BowTie immediately recognized this situation for its Friday Challenge potential — to list the weirdest things that they took or left behind.
I have a friend who’s freaky ex kept insisting on collecting a box of vinyl floor tiles. It wasn’t enough floor tiles to actually tile a floor. They were spare, old vinyl floor tiles, moldering in the basement. What on earth did he have in mind? Crafts projects? He was passionate in the defense of HIS floor tiles. (They matched the house SHE was living in.) Still cracks me up.
My freak, during the settlement discussions via lawyer, kept asking me to return a history book of West Virginia coal mining. I think it was just an excuse to remain central and demanding. Do you have my bakelite fountain pen of 1939? My stainless steel grill brush?
“Is it a gold-plated grill brush?” my lawyer inquired.
So, CN, what gives? Or rather what stays?
