1: a bushy-tailed rodent (Neotoma cinerea) of western North America that has well-developed cheek pouches and that hoards food and miscellaneous objects
2 : a person who collects or hoards especially unneeded items
3 : Connie Havens
The 3rd definition is especially handy here. My parents recently cleared out portions of their attic. I always said I wanted to be in Europe if Dad ever started cleaning out the house, but I made it realtively unscathed in Austin.
They did bring several huge boxes of “my stuff”. This stuff consisted of countless drawings, art projects, and other things that I was completely clueless about. One such treasure was an Indian vest made out of a grocery bag, and matching hat made for a Kindergarten Thanksgiving Day event. Leave it to Connie, it was all still intact
CB loved it. Although I don’t know what is more depressing. The thought of that vest being over 25 years old, or that CB had no idea what a “Paper” grocery bag is.
Either way, I feel old.
