Tony was great. Sometimes you thought the tiger and cereal were named after him. But there were times he wasn’t so great. Like the time he left you stranded at the movies because he was too busy playing video games. Then there was the time he was checking out your friend, right in front of you.
But there were some cool things about him. You always found his throwback style a little eccentric, but still cute. He liked strolling through thrift stores, and his favorite was Goodwill. He called shirts and pants “pieces” and said each “piece” had a story. You didn’t believe him half the time, but you found some pretty good “pieces” yourself.
He was always on the hunt for kitschy records and tacky bowling shirts. They smelled really bad, no matter how many times you ran them through the washer. The music, on the other hand, was always pretty cool. The music aligned with your life so well, you thought each album would be a good contender for your life’s soundtrack.
He started making mixtapes with some of your favorite songs by Deathcab for Cutie, and even wove in songs from bands you never heard of like Tycho and Sun Kil Moon. But then you started growing up. Suddenly, those songs sounded whiny and melodramatic. He didn’t agree. He told you that you were going mainstream.
That’s when you started noticing more annoying things about him, like how he liked to take you to hole-in-the-wall diners for dates. One or two were fun, but come on, can a girl get some PF Chang’s for once?
Nevertheless, you moved together into a tasteful artist’s loft downtown. It wasn’t because that was all you could afford; it was for the experience of it all. You saw a rat family watching Netflix under your couch one night, but Tony didn’t care. Finally, one day he dumped you for someone who worked at a local bookstore and always wore a The Smiths T-shirt.
It hurt for a while, but you’re over him now and onto the next one! It’s time to get rid of all the hipster knick-knacks he left around. But…you just can’t bring yourself to throw away the mixtapes. They mean too much. Plus, those songs fill you with nostalgia, remembering how easy and carefree you were once upon a time.
