This is my very favorite wallet. And a portfolio of sorts that had personalized stationary inside! Inside the portfolio was a list I made of everything I received for Christmas in 1993. Yes, I am apparently a nerd who would make a list of the things people bought me! And by a list of everything, I mean down to the fact that I got mouthwash, deoderant, nail polish, and mascara (among other things) in my stocking. Here are the big winners from the list:
- an electric typewriter
- 3 Trolls
- Sega Game Gear
- black stirrup pants
And, to make the list a little more practical and less nerdy, I wrote down who gave me what and checked off the one's that I sent thank you cards to. I really was good at sending thank you cards at one time. Or maybe it was just because my mom made me do it.
- My library card.
- Two middle school ID cards. Sorry, I purposely covered up the pictures. You only get a tiny glimpse of how horrible my hair looked, and you don't get to see the glasses I had on!
- My prom promise card. "Prom night will be one of the most memorable nights in my life, and I want to stay alive to remember it. So whether I attend prom or not, I promise not to use alcohol or drugs on prom night. I won't let these things mess up an important time for me and my friends. We don't need them for a good time. We need each other. We can still have a good time, but we can also be safe, sober, and alive." I don't think this was from the year I actually went to prom, but I'm not sure because it wasn't dated.
- One of my mom's business cards.
- My temporary receipt before I got my first driver's license. Apparently, I lied about my height.
I'm not really sure why all of those things were together in one wallet since they spanned a time of about 5 years. Hopefully I was not still using that wallet when I was in high school!
