    But you'll keep the other until eternity, taunting you, reminding you of better days gone by.

    THEORY: the bobby pin lobby (Bobby Lobby™) sends thieves into your bathroom during the night so you have to keep buying them back in perpetuity.

    3. Lip balm.

    Did you know that nobody in the history of the world has ever finished a lip balm? It's science.

    4. Any and all loyalty punch card thingies.

    If you magically got them all back you'd never have to pay for coffee, wine, or froyo again.

    5. All of your relevant possessions the second you have to run out the door.
