25 single chocolate toffee cream truffles
1 small plastic pearl necklace
5 wall clocks
Each of these items, has a crucial purpose to my life.
The dog shampoo is to wash my hair, for I don’t necessarily prefer soft hair. I prefer not knowing if it’s dirty.
The truffles are to melt, melt and drizzle them over my dinner because I don’t have time for more than just one meal a day, and dessert is the most important.
The necklace is for my fish. I break it and allow the pearls to sink to the bottom of the bowl. I have two fish. Margaret and Joan. They don’t move much… but that’s okay. I don’t prefer activity.
The clocks. The clocks are most important. I have 285 clocks, and 5 more isn't enough. I need more of them. I always need to know the time. I need to hear the noise to know that I haven’t gone deaf. I need to see them move so that I know that everything hasn't froze. So that I know that it’s not 11:24 p.m.
