"Junk in the Trunk" giving me Ideas
I know, I know, every man must have junk in his trunk. Many of them like it when their wife helps them decide what to do with it. We had fun with this yesterday, in fact. It was very entertaining, and the neighbors put in their votes as well. Should it be "boxed up", otherwise contained, or let loose? Should there be room for more? What else should we add to the impressive contents to make sure we're prepared?
After our lively discussion, we came to the conclusion that it was ok to box some of it up, especially the main tool. I mean, things might pop out when you least expect them to, and something that big might hurt someone if not properly contained. Besides, then it's always ready in an emergency, when he needs to get a lift. We also put the cables in, so we'll be ready "on the road". You never know when you might need that extra jolt of electricity to get you going. The blanket also stayed, because we both love to cuddle.
There were some instruction books that we took out. You either know it or you don't; you don't need "how to" books to tell you what to do. We decided to keep a few of the magazines, though. My husband likes to "browse" in them, fantasizing about what he can't have. There's also a few good tips sometimes.
Since sometimes we're at it longer, we also added a couple gallons of water. We want to be sure we're prepared for when things get steamy. We also got some lube, just in case. You can never be too prepared. My husband suggested we also have a first aid kit, in case I (or he!) needs to play nurse. Because we both have cell phones, we always have cameras ready to take possibly incriminating photos.
So, now that you've read my description of my husband's junk, what do you think? We're prepared for anything, around home or on the road. Are you?
