While cleaning my room, I decided to pick out some of my most random possessions:
A. My Playbill Collection – I’ve loved theater since I was a wee one, but I didn’t start collecting Playbills until early high school. Now, I save the program from every show that I see. It’s fun to look back and remember all the fabulous productions I’ve been able to experience. The one on the top is from when I saw Antony and Cleopatra at Shakespeare’s Globe in London.
B. Antique Purse – This is a one-hundred-year-old drawstring purse given to me by my grandmother on my sixteenth birthday. It belonged to my great-grandmother. It is very delicate and has intricate beadwork covering the entire pouch. My great-grandmother must have been pretty classy back in the day.
C. Cheap Tin Ornament – My friend gave this to me. I’m pretty sure it was from a flea market. For some reason it reminded her of me, though I don’t know why. Perhaps it means I’m cultured? I like it because I’m fascinated by Indian culture (and it looks like it’s from India). I’m currently trying to figure out what to do with it.
D. Drivers License – Ah, my very first drivers license. In my opinion, it boasts the best drivers license photo in all of history – which is why I’ve kept it for so long. The lady at the DMV said I could keep it as long as I didn’t tell anyone. Apparently you are supposed to cut them up when you get a new one. So I guess it’s my only illegal paraphernalia.
E. Tape Recorder – Let’s go way, way back to a time when tape recorders were a thing. I actually received this from a friend two years ago when he was graduating college. Sadly, I’ve never used it. And that should change soon. I wonder if it will let me speed up the tape to where I sound like a munchkin. That would rock.
