What's in YOUR basement?

Posted - August 1


  • 4170

    yoga mat and light weights 
    deep freezer 
    shelves filled with bins of crap I’ll never use again but can’t throw away 
    Christmas tree and decorations
    old racks of DVD‘s I’ll never watch again under the stairs, Demi John, oak barrel
    that‘s all I can think of without looking.

      You’re working with the police again, aren’t you?  Did some anonymous busybody call in and accuse me of holding women against their will and running some kind of sandwich-making sweatshop down there? Lies, all lies!  I know my rights, I don’t have to answer your questions, now get your foot out of the door and go away. Grrrrrrrrr.

    Wait, what?  I got a vasectomy just after my youngest was born!  If there are pregnancies in the basement, they have nothing to do with me!

    Cat Boxes and boxes of things I don't need.  If you don't use it or wear it in a year: throw it or give it away.  But wait...there are a few precioous treasures I must hold on to.

      Wait, you have boxes full of cats in your basement?  I’m calling the police.

    Nothing.  Thankfully, I don't have a basement (claustrophobia and arachnophobia).

    I've told this story before, but if you missed it-----------  When I was about 8, I decided to do a good deed and sweep up my grandparents' basement. I opened some cabinets that were full of fruit jars with strawberry preserves AND OTHERS WERE FULL OF COINS!  THOUSANDS OF COINS!  Dozens of jars!  I went upstairs and told grandma about the 'treasure' in the basement.  You see, grandpa was a successful house painter during the 'Great Depression'. His clients included children of American Presidents of that era. He had a large crew who traveled the area states to paint mansions. So when grandpa emptied his pants pockets every night, he dropped the loose coins into fruit jars. Some of that included silver dollars. Anyway, the money was counted up and put in a bank, and the total was something like $4000, enough in those days to buy a new Cadillac.

    I don't have a basement or even a garage. I live in a small 12 unit apartment building. A basement might be nice though! This post was edited by Nightwolf5 at August 2, 2020 7:50 AM MDT
