A load of rubbish!

That I’ll keep, this can go. I don’t want this, that can stay.

I’ll keep the bicycle, the helmet too. I don’t want another hamster so I’ll sling the cage.

That’s okay, that’s a waste of space. These are useless, these are quite handy.

What’s in these drawers? Keep, discard keep, discard, discard, discard, keep.

Why we kept that stained mattress I don’t know, or that dotty doo-dah over there.

That dead garlic stinks and those onions pong. Bin!

I don’t even remember getting that awful mannequin. Oh, sorry darling, I didn’t realise you were there!

*note to self, get eyes tested.

    After he gets his eyes tested, he’d better think of offering her an elegant restaurant dinner, a nice bouquet of flowers, a lovely gemstone…

    “dotty doo-dah” and “the awful mannequin” had me laughing out loud. You know that would make a great band name: “Dotty Doo-dah and The Awful Mannequins”.

    Haha!! Another great ending!! I recall reading a recommendation by an organization expert. Her advise was to go through our clothes closets and ditch anything that had not been worn within the last year (some actually say 6 months which I think is a bit drastic). Like most women (and men, I reckon) I have items in my closet I haven’t worn in 6 years let alone 6 months. I guess I really need to get ditching! You just never know when those bell bottoms will come back in style!

      I too have clothes I haven’t worn for years, but in my case, I keep them in the hope I one day lose weight! As for bell bottoms, bring them on!

    I just checked, Keith. Marie Kondo is not smiling. Not at all. In fact, she seems a bit twisted. Fun again.

    LOL that’s a fun twist, and exactly the sort of thing my husband comes out with, too!

    Dear Keith,

    Oops. I hope she has a sense of humor. As for me you remind me of all the dotty doodahs I need to get rid of in my basement. As always I love listening to you read. Fun story.

    Shalom,

    Rochelle

    That’s what she gets for not helping. One can’t mistake a moving person for a mannequin.
