I have several wonderful, meaningful posts floating around in my head, but had to opt for this one after this evening. I arrived about 10 minutes early to the Parent Teacher Organization meeting tonight at the girl’s school, and being self-conscious and only moderately active didn’t want to go in yet so I sat in the car and cleaned out my purse. Here’s what I found:
A wallet. A checkbook. A grocery list. A deli ticket #71. Five receipts. Five pens (blue only). One bottle Pepto Bismol children’s tablets. A cell phone. Fingernail clippers. A pair of tweezers. (pulling out grey hairs at work). Aveeno anti-itch cream with coritsone (leftover from chigger attack), antibiotic cream (leftover from mad scratching of chigger attack). Three tampons in no usable form. Box of mints. A vitamin. Pink post it flags. A rock. Two feathers. Two paperclips. A pair of butterfly barettes. One earplug (given to Ems by a kind man at the fireworks, don’t know where the other one is). Miscellaneous straw wrapper bits. $5.76 in change in the bottom.
Though I am official mother failure—-no tissues, we use hankies.
