Meet Polly. I love her. So much. Those fat little legs, tiny lips, rosy cheeks and big green hair bow are about the cutest things gracing any of the walls in my home. Why exactly I decided that one of my favorite people needed to be hung above the toilet? I simply don’t know.
All in the name of fabulous decor poor Polly has been hung over the potty. It isn’t exactly the greatest place to hang out with her nose directly over over what is definitely the most malodorous seat in the house but, in her defense, poor Polly has never complained.
And it’s not like she doesn’t have reason to be slightly discontent with her position in life… I mean, imagine all of the things right in the line of vision of Miss Polly… Seriously. Think about it. Poor thing has seen more booty than a pirate I’d dare say.
Is it any wonder she shifts her gaze to the side? But just like an accident on the side of the road, you know those eyes just have to sneak a peek a the catastrophe just below. And just like my poor dutiful Clive, her across the street neighbor, Polly sees things that no one should ever see day in and day out. There are, after all, some things you just can’t forget! The awkward illnesses, the profanities cursed when attempting eyeliner application that doesn’t look like you have a child as a makeup artist and the and wrinkly granny rears this girl has seen. And not a single complaint from Polly. That’s bravery right there :)
But still those poory, beady eyes… they scream #HelpMeForget! Just like in the Quilted Northern Designed to be Forgotten videos , directed by Academy Award nominee Bennett Miller that I shared with you last week, there truly are things once seen can never be unseen.
