While I was sitting in the fabulous massage chair I was trying to read the latest issue of Cosmo. By trying I mean I was reading it, the little man doing my toes was oblivious to this and attempted to talk to me the WHOLE TIME! Pet peeve. If I'm reading, I don't want to make small talk. I want to enjoy my pedi that I'm paying good money for and read my crappy magazine that I don't get at home anymore. Kthxbai. Tantrum over. I cancelled my subscription a year ago cause it was getting too trashy and I wanted to feel more grown up. Whatever, I snag a copy at the salon every chance I get...only difference is now I'm not paying for it. Best of both worlds. So anyways, there was a little blurb in the "man" section that said 36% of men keep mementos from past relationships. This got me thinking. When I break up with someone, I rid myself of their entire existence. I don't keep cards or notes and I never received any gifts worth keeping. Prior to my hubs I had never been a relationship long enough to acquire anything good like jewelry. So now the wheels in my brain are turning. Is my hubby in the 36% of keepers or the remaining tossers. He can be sentimental...I know he has all the cards, letters, emails, etc etc that I've given him. Is there a box of girlfriends past floating around out there. The jealous woman in me is now putting way to much thought and energy into this so I forget about it...which basically means I didn't think about it again until I saw the Mr. later that night.
Me: So I read in Cosmo that 36% of men keep crap from their exes. Are YOU in that 36%???
Mr: No. Except maybe clothes I got and underwear.
Me: Underwear? Well hopefully not HER underwear, cause that's a little twisted.
Mr: Yeah hun...I kept her panties. NO....underwear she gave me.
Me: Lame. Who buys underwear for their boyfriend.
Mr: Ummm....you did, last week.
Me: Oh right. Well I'm your wife, so that's to be expected. Underwear and socks are the only gifts you'll ever get now.
Oh my husband...always the funny one. So if your husband/boyfriend/fiance kept old love letters and mementos from his exes would you care?? On the flip side, do YOU keep stuff like that??
