Regular readers will know that I’m involved in a home renovation project, one that is just beginning. Presently, the 20 foot shipping container in the driveway is being filled with our stuff.
George Carlin knew about stuff. He said:
If you didn’t have so much god damned stuff, you wouldn’t need a house. That’s all your house is is a pile of stuff with a cover on it. … Your house is a place to keep your stuff while you go out and get more stuff.
Sometimes… you gotta get a bigger house. Why? Too much stuff. You gotta move all your stuff and, maybe, put some of your stuff in storage.
Yeah, I know.
Carlin asks if you’ve ever noticed that someone else’s stuff is shit and your shit is stuff. After 43 years married, Gwen and I each have our own piles of one or the other, depending on who is doing the identification.
