So maybe it wasn’t quite the miracle I thought.

.

The other day I blogged about the miracle of finding my husband getting rid of things in the big barn.

I was happy!

I was thrilled!

Heck, I was downright orgasmic.

Until I walked upstairs.

.

.

A lot of the things I thought he’d gotten rid of…

.

.

Had just migrated upward instead. So with determination in my step I went back down to help him sort through things to throw away.

It did not go well.

Here are a few of the items he couldn’t bear to part with.

No, you’re not seeing double. That’s a flippable measuring cup… though why on earth you’d need to flip one I don’t know.

.

.

Blank dog tags.

A box of them.

Why? Unless he’s planning to outfit a woodchuck army…. I don’t see the point.

.

.

A rock.

And while I’m normally all about the rocks, I do prefer mine outside…. or slowly cooling my gin and tonic.

Finally there was this:

He wouldn’t part with it, even though he didn’t know where he’d gotten it or what the hell it was.

So let me resurrect that old blog series I used to torture you with..

Name That Crap!

What is it?

( And yes, I did research so I know the answer. )

  1. You clearly have an alien finger, which is probably all your husband kept as a souvenir after fending off an invasion with a rock. Well, he kept the invaders’ dog tags, too, which obviously are blank since aliens can’t write English. I would keep all those things, too, to remind me of “the day they came.”

    The measuring cup is garbage, though. Toss it out.

  2. “No, you’re not seeing double. That’s a flippable measuring cup… though why on earth you’d need to flip one I don’t know.” You, obviously, spend more time at the bar then in the kitchen–one side measuring dry items (flour for example) and the other for liquids (water) saving steps like having to wash out a cup in between!!!
    You will have to download my cooking class!!

    1. So when I turn it over for water, the residual flour spills on the counter. And when I turn it over for flour the residual water spills on the counter. I’ll stick to my 2 separate cups thank you.

  3. No clue on that last item, but this post is the reason I have fought the addition of a shed in the backyard. The more space you have, the more crap you need to fill it. But I lost that argument…I start work on the shed pad next week. It won’t be long before I’m posting my own mystery items.
