  • another key. what would it unlock?
  • a curtain tie-back. superfluous.
  • a printer software disc. i'm almost free of discs, forever.
  • an ink cartridge. i know i am supposed to recycle these, but sometimes...
  • a shirt. shrunken intentionally, but not successfully.

  • one power cord. gleefully tossing things i may later need.
  • four tiny pencils. as a child i would break new pencils to make these.
  • a plastic tray. possibly part of a printer. not an important part, apparently.
  • four parts of a toy. that we no longer own.
  • two pencil cap erasers. which are useful but somehow irritating.

  • about a million pieces of paper. i hate paper so much that i accumulate a lot of it. which does not make me like it any better.

  • two small pencils. shorties with no erasers. so easy to indulge bias in a world full of pencils.
  • berry flavored lip balm. an abomination i may miss after the apocalypse.
  • a very thin round battery. possibly it would have powered a headlamp i will want to use in that apocalyptic aftermath.
  • a lipstick case. with a mirror! made of red leather! in italy! so pretty.

  • a shower caddy. no place for this in my beautiful new bathroom.
  • an old electrical outlet. unknown to me this was replaced with a newer, better one.
  • all-day callous cushions. makes me hurt to look at the package.
  • a pad of green paper. which reminds me so much of a particular time.
  • a tiny bar of soap. because, how many?

  • a grater with a handle. less handy than anticipated.
  • a glass lid. i almost remember what this used to cover.
  • a plastic lid. i remember the bowl it once covered, but not its fate.
  • a truly terrible strainer. life will be more beautiful without this in it.
  • a truly terrible plastic cup. life will be more elegant without this in it.
