This week, on the promise of an upcoming garage sale (it's still on, Chris, isn't it?), I've been going through all of my cr...um, I mean stuff to see what I want to get rid of. Yesterday I cleared out half of my books. Today I went through my closet.
I have a small closet. But it's packed with stuff that I haven't seen since moving in. I found a couple surprising things.
First, I found my old Nintendo Gameboy. I don't know why I ever bought it as I rarely used it. I found games still in the boxes that I bought them in. And I wonder: who's going to want to take these off my hands? No one owns a Gameboy anymore.
I guess that's why I held on to it for so long. I don't want to throw it out (not environmentally friendly). It still works (I assume--the batteries are long dead). But I don't play it, and I won't play it again. What do I do with it now?
The other thing I found I forgot I had. Sometime in the late '80's I got a handheld TV (it was a birthday present). It's got a two inch screen, but it is in color. Last time I tried it, it worked, but now with the digital conversion the antenna won't work.
What do I do with it?
It's still in pristine condition (I didn't watch it very frequently). I guess it could be used as a monitor for something, but with laptop computers, cell phones, and mp3 players with video screens, who needs such a thing?
On the other hand, I can now see the floor of my closet. At least I accomplished that much.
