gottawonder Loves her tortoise!
when I am looking for a specific thing, and I’m forced to dig around in my junk room.
Even after getting rid of about half of the stuff in that room, it’s a lot of stuff.
I feel a little weird sometimes, like “I could totally have enough stuff to puzzle an entire African village somewhere”. What would they make of my box of candle holders, my old shoelaces, all of my craft stuff, magazines, weird little broken things that I don’t even know what they’re doing there, jars of screws and nails, old digital cameras, endless string, boxes of fabric and yarn, buttons, and so on that “I might need someday”?
That sounds like it would make such a fabulous short film. A hoarder opens up her stash to a village, and it’s a parade of colorful fabric, and they make instruments out of the cookie tins and metal bits, kites out of all the paper, and they dance with abandon at the fun things they’ve found.
