Who can forget the song from Naked Eyes "Always Something There to Remind Me"? As I write this blog I'm listening to it.

I thought of this song and the subject matter for this blog because of an event that happened earlier today. You see, no matter where you move, no matter how far, or what other people you encounter there are always things that remind you of certain person that made an impact on your life.

It doesn't matter if it's a restaurant that you went to with that someone from your past or when someone says a certain phrase, it somehow always reminds you of a certain person.

Like today, I'm driving in my car listening to the radio coming from the eye doctor. I hear 3 notes of a certain song and automatically HIS image pops in my head. I KNOW THAT SONG!!! THAT FRICKIN SONG! I only need to hear the first part of the beat...and I KNOW!!! Damn it! Every single time I hear it, it makes me think of him. UGH! Mr. Dallas!

I think that song was actually kind of our "unofficial song." Yeah, "Over My Head" from The Fray.

I remember mugging down listening to the song. And every time it seemed to be on the radio when we were driving, we would crank it up!

I hate it! No, not the song. I actually love the song, I hate the fact that EVERY TIME I HEAR IT...he pops in my head. Like a sinus infection. Seriously God, Why? It's been 2 and half years since we broke up. You'd think that God you could maybe...just maybe make me have amnesia with that.

Don't get me wrong, it's not that I hate or dislike him, because I don't at all. It's just that, if that realationship wasn't meant to be, I wish I didn't always have the reminder of the pain I felt after we broke up.

A pain that still lingers a bit I think. A pain that lingered for 6 months after we broke up. A pain that made it hard for me to even want to try again.

Yet, every time I hear that song...I think of him. I think of the good times. I think of how sweet he was to me in the beginning, and how he appreciated me more than anyone I've encountered to this day. Damn that man Mr. Dallas!

I don't want people to think I'm super hung up on this guy but, I do know that he has been the ONLY person that has ever made me feel sexy, appreciated, and yet, has maybe hurt me more than anyone.

Your sense of smell is sense that has the most impact on memory. Listen to that song while smelling something distinctive like roses, paprika, or puppy blood and there's a good chance the old memory will be pushed aside. It may work. Well no, it probably won't but at least you'll have fresh puppy blood.
