I have three photos… and it was hard to narrow it down. At first I though, well, these important somethings would be people. But I decided that I’ll chose my few prized possessions to share with you because that’s probably what the prompt is actually asking for.
First, there is the jewelry box my pappy bought my two year old self before he passed away. (Cancer bums me out.)
It’s chock full of jewelry. I should probably purge some of that, actually because I have jewelry overflow.
Then, there’s my Peepaw’s hats. He never went anywhere without a hat on. :) My mom tells a story about their car being on fire. She ran in the house to grab her Sunday shoes because she’s sure the house is going to burn down and my Peepaw just asked “Where’s my hat?” before he bothered going outside to check it out.
I bet my mom doesn’t still have her Sunday shoes.
And last, there is my Grandma’s faux diamond necklace. It’s costume jewelry, but it makes me feel classy when I wear it. (Also, I love classy costume jewelry.)
All three of these people passed away as a result of cancer. So, get your colon checked, eat less red meat, eat more greens and antioxidants and don’t smoke.
For the love of God, don’t smoke.
