I searched the Glurge Gallery, Inboxer Rebellion, Glurge Archive, and Inboxer Rebellion Archive forums and didn't find this one. However, chow me if you've seen this before.


TO A KEEPER!

One day someone's mother died.
And on that clear, cold morning,
in the warmth of her bedroom,
the daughter was struck with
the pain of learning that sometimes
There isn't any more.

No more hugs,
no more lucky moments to celebrate together,
no more phone calls just to chat,
No more "just one minute."

Sometimes, what we care about the most goes away.
never to return before we can say good-bye,
Say "I Love You."

So while we have it . . it's best we love it .
And care for it and fix it when it's broken .
and take good care of it when it's sick.

This is true for marriage .... and friendships ..

And children with bad report cards;
And dogs with bad hips;
And aging parents and grandparents.
We keep them because they are worth it,
Because we cherish them!

.... __/ /\____

,.- ,.-~ ~-., `-. :
Some things we keep --
like a best friend who moved away
or a classmate we grew up with.
There are just some things that
make us happy, No matter what.

Life is important,
and so are the people we know .
And so, we keep them close!

I received this from someone today
who thought I was a 'KEEPER'!

Then I sent It to the people !
I Think of in the same way!

Now it's your turn to send this to all those people
who Are "keepers" in your life!

... __/ /\____

Thank you very much
For being a special part of MY Life!

You are a Keeper!

I love how it quotes "Ferris Beuler's Day Off."
How can they possibly turn a trouble-making-truant's quote into glurgey goodness? BLECH!

Anybody got any ideas as to what that ASCII was supposed to be?

I like to go down to the playground and watch the kids run and jump and scream, because they don't know I'm only using blanks.

It's a house with a tree on the lefthand side and a graveyard on the righthand side.

Am I supposed to be touched by the fact that someone thinks I'm a little rubber cup that does the same job as a tampon?

I just find it kinda annoying that so many people think I'm incapable of appreciating life until I'm reminded via some crappy email poetry. I mean, if I'm keeping these people close because I cherish them, I don't need it, and if I'm actually only keeping Gramma around because that way I have a better shot at the insurance money, I'm not likely to pay attention to it.

So...the only purpose of stuff like this is to aggravate people, 'specially people who're already swamped at work but have to check their emails anyhow because it might be something important, not that I am hopelessly bitter or anything.

Hey, they think you are comfortable, ecomonomical and less likely to cause toxic shock. Thats quite the compliment!

I love (or hate, one of the two) how the people who send these to me are the ones who never contact me for anything else. Apparently I'm only worth "keeping" so they can avoid bad luck by sending ME this crap instead of their real friends who would throw them through the wall if they did try such a thing.

--------------------
If you're not a part of the solution, there's good money to be made in prolonging the problem.

hey, good to know I'm not the only one! When trying to get a 'friend' to stop spamming me, I've said a couple of times "I'd really like to hear from you, how you and the critters are doing." It seems to be slowly taking.

I'll third that! I have a friend living here in France whom I haven't seen since 1999. Since I moved here in August, I've gotten a number of e-mails like this one from her and her husband (though not this particular one), but when it comes to visits or meeting up for coffee in Paris or even an e-mail saying how they've been doing...nothing! The irony hadn't even occurred to me until just now, to tell you the truth!

Another lifetime I'd have fallen in love with you
Swept away by my feelings, ashamed and confused
But just now it's enough to be walking with you
