David almost always has an item or items that capture his attention for several days. These objects usually accompany us on errands, rest on the bathroom counter while bathing, and join David in bed at night. Yes, he has slept with, to name just a few, a coffee filter basket, cowboy boots, all 25 felt ornaments from his favorite Christmas tree, a guitar and even a garden cart.
Please allow me to state that it was a clean garden cart, purchased at Target in the fleeting hope that I might have a garden cart to use while, you guessed it, gardening. David had commandeered the original cart to pull around the back yard and he would rarely allow me to sit on it, or to commit the even more atrocious sin of hauling something.
