Today we have a seemingly random blogging challenge: What is in our desk drawer, and what inferences can someone make from the contents?
I'm going to show it all. No hiding, no shame. This is the top-left drawer of my office, which is also pictured below.
There's a lot of stuff here: a hairbrush, Advil gels in a baggie, Excedrine, candies, a CD of a student's band (they already broke up), $5, lipstick, powder, kleenex, really old markers that are probably dried up, post-its, a hammer and a couple of business cards.
I guess if I were to take a kinder view of my office and drawer I could be a little more sympathetic. It's nice her student thought enough of her that he wanted to share his band's music with her. The handle of the hammer could indicate she once was ambitious about personalizing her office. It's always good to have $5 lying around; you never know when you might need coffee and the credit card machine is down, or someone is coming around asking for donations for a worthy project. Two shades of lipstick? That's just being prepared.
Still. It's only week #4 and already things are a mess. I gotta get it together!
