Remember Eldon, the Cookie Eating Lizard?
|Seen here, eating a cookie.|
He met his demise in the freight elevator of my apartment complex. Precocious Daughter was holding him, and he slipped out of her hand and broke into many tiny blue lizard-pieces.
She was devastated.
And for a moment - just a moment - so was I.
And then I realized, maybe Eldon was just a symbol of the parts of my old life that don't belong in my new life. And even if that's a stretch, he was just a thing. A wonderful little thing that I enjoyed for many years but is now shattered beyond repair.
Like my marriage.

As always, it's all about priorities.
RIP, Eldon. Thanks for helping me let go.
