When the Past Comes Back to Haunt You

My father: Can I borrow your notebook?
Me: Sure. The one on the steps, you mean?
Dad: Yeah.
Me: I didn't even know that was mine.
Dad: It must be yours. It has "I love Duran Duran" written on the back.

I look at the back of the notebook and laugh at the "I heart Duran Duran" surrounded by a badly-drawn heart.

Me: Holy hell. That must be from 20 years ago.

(Twenty minutes later)

Me: So, how's it feel wandering around carrying a notebook with "I heart Duran Duran" etched on the back?

He looks down at the notebook and flips the cover so that it's no longer showing.

(Day 24)

Yep, I can relate to that. I've had to flip the cover on a bunch of things I used to love! LOL

BTW, I gave you some link love on my last post.

lol I still like Duran Duran but even I'd be a bit embarrassed about walking around with that written on a notebook.
