In the midst of cleaning up my apartment before my mom’s arrival tomorrow night, I decided to clean my car. I knew it had been a while, but I didn’t realize how long a while.

I found a newspaper dated September 6…2002. I filled an entire trash bag full of crap. Maps and guidebooks from all over the country. A danish (thankfully prepackaged, and still in its packaging) of indeterminate origin.

Granted, about half of the trash accumulated in the last couple of months since I’ve become a P.A., MapQuest maps, reciepts, run requests and the like. And about four zillion water bottles, since I’m always chugging the end of one as I walk to my car.

Now all I have to do is get the outside of the car cleaned…because I strongly suspect the Green Monster’s orginal color wasn’t gray.
