Over-Stuffed

STUFF. We all have it and getting rid of it is a good thing because after awhile, it takes up too much space in the house. In his 1997 classic monologue, the late George Carlin said..."So stuff is important, You have to take care of your stuff. You gotta have a place for your stuff. Everybody's gotta have a place for their stuff. That's what life is all about. Trying to find a place for your stuff! That's all your house is, a place to keep your stuff. If you didn't have so much stuff, you wouldn't need a house, You could just walk around all the time. A house is just a pile of stuff with a cover on it."

There are lots of ways to get rid of stuff like flea markets and yard sales, but the easiest way is to just give it away. This week, the lot of stuffed toys shown here went to a local nursing home to be given to those who don't have as much stuff. Carlin called this "The Redistribution of Stuff."

It works.

We did a lot of "stuff redistribution" when we sold our NJ house. It was satisfying until we wondered why we had all this "stuff" in the first place. The old saw should be reworked into "stuff happens". For example, in the case of coat hangers, we are convinced they breed. At least the wire ones; the plastic ones, not so much.
