Stuff or Junk

June 29, 2014

Wherever I go I pick up free newspapers and magazines and when we were in Memphis recently I picked up a magazine called “The Downtowner” which featured a column called “So It Goes”. In the June/July issue column “Her Stuff, My Junk”, Raymond L. Atkins writes that while he and his wife agree that they need to get rid of some of their stuff they don’t agree on what stays and what goes. He notes that his wife calls her stuff stuff but calls his stuff junk. For example he collects shot glasses and old bricks. He relates the following conversation:

Wife:You’re collecting bricks now?

Atkins: Look at this one! It’s stamped Ohio.

Wife: Will we be using them to break the shot glasses?
