A few months ago, I had a conversation with myself while cleaning the apartment. It went like this.
“Take a deep breath because today is the day you are finally going to start throwing away stuff you don’t need and don’t use. Steel your heart, woman!”. I went in confident, armed with a feather duster and garbage bags.
Hours later, I found myself sitting in a circle of old essay papers, pebbles I found at the beach, pretty but worn-out wrapping paper, and tons of shopping bags.
Before you either condemn me severely or want to hug me out of self-identification, you should know that besides this completely valid reason why one should keep beautiful paper bags, some crafty people have even invented a way for you to use their handles to make conversation-starting jewelry.

Isn’t that beautiful? Isn’t that conversation-starting? I would talk to the person whose wrist this was attached to. Wouldn’t you talk to me if this was on my wrist?
