It’s a handy dandy hand purse owned by My Sweet Rib (MSR) but now gone gone gone to the Goodwilly down the road from here. The Purging Lutheran thinks they ought to have a special wing for items donated by the curators of The Gatwick Gallery of Sad and Usual Purchases. MSR has had many purses make there ways through the hallowed pages of the daily purge. She, obviously, has a thang about them. In a purse she typically keeps tweezers, sticks for lips, a mirror, minty mints, linty lints, loose coins, a Kohls card, a few business cards from a few businesses, punch cards from sandwich or frogurt shops for one free (insert appropriate vendible here), a scorpion, two paperclips, and a gumwrapper. But never, ever, never ever a hand kerchief.
Our Marta is big on, well, just about anything a person could wear from head to toe. The Lad is a big fan of collecting carbohydrates. Rice, taters, spag-hetti, taters, rice, rice and rice (sorry, that’s not even a sentence). And The Purging Lutheran? I own about 1,500 to 2,000(?) compact discs. They are so thin they are too hard to count properly. When our family moved to North Carolina for one year, My Marta offered to unpack and store the CDs for me. How long did it take to separate them by band and release date? No time at all for My Marta. She stacked the whole lot by color. This is something she is proud of to this day. That’s my little girl.
What do you collect?
What do you have too many of?
Do they make you happy or sad?
Luke 12:15 And he said to them, “Take care, and be on your guard against all covetousness, for one’s life does not consist in the abundance of his possessions.”
