Trash or Trophy

I threw away my soccer trophies. Soccer Trophies? Is this the same Mellifluous I know? Why yes, I played soccer from 2nd grade through 9th grade. And no, I wasn't more athletic then than I am now, really. I did play long enough to be a decent fullback by the end. But I played on a very good team for most of those years. I often felt like the weakest link, but eventually I was ok. And I enjoyed it...ok, so sometimes I enjoyed it...and sometimes it was much more about the friends on my team.

So, what do you do with trophies from years past? I'm NOT planning to display them...and keeping them to show my kids...well, I can tell them and show them pictures. So, these heavy mementos are hitting the dumpster. Its a little sad, but its also freeing.

I got rid of nearly all of my childhood trophies some years ago. I think it was when I moved out of my mom's house in 2000. Most of them were baton twirling trophies that were handed out to everyone at the end of a season, and the taller ones had been broken in our move to CO in 1991. I think I gave them to goodwill. I only kept the very first one from my very first season of twirling. It's just kind of a reminder of being a carefree little kid.
