Oh my goodness; I carry tons of needless stuff in my wallet. Going through it, I find:
Driver’s License, Credit Cards, Insurance Cards, Blockbuster Card, etc.
OK, that’s the normal stuff.
On to the weird items:
A copy of my contact lens perscription.
A ticket stub from the Game 1 of the 2003 American League Championship series (I was at that game).
A receipt for jewelry I bought my wife back in 2000.
A NARA visitor card which expired in 2003.
A receipt for another piece of jewelry I bought for my wife in 2003.
A receipt for a CD-ROM burner I bought back in 2000 that I no longer have (it broke a few months ago with the help of one of my kids – in the circular file that goes).
A receipt (anyone see a pattern here?) from a resturant that I went to in the Old City of Jerusalem back in December 2001.
Two receipts of books that I bought in Borders at 5 World Trade Center in 2000.
A clipping from the New York Post on October 12, 2001 in which Richard Gere is quoted as saying that the best way to deal with terrorists is to love them and feel sorry for them. According to him they are “creating such horrible future lives for themselves because of the negativity of this karma.” :rolleyes: I keep that around as a reminder of how silly some people can be.
A business card from my friend’s eyeglasses business.
A piece of paper with information from an auto accident that I had back in 2000 (it’s probably safe to throw that one out).
A reciept from the scanner that I bought back in 2003.
A copy of my fat picture (I lost 95 pounds).
A small love note that my wife slipped into my wallet last November that I just found now…
A 20-shekel note. In case the messiah comes and I suddenly find myself in Israel, I’ve gotta have a way to make a phone call to my sister-in-law to have her pick us up.
