Cleaning stuff at Mom's

So we're cleaning stuff out of the garage and dropping off old items to the goodwill. One thing I had to talk my mom out of was this high chair. It was mine and my sister's.

That's right I sat here once. Once.

I was like "Why do you want to keep it?" "Who do you think is going to use it?" "Why not pass it along to someone who will put it to good use?" Eventually she agreed.

Another cool item was this bowl.

It's claim to fame in my life? I peed in it. When my dad bought this bowl we were in the car and I had to take a leak. So what could I do? My dad told me to pee in the bowl. So that's the pee bowl. This is all according to my mom. I don't actually remember urinating into this bowl.

Funny you'd think I'd remember something like that. And since it happened six months ago.

Man, Jorge I would have kept the pee bowl - what a neat conversation piece for entertaining it'd be and after your guests start eating out of it you could tell them the story of how it got its name!

Or use it like a punch bowl & serve pineapple juice out of it...

I'm surprised your mother didn't use the "But maybe someday you or your sister will have children who will come to my house and then I will have a high chair for them to sit in." LOL

My mom has that same bowl. I never peed in it though. ...

My mom also had that bowl and I still got it!!! Must have been the "gotta have" item back then!

Christamc said...

As a Mom I am shocked that your Mom let you talk her into giving up that chair! You are goooood :) My Grandma still has my highchair....I gave it back to her after both of my girls used it. Merry Christmas from Texas!

I still have my boy's crib, and no WAY do I give it up until they have kids. It's the sentimental Mommy thing, I guess. As for the bowl...Gawd. You should have told your Mom to put it up on eBay. Considering what they'll pay for Britney's ABC gum, she could have made a small fortune!

OK, this is getting ugly...

Heather said...

You should put that kind of stuff on eBay, and then send the money to charity. :)

D said...

In all seriousness, while it's great that you are donating these items to Goodwill you should not forget that if you donated them along with a signed picture to some Jr High School band auction they would get more money for a charity than Goodwill's paltry $2.

Your humbleness is, as always, refreshing- I keep in touch with a handful of working actors and you are by far the friendliest, but don't forget that you have the power, just by virtue of Lost, to generate more good for people than you did before.

Use the force J.

When I read this, I laughed so hard I almost peed my pants. Fortunately, I had a bowl nearby.

That is WAY too funny because just a few months ago I wrote an entire post on how I made my son pee into a bag in the car. Not nearly as fancy as the bowl I guess, so you win!

Erika Jean said...

lol! funny about the bowl! We have childhood desks I WILL NOT let my dad get rid of ;-)

Sarah said...

LOL you hypocrite, talking your mom out of knick-knacks when you have all kinds of blogs describing your pack rat tendencies.
