Forgettable

I'm as forgettable as yesterday's lunch.
I'm as forgettable as your ex-boyfriend’s least favorite sweatshirt. 
I'm as forgettable as the next pair of waxed arms you see. 
I'm as forgettable as the third sentence on page 56 of the novel beside you. 
I'm as forgettable as your fifteenth kiss. 
I'm as forgettable as a cameo appearance. 
I'm as forgettable as the nail color you wore 12 months ago. 
I'm as forgettable as the promise you made to yourself.
I'm as forgettable as the song that reminds you of nothing. 
I'm as forgettable as the last promotion email you just deleted, unread.
