This is a photo of a post box that I (and a somebody else) made in college as a present. It is ridiculous – but at the time seemed to make the most sense in the world. I am pretty sure that it was never used – by the packaging still being inside – and the fact that it ended up back in my hands.
I am not very good at throwing things away – but lately I have tried to get better at it – from what I hear it feels kind of good to lighten up the load a bit. It pretty much makes my stomach do flips thinking about throwing stuff away.
The tie-in here (the “funny”) is that I think it is hilarious that my stomach would even think of doing any sort of gymnastics over a my wanting to get rid of this flamingo post box . . . it really is pretty silly. As I go to throw something away, the brain process goes something like this “Here we go! Throwing stuff away.” – pause for clammy hands and pit in the gut to form – “Mmmmmmm – maybe I should just hold onto this for a tiny time longer . . . who knows when I’ll need this particular thing-a-whats-a-ma-doozle-a-dazzle?!” – and then I put it back away until the battle is fought again (internally that is).
Oh – by the way – did you happen to notice that (Irving Brown) Socks looks like he in posing for either an Abercrombie or a Drakkar Noir ad??
Good Flamingo post box!
