Armrest Inventory

February 16, 2012


My evening went a little longer than planned, so I found myself in the drive-through at McDonalds instead of cooking a delicious, brussel sprouts-packed meal for Lloyd. I ordered the new non-chicken-sausage nuggets, but they were not ready for me and I had to wait in the parking lot for a while. (*groan* What? Food that is not ready for my consumption less than 30 seconds after I have decided upon it? Are we living in caveman times?)

To pass the time, I took a picture of my armrest, because nothing else had happened during the day that was post-worthy, and there wasn’t a lot of daylight left.

Not to mention the dust and dirt.

The contents:
$3 – which I had just spent on my dinner, not having enough cash on me.
Spare change
Chapstick (remember to remove before summer heat hits)
A collection of pens/pencils
Candles and matches for when I am stuck on the side of the road, or if I want some nice ambiance while driving.
A useless pair of sunglasses
A fork
Keychain bottle opener and screwdriver.

Huh, looking over that list, I think I’m prepared for a fancy dinner on the beach.

    My armrest contains CD’s, tissues, and emergency papers (car registration, insurance papers, etc.)

    I don’t see any dust or dirt AND you have everything arranged so nicely!

    My armrest inventory would only have one item: CDs. The floor of my car is a whole other story though. 🙁

    My inventory: car-phone charger, tissues, a phone book. Not even any candy. I need to fix that.

    Non-chicken sausage nuggets at McDonalds?

    Why don’t they offer those in Chicago? Are they any good?
