New Possessions

Naturally, the day after I write about family dinner, we end up going home.

For dinner.

The Universe is just tricky like that.

Not that I’m complaining.  I was in absolutely no mood to cook.  And Olive Chicken and a Baked Potato with few glasses of Champagne is always better than take-out.

I’ll do pretty much anything for a good, salt-crusted spud with a glass of bubbly.

How classy, I know.  Part of me wonders if I’m setting the bar too low, but I just have this feeling that I’m not the only girl in this boat.

I don’t know about y’all, but whenever I go home, I invariably return to our place with an armful of mail and a bag full of new possessions.

Marcus loves this.  Obviously.

And this week was no exception.

I know.  I KNOW.  Please try to contain yourselves.

They don’t just make barrettes like that anymore.

Hell, I don’t think they’ve made barrettes like that for the last 15 years.  So that’s precious cargo.

When I discovered them in one of Mom’s Keep/Toss boxes, I snatched them out immediately.  There’s just so much…potential right there.

Do I wear them to theme parties?  Ironically?  Unironically?  Do I match them to things?  Match things to them?  The choices are endless, really, and I haven’t even gotten warmed-up.

Watch out world.

Did you rock the barrette when you were a pup?

What’s one ridiculously material object you miss from 1997?
