1. 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.
