Long Ago and Far Away, No. 14

I had occasion to revisit some aging photographs.

I was disappointed and disheartened -- but ultimately somehow buoyed -- to discover that, a hair over a decade ago, even when I was 6' tall and weighed 157 lbs. [these numbers are burned into my head, courtesy o' the measuring girlfriend and the event],

I still had some respectable mantits.

Admittedly, they were not nearly the glorious rack that currently rests on this corpulent frame

[well, on the left side o' the frame; the subcutaneous mastectomy on the right eased the breastiture slightly -- inglorious, yet still substantial]

but they were there in all their incipient glory.


you know, vanity is really wasted on those of us who are so fucked up.

I can't even be vain about the good ol' days.

buoyed, of course, because it just doesn't matter.
