Cleaning The Past

Don’t let it be forgot
That once there was a spot
For one brief, shining moment that
was known as Camelot.

I have a nice desk in my study… each time that I’ve moved, I went about moving it the lazy way. I’d seal up the drawers quite securely, and then we’d carry the heavy thing out. This time I actually decided to clean out all of the contents from each drawer. There were things in there I haven’t seen in over ten years.

I found some old pictures of my old dog, Aspen. She was my birthday present for my 11th birthday. We found her at the Cedar Park Humane Society… she was six weeks old when she came home with me. I kept the pictures of course.

Anyway, I also found an old rose that I received from someone I loved dearly many years ago… she gave it to me on the last day I saw her. She told me that I would always be in her heart, but she didn’t love me (story of my life.) Needless to say, I threw it away tonight.

I also found the knife that impaled me when I was 16 years old. I had totally forgotten that I even kept that thing. Time may heal some things, but scars do remain… this scar is still clearly visible right under my rib cage. Not sure why, but I went ahead and kept the knife tonight.

The whole time I’m cleaning out the desk, my ferrets are right there watching me with curiosity... I can’t help but wonder what I’m going to do with them. It breaks my heart to have to give them up. I’m so lost on what to do.

Maybe - if you kept the clean so they don't get too aromatic - you could sneak them in and no one would be the wiser.

They have all had their scent glands removed, yet they still stink nonetheless.

Btw: Also ran into some Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle and Transformer toys in the inner bowels of the desk drawers!
