This evening, I decided to “bite the bullet” and clean out one of the drawers in a little used former nightstand. The drawer was filled with reconciled bank statements both from my dad and from me. The records were well over twenty-five years now so there is no need to hang on to them any longer.
As I was going through the drawer and the records to move them to a shred box, something rattled. I pushed the statements aside and, what to my wondering eye should appear but an item that I have looked for throughout the years: my high school class ring.
I had pretty much written it off. How it found its way into the check reconciliation drawer is beyond me. I will stick to one of two reasons: (1) Murphy lives with me, or (2) Gremlins inhabit the house. 🙂
I have been reliving memories of high school this evening. What a happy find!
