I’m a What?

One evening Derek and I were working our jigsaw puzzles and enjoying a pleasant conversation.

I don’t remember what exactly we were talking about, but I heard him say, “Well, you’re kind of a hoarder.”

What?

Me?

A hoarder.

No way.

I had visions of that cable television show where people are practically buried up to their neck in stuff. I found myself becoming defensive.

“I’m not a hoarder,” I replied with a forced smile.

“You kind of are,” he said as he glanced up from his puzzle.

I paused to reflect on his accusation.

TRUE, I’M A BOGO FAN. (BUY ONE GET ONE)


YOU HAVE TO BE PREPARED FOR A SPILL ON YOUR KEYBOARD.

WHAT IF WE’RE SNOWED IN?

A GIRL NEEDS SOME SUSTENANCE DURING THOSE LONG HOURS OF WRITING.

A WRITER NEEDS PENS, DOESN’T SHE?

YOU CAN’T STOP STUDYING THE CRAFT.

BACK TO SCHOOL TWENTY-FIVE CENT SPIRALS…SCORE!

A WRITER MUST HAVE A SUPPLY OF BLANK JOURNALS.

 

Would you consider me a hoarder? What about you? Do you like to stay stocked up on a particular item?
