Leftover toothbrush

On the painfully funny-sad blog Things I purchased for girls that are now of no use to me, a man explains why he still owns certain items he bought for a woman who, by every indication, only spent one or two nights in his apartment. It can be very dry—explaining his matching wooden chairs: “I told her I had enough furniture, but she insisted that I needed at least two more places for people to sit. She’s gone; the chairs remain.”—but also surprisingly moving, as in his description of the extra toothbrush (pictured): “Used once. Now completely useless… Why Haven’t I thrown this away?” Because you haven’t gotten over her yet, you big sap! By blog’s end, though, his heart seems to be on the mend. (TheDailyWhat)
