What's In The Box?

My friends Aaron and Macy say that everyone has a special box, and you can tell a lot about a person by what's in their box (please, no genitalia jokes, please). Macy has the program from my senior recital in her box, which is amazing to me. I can't believe my program made it into someone's special box!
My special box is pretty big. There's a lot of stuff in it, so here's a list of SOME of the things in my box:
two Interlochen graduation programs; a spork from Taco Bell painted with my high school sorority colors; a medal for Outstanding Newcomer from the 1997 ATU Theatre Guild Awards; Dustin's senior picture; ZTA secrets; high school ID; the only fax I've ever gotten; the poetry chapbook I wrote my senior year of high school (dedicated to Charlie); a love letter from Dave; my St. Genesius letter, saying I've been inducted into sainthood; a postcard of Nina Simone; a letter from Whitney Kirk, Miss Arkansas 2003; about 40 postcards and letters from Ashley; a Polaroid of my mom, circa 1984; CORE Team bingo; Ryan Camden's funeral program; a piece of yellow bungee cord, from G. Chad Thomas, from Fine Arts Camp; a tiny gold megaphone; the best birthday card ever from Pat - with Abba on the front!; an "old-timey" picture of me, Katie Shelley, and Katie Hollingsworth; mutliple love notes from Nate; all the wedding invitations I've ever gotten; a banner from Crazy for You that reads "1984 Prom Queen"; four dice; a Cinderella Valentine from Sarah Pollard

and lots, lots more

OKay, so my hope chest is in storage but here are the things that go in it when I get it out! The little hats my babies wore in the hospital the day they were born, plus the scrubs steven wore into the csections that the nurses put their little baby foot prints on. Some high school prom pictures, random memorabilia from my wedding like my garter and guest book, what am I supposed to do with those? Letters from a pen pal I had in Romania, my high school band jacket and letter.

awwww....I have a box. Well, I have a crate actually and then it has some folders and some small boxes and one really special box but really the whole crate is my box.

Mine is still box-sized, not quite a chest or a crate, but it used to house a bath gift set with four or five big bottles and jars, so it fits a lot of stuff. No jackets, though.

aww. I don't have a box. I am not much of a saver. I sort of left a lot behind when I moved to Chicago.

I don't have a box either. I feel as though I should start one to be cool.

ah youth. You are able to keep your precious memories in a box or a crate. It takes a entire house to keep mine and I bet the moms and dads represented by Amanda's friends feel the same. Hold those memories close and never forget the good times.

Oh...I thought that a Secret Box was the place where you keep your weed.

I guess not.
