Day 79 - It's the memories!

I did something today I never thought I'd do.

I boxed up all of my ETD hair. All 85 folders, boxed up.


It was funny because as I was carefully placing my beloved babies in boxes, all kinds of memories came rushing back. I met this person while wearing this hair! I went to this place and wore that hair! Oh, remember when all of us went when this hair was released?

Then it hit me. My inventory isn't large because I simply buy too much. It's large because almost everything in it reminds me of something and I can't get rid of it! My inventory is jam packed full of memories!

I loved ETD once. I still love some of the styles and think the brunette shades are still gorgeous. But I so rarely wear it anymore. I cannot tell you the last time any of them were on my head. But to throw them away... I cannot. It would be like throwing away memories.

So like I do with my physical world memories, I boxed them up. I stored them away. And at some point, I may bring one or two out again and wear a hair and think, "Remember when..."

I remember those crazy days of the $50 sale at ETD and everyone heading over there to buy hair, etc. I actually just deleted most of mine and kept a few select ones in my inventory. I can't let go of the Phoebe and Flapper style.

I just wonder where she has been or if she is doing something else in SL under a alt?

I have a few ETD hairs that I bought particularly for themed events; the Flapper is one of them. I still wear those and am glad I have them.
