foolish romantic

You can track how romantic an individual is by the number of past lovers they include in group email travelogs sent from the mysterious wanderings our lusty generation are so fond of undertaking.

While there is a sense of the longing of a individual to make themselves appear exciting and unusual in this practice, you can sense the loss, of someone who was once important, and the reaching out, wanting to keep that connection, no matter how far away, no matter how long ago.

Imagine a generation ago, this was never possible. You simply couldn't let someone know just how excellent you had turned out to be, how brave you had become without them.

Unless you wrote for the National Geographic of course.
