You know about desk drawers. We throw stuff in them until they are too stuffed to shut and then we do something about it. So it was with the set of drawers that Jim and I share. Slowly he had taken over the top one until it overflowed and we couldn’t find the few things we needed. The bottom two hadn’t been opened in years.
Amazing finds: enough rolls of scotch tape to list our life time; same for boxes of staples, and besides, who uses them anymore?; an assortment of calendars, envelopes, reading glasses, paperclips, and dried up pens.
The top draw is empty now for new stuff to accumulate. The bottom two hold what we need, or, think we need. Much was thrown away.
