I was having coffee with Avant Garde Artist Friend on Sunday and talking about dating, when I disclosed the number of emails in my inbox from old boyfriends and other confusions from recent history.
“I don’t know what’s going on. It’s like I’m recycling,” I said.
“That’s so green of you.”
I hadn’t thought of it that way, but, really, it makes sense. Why waste valuable time spent on past relationships that take days, months, years to decompose?! Why not recycle old boyfriends and keep this world free of toxic relationship waste…(is this thing on?)?!
Because they didn’t go anywhere to begin with?
Well, whose to say I’m not going to end up buying the same outfit with a different brand?
It gets to a point where the confusion overwhelms rational thought. However, truth be told, getting to know new people is simply a lot of effort and I’m just plain lazy.
Just for today, I can consider the benefits of recycling.
