Sometimes things remind me of the ex and it really catches me off guard.. I've finally gotten to the point that I do not think of him daily (took years) so when things remind me of him it shocks me a bit. Though, I suppose it shouldn't. I spent around a third of my life with him. And I will spend the rest of my life with a piece of him.
I generally don't watch movies more than once. I generally don't read books more than once. There are so many movies and books in the world, who has time to reread or rewatch? There were a few movies, though, that the ex and I enjoyed together - Super Troopers, Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas, and Full Metal Jacket. We would use quotes from these movies in our everyday vernacular, as I have mentioned before.
I just finished watching Full Metal Jacket. I had forgotten that there are so many quotes that the ex, in particular, used frequently. "I'm in a world of shit." "I didn't know they stacked shit so high." "I bet you're the kind of guy that would fuck a person in the ass and not even have the goddamn common courtesy to give him a reach-around." "numb-nuts" "What is your major malfunction, numb-nuts?"
Okay, so while I am compiling these quotes I can't help but notice the vulgarity. It is what it is.
So I wonder, do other people use these phrases? These are classics, right?
