Option Six: Seven Things
Some men’s memory is like a box where a man should mingle his jewels with his old shoes.
Give me seven things that would be (or are) in your memory box. In this case, the box can be literal, and hold jewelry, or other special trinkets and treasures, or metaphoric. You’re not required to explain the items in your list, but it’s more fun for readers if you do.
1.) Movie ticket stub from the 1986 movie About Last Night. This was the very first movie my hubby and I saw together. Several years ago, as a Christmas present, my hubby found me an original movie poster and now it hangs in our bedroom.
2.) A jade rock my hubby bought me the first time we went to Dollywood in Pigeon Forge, TN. I have always loved rocks, and green ones are my favorite.
3.) Ticket stub from the only live Pink Floyd concert we saw, in October 1987. They actually flew the pig inside the arena - too cool!!!
4.) The baby rings that belong to all three of my girls. I intend to give these back to the girls when they have their first babies.
5.) Bird seed bag from our wedding in 1990. We made these ourselves and I was so proud of them.
6.) Dried yellow rose petals from my wedding bouquet. I also have other dried flower petals in my memory box.
7.)My diamond horseshoe ring - the first ring my hubby ever gave me.
