Junk Drawer Treasures
In the end, you almost always find what you're searching for in that drawer plus a whole lot more stuff that you forgot you had or that you think you might need so you take it out and put it on the counter-and then someone comes along later and puts it right back in the drawer of treasures-of beloved odds 'n ends that you know at some point you might need so you keep whatever it is in there-just in case-adding to the hodgepodge of stuff without even thinking about it.
Going into that maze of miss-matched objects is as exciting to you as a child rummaging through a toy box spilling over with stuff-only your stuff has a bit more history. While you won't find a bike or a skateboard; an onion, ice cream cone full of ice cream, or a carrot or a snowflake, you will find forgotten bits and pieces that tell a story-your story through the treasures you and others once placed in a junk drawer.
