258.5 Pieces Of Being A Kid

It's like Hoarders, for the Magic School Bus crowd.

You know that stash everyone had that contained all of the accumulated secret treasures of childhood? I found mine...

So I'm currently in that fun process of packing up my life and throwing stuff away before moving cross-country for work. On a whim I decided to check some really old boxes at my folk's place near Atlanta. I came across a familiar sight; the ole childhood treasure box. I could be wrong but I feel like everyone had a place where they kept their coolest and most important belongings. Mine happened to be a discarded silverware case, and to a kid who aspired to nothing less than Kevin McCallister "Home Alone" status, it served me well.

The goods:

1 popsicle stick

19 Atlanta Olympic Game Pins

1 stick of gum (mint I believe)

½ a walnut

4 random keys

1 random lock

2 paint brushes with god knows what on them

2 screws

5 thumbtacks

2 combs

2 inch jagged piece of PVC pipe

1 Atlanta Knights Hockey puck

1 pack of Atlanta Knights Hockey trading cards

3 school buttons

1 Hard Rock Café button

1 "Goosebumps Rules" button

1 miniature R2D2

1 marble

1 vinyl "Creepy Crawly" bug

1 large white bead

1 Native American beaded craft

1 man with moon for head riding a motorcycle

24 feet and 3 inches of random red rope meant for magic tricks

1 Incredible Hulk McDonalds toy (still in plastic prison)

6 pogs

1 slammer

7 rocks

1 pen

1 ancient cell phone case (must have gone in there at later age)

64 cents

1 Terminator arm

1 Construx bit

3 GI Joe weapons

7 Lego weapons


89 sea shells
