And furthermore

Some things last, some things shouldn’t

Some things last forever it seems.

For instance:

Pickles
First impressions.
Vicks . . . bought some during the Reagan administration. Still got most of it.
Good friendships.
Memories of the first kiss.
Hairbrushes.
Scars.
Birdbaths.
Love, if we’re lucky!
Sports team loyalty. . . Go Red Sox!
Fruitcake. . . Johnny Carson once joked that
there is only one in the entire world and people
just keep giving it forward.
Our fascination with fireworks on the Fourth of July.

Some things shouldn’t last very long (or at all).

For example:

The norovirus.
Potato chips.
Anger.
Bad Jokes.
Elevator rides.
Sales pitches.
Arguments.
That dreaded exam by the doctor.
Fish.
Envy.
MRIs.
Combat.
Poison ivy.
Political speeches.
Time spent studying your profile in the mirror.
