  • a mug. beloved, and one of a pair. seems cruel to separate them, but then there is the chip.
  • several batteries. apparently they lose their juice simply sitting on a shelf. slackers.

  • one cloth shopping bag. less durable than the paper ones, which kind of makes you mad.
  • one green glass. my fave. an accidental divestment.
  • faith in humanity. fortunately this is a renewable resource.
  • one glass pitcher. lovely and unused.
  • an eyeglass case. these seem to be breeding in my drawers.

  • three jars. if there is nothing in them, i fail to see their purpose.
  • two small flashlights. there is a point at which fixing things seems more trouble than it's worth.

  • one pair of slippers. too well used, and too unsightly for further use.
  • all the plastic plates and bowls. did i learn nothing from montessori?
  • a key that fits no locks. somewhere a door is permanently closed.
  • two throw pillows. the name says it all.

  • three flower pots. you can have too many flower pots.
  • one thermos coffee pot. no lid. defeat.
  • one dish towel of odd proportions.
