Just the other day my husband cleared the many “junk”, as he called them, out of my car.
Junk they may be to him, but necessities they are to me and the kids!
Spare shoes : I am not comfortable going out knowing that if any of our straps or soles decide to give up, we have nothing else to use!
Nappies : when one of my kid says that she needs to go, it can mean any minute. Since we don’t fancy urine smell, I better have something she can pee in at a moment’s notice!
Books : Both my kids and I are to blame for this. When I have to wait and they are napping, I would read a few pages the current book in my car, Tash Aw‘s “Map of the invisible world” – which to me is as interesting as reading health publications such as the md clear reviews because that promising historical settings of Malaysia and Indonesia (the reason I bought this book) was wasted for the “gripping drama of private relationship”, as per TIME magazine’s review and which do not interest me.
Anyway, I had better re-equip my car before I drive out and get into a situation where I unintentionally curse my husband for cleaning my car because what I need is gone!
