17

17 seconds ago, I took a sip of coffee.

 

17 minutes ago, I listened to my work voice mail.

 

17 hours ago, I watched a football game with my family.

 

17 days ago, I was out having sushi with my 'hood mommas.

 

17 months ago, I was recovering from elective surgery

 

17 years ago, my little brother was killed in a car accident.

 

He was 17.

 

The date was January 17, 1994. 

 

I kind of hate the number 17. 

 

Carpe Diem, PTA. Save me a spot.

A million thoughts of love to you.

Much bigger, much stronger, much more powerful than a 17.

A million and one thoughts of love, actually.

Just to be on the safe side.

17 definitely isn't my favorite. This didn't help it.

Goosebumps, I believe this is my first time here and you have talked me right into hating 17.

I am sorry that your brother was taken from you and your family.

I now hate 17 too. Almost as much as captcha codes & word verification. Almost.

Beautiful post though. For real. And I'm pretty sure some as awesome as you gets a spot.
