The good Melli saved Fun Monday in extremis, and asks :
Show me (or tell me about) that ONE item in your house that you would just LOVE to put in the next neighborhood yard sale - or take to the dump - but that for SOME reason you just "can't"... and share the reason too!
Now that is not very easy for me, because when I don't like something I just throw or give it away. I am not a person who hangs on special objects or things in general. If tomorrow my house would burn with all its content, I would start to built a new one, with a new cat collection. That's what I think theoretically, fortunately practically it hasn't happened. But it's true I don't really keep on old things.
But there are two items which I always wanted to get rid of and they are still in a plastic bag in the basement. They take not much room but still, why do I keep them ?
They are two of my very first dolls from my childhood, very damaged by my son when he was 2 years old and my mother had given him my dolls what I didn't know. When I realized it, it was too late. I should have let him break them completely ! Now I am sitting here with the ruins and don't want to throw them away.
That's why they are still there. It's probably up to my son to finish the work he had begun when I am in heaven or hell.
