If I wake up before dawn and decide it’s time to organize some tote bags, it’s nobody’s business other than mine.
Is it too much to fall back on categorizing all the HEB city tribute bags, seasonal skeleton and flamingo bags and Trader Joe’s lunch bags by theme, size, texture and preference?
Some personalities can identify with each other. They are my tribe.
Then there are the NPR canvas bags, commemorative conference bags, and some made from promotional T-shirts. These media avoid waste and also spark conversations.
I know other women who love their bags and collect bags from bags. It doesn’t matter if I’m a nerd to keep the collection every now and then. There is pride there.
Am I extreme?
Take this example. I once mentioned to a woman that I had recently rearranged my sock drawer. She glanced up with a bit of shock in her voice. “How did your sock drawer get disorganized?” She inquired.
Since that day, no more socks have been moved. I’d like to see what her socks look like.
Bonus to this friend / fan if she recognizes herself and contacts me about this memory.

Life is raw. Cookie dough helps, says the Doughp gang, delivering “legitimate cookie dough” that goes both ways.
Eat it raw, heat it in a cookie or my favorite: bake it halfway in a sweet dough for your ice cream, etc.
