86 screws of all sizes (yes, I counted)
1 deck of playing cards still in the wrapper
1 partial deck of playing cards
4 alan wrenches and one tool with eight sizes of alan wrenches (funny that we can never find them when we need them)
14 dead batteries
2 rechargeable batteries (but we can't find the charger)
Several paper clips
$2.94 in change which went to the Operation Rice Bowl
1 remote control for the AC
1 disposable camera that needs to be processed - from the looks of it, it's from 1992
Several (broken) child safety devices
4 cough drops
1 putty knife which came in handy when I had to scrape the sticky cough drops from the bottom of the drawer
2 bottles of glitter1 package of Pez
1 electronic poker game
2 players club cards to various casinos
1 hotel room key
1 cell phone that fell in the lake and doesn't work (why are we saving it?)
2 rolls of electrical tape
And a TON of other miscellaneous items.
The problem is that I don't know what to do with the random things that I couldn't part with. Some things were moved to another junk drawer (dumb, I know), others were filed under trash, and some were put back in my new "junk drawer organizer" for which I was relentlessly teased.
Did you know that I have a problem with cell phones getting wet? This morning when I was yanked out of bed by Murray, I grabbed my phone on the night stand only to discover that my water glass had leaked all over the phone. It's currently in white rice and I"m hoping it will be restored. Too bad the phone I found in the junk pile had the same diagnosis.
Tomorrow I plan to clean out my purse, which will probably be a much more challenging task than the junk drawer. Wish me luck.
