  • Yes, iPhoto, move it to the trash.

    No, please don't ask me if I'm sure. I'm not, but I have to purge while I'm able, and you asking me to think twice doesn't help.

    I don't like being this way - all or nothing - but it's how I get by. If given the opportunity to un-experience certain events and emotions, I would, but since I can't, I erase them as efficiently as possible. Make like it never happened. Live like it's dead to me.

    Don't act like I'm the only one. Whether publicly or privately, we all engage in some sort of systematic and/or symbolic cleansing in order to salvage our sanity, or at least a remnant of it.

    So, yes, iPhoto, move it to the trash before I have a chance to think about it or to regret it, and don't ask me about it again.
