“365 Boxes:” Day 32

by | Feb 1, 2023 | "365 Boxes" | 1 comment

After yesterday’s disappointing assessment of the first month’s progress, it’s time to get back on task. But maybe not with a particularly tough box.

Box 32: Wednesday, Feb. 1, 2023

CONTENTS: This box contains mostly photos that sat on the younger daughter’s desk in Corvallis — and might have followed her to Pullman during her four years there, but we’re not certain about that. The photos depict the younger daughter with friends and her sister — not to mention a solo shot of the handsome (but a little dense) tabby who is sitting directly to my right as I write this. The box also has a wooden “Lucky” sign, which I’m guessing she might have picked up during a study-abroad session in Ireland. Finally, the box contains what appears to be a white headband for a pair of Sol Republic headphones, a gift from long ago. (Now, of course, she uses AirPods.)

DISPOSITION: Well, of course, we’re not going to throw away the photos — but if the younger daughter doesn’t want them, we will store them in scrapbooks and donate most of the frames. I’m tempted to just mail her the sign — or sneak it into her luggage the next time she visits Corvallis. I can’t think of a use for the headband, so that’s going into the trash, unless you know someone who really wants a white headband for their Sol Republic headphones. No charge! The box will be broken down and recycled.
