The ever-charming Robert of Observations From the Back 40 found himself internetless the other night (the HORROR) when a power outage interupted his nightly surfing festivities. At a loss as to how to occupy his time, he found himself digging in a closet and a meme was born!
Robert found some items of interest in his closet, including, but not limited to one clean red hockey sock, (No, it really was clean. He checked. He sniffed it!) and a single fishnet stocking (bow-chicka-bow!) These discoveries got Robert to wondering, “What’s in your closet?” More specifically, he wanted to know what was in my closet. (And all I can say is, it’s a good thing he didn’t ask what’s in the nightstand!)
Now, my bedroom closet is a nice sized walk in closet that is home to many things that don’t really belong in a bedroom closet. Since the hubby is often a day-sleeper, most of my clothes and shoes and necessary items are housed somewhere other than the bedroom closet. The bedroom closet is kind of a scary place, actually. Everything that doesn’t have somewhere else to reside ends up in that closet. The sad reality is that although I like the house to be really clean whenever possible, I always secretly hope that no one would ever dare look in the closets. When I announced that I was going in, in the interest of meme-ology, I warned everybody that if I didn’t resurface within twenty minutes they should call for help.
I found all kinds of things, like some of the kids old books and toys, purses that I no longer use, photo albums, an old turntable, wrapping paper and supplies, trophies…. and the list goes on. But I thought it would be fun to photograph some of the more interesting finds:
This does me a LOT of good sitting in the closet gathering dust.
Three commemorative piggy banks from a St. Paul Saints baseball game. Because we need THREE of them?
One of the many finer gifts I received for a recent mile-stone birthday, The Old Geezer liquor dispenser. I bought it for our friend, Paul, who kindly gave it back to me on MY birthday. I’m saving him for future regifting purposes.
We’re gonna be rich in about sixty years at this rate.
Holy BIG HAIR, Batman. The wedding limo photo. In the closet. I’m not sure why… Possibly as a form of punishment to the hubby. See? I’m mad at you. And to show you just how mad, I’m taking our wedding photo and stashing it in the closet where I will promptly forget that I did so.
My daughter’s first grade journal. Such precious memories of playing with urinating hamsters (or rather, “ham sires.”)
Photos of an old boyfriend in 1985. He was kinda cute. Too bad his personality sucked. Yes, I’m still harboring resentment.
The finest in 1970′s era toys. My mom was certain I wouldn’t want to part with these, and apparently, I didn’t. Dawn and friends have been partying down in my closet with Lieutenant Uhura for the past lotta years.
So now I need to know…. What’s in your closet? I’m hoping the following will tell me:
Beth at Around the Funny Farm
Brian of Brian in Mpls who I don’t think likes memes, but I bet has some fascinating stuff, judging by what he’s revealed about his bathroom!
Mahala of Hidden Mahala, because she was searching for the potato peeler on the floor so I bet she’s got some good stuff in the closet!
If you decide to participate, show me your stuff then tag three others!
