I'm slowly (very slowly) working my way through all my crap and ruthlessly tossing stuff which doesn't fit. The debris I'm coming across and the most unlikely junk I've accumulated over the years is astonishing.
I'm truly amazed at how many I own.
How many white T shirts are necessary to get by in life?
I'm only realising this as I've had a maid come in recently and she took it on herself to iron and fold em up.
At £10 an hour I suppose it was a more interesting activity (in front of the telly) than actually cleaning
When T shirts are scattered around in laundry baskets and piled high and crumpled, never to be worn, they don't acquire any sort of critical mass in your consciousness.
If I stacked up all my T Shirts one on top of the other they would reach the top of ....well you get what I'm saying.....
Some of these shirts are years and years old (they've gone grey)
Others were bought last week.
Sometimes I just have to shake my head from side to side.
PICTURES OF OLD GIRLFRIENDS
I'm not talking about pictures I've taken.
I'm talking about pictures they had taken by some pro photo bug friend of theirs (and just happened to have in a frame) and gave to me. At the time it was a bit endearing to see that "I was soooo fine I could have been a model".......... thing.
Monuments to the girl's vanity and my bad judgement.
Why has it taken so long for them to go in the........
The vast majority of what I'm picking over is junk and a bit disappointing.
Clearly I'm a Master of the Mundane.
I'd have expected to find this stuff on the shelf at Wallmart (Asda here in the UK) rather than hiding under my bed.
Where are the lost manuscripts?.....The brilliant body of unfinished work hinting at an un-cynical , un-jaded, insightful....... younger.......... me?
I'm afraid they reside in the drunken drift off to sleep we all indulge in from time to time.
I have to face up to the fact that the sum total of the past years is a ton of spent batteries, impulsive DVD purchases and electronic junk.
How many web cams does one need?
Its a bit sad really.
Well not sad .
It is what it is.
Before ye cast the first stone...........
Look in your own closet.
