The horrors within, aka my childhood memories stashed in my mom's closet

    You know, one grows up thinking one lived a pretty damn normal life, and there's really not much there (short of a beehive hairdo and buck teeth in third grade) that could be seen as embarrassing.

    Until one goes home.

    My mom's been on me for years to clean my old shit out of her house, and since they have to move by next summer, I thought I'd dip in today. In less than an hour I have found notes from friends during fourth grade, my senior book, cutouts of Shaq and Corey Haim, REALLY old copies of the Lexington Herald-Leader (including a Chuck Culpepper column from when UK was the No. 2 seed in the East in the 1992 NCAA Tournament. Hi Duke!), hair scrunchies, a Betty Boop keychain and a pair of Jordache jeans.

    God help me when I dig deeper...call for help if I'm not back in a few hours.

    Are any of the scrunchies red?

    I feel you IJAG. I feel you.

    Recently my mom was showing Little Man a bunch of stuff from childhood including -- get this -- the blue jean cutoff shorts I was wearing the day I got slammed by a truck while crossing the street and ended up with a three-week hospital stay.

    Corey Haim? That explains a lot.

    Shit, Ace, Haim was one of my mainstream crushes.

    And TSP: No, but I found a shirt with four boxes with headshot drawings in them: Doug Jones, Greg Swindell, Brook Jacoby and Sandy Alomar Jr.

    Needles to say, that one's going to my home.
