I finally got a chance to clean out the monster closet I had been trying to clean out for longer than I care to share. WHEW! It feels good to finally have that sucker cleared out. Before I could even get started good, I noticed a box way in the back of the closet. I pulled it out. Inside the box I found a bib, a small blankie, some little baby clothes, a pair of tiny shoes, a blue and white pacifier and even a pair of denim maternity pants. There were pictures from my wedding and of a friend who had passed away. There was a zipped lock bag containing a stack of newspaper clippings from some of my theatre performances. Also inside the box was an entire Star-Ledger newspaper dated January 12, 1991. The front page in very bold letters read: OPERATION DESERT STORM! Under the newspaper was a bag containing over a hundred love letters addressed to yours truly. I placed everything back inside the box and set it to the side. Why had I kept these things? I continued to clear out the closet. I threw out some old clothes along with an old broken Singer sewing machine. When everything was to my liking I breathed a sigh of relief. Finally! The monster closet was in order! When I turned around, I saw "the box". I gently picked it up and placed it in its proper place, right in the back of the closet where it would remain until my next closet cleaning adventure.
