It sits like that for months.
And I take no notice.
Then, out of the blue, it annoys me.
Seriously annoys me.
I then set to like a mad woman
and empty it out onto the floor.
And attempt to sort the stuff of piles of semi-organised chaos.
Some of the stuff on the carpet?
The two beads which were stuck up The Boy Child's nose in December, 2009.
Which required a visit to A&E and a note left for The Brainy One.
Coin bags of assorted foreign currency and a Gibraltarian £5 note.
A lot of stationery items I'd forgotten about.
Photos of our nephews. Those cheeky looking twins will be 33 this year.
The framed photo of the Texan Nephew has been upgraded to a more formal one.
Two sterile bags containing a wisdom tooth in each.
My wisdom teeth. Extracted in 2004.
A favourite quote from the TV series Ally McBeal.
I cut it from an Ally McBeal calendar at the end of 2000.
What's lurking in your desk drawer?
