I'll have something a little more sufficient) I came across two very different photographs. An old one of Christopher, standing in a hallway dressed up in a beautiful pinstriped suit (oh how I love pinstripes *drools*). He wanted me to make it clear to everyone (seriously, he specified that I write this), that he was not going to a school dance that night. He wasn't going anywhere. He just dressed like that, all the time, for no reason at all. ...So anyways, I picked up a picture of him in his pinstriped suit, set it down on the dryer (I was sorting through the box in the laundry room, which is still clean, by the way), and then the picture that I pulled out immediately after his I'm-not-going-anywhere-I'm-just-really-weird picture, was a shot of me at the beach with my friend Jenny, my hair blowing in the wind, a huge smile on my face.
I set that picture down on the dryer as well.
As I continued flipping through prints, I thought I saw something out of the corner of my eye (I thought it was a spider, ok, I'm paranoid), and after I caught my breath again (it was lint), my eyes scanned very quickly over the photos sitting side by side on the dryer top, before settling their gaze back inside the baby wipes box.
My eyes went back.
It was day and night. Night and day. My heart skipped a beat, and I let out a little "aww", even though nobody was in the room with me to hear it. That's perfect. The perfect flashback.
