Plenty

Laylabean asked: What does the word “Plenty” mean to you?

I once heard a statistic that was something like if you own more than three pairs of shoes, you are in the top 5% richest people in the world. The exact data isn't important, but most of us take for granted what we actually have. On days I'm feeling poor, it's a nice reminder that I'm not. I know where my next meal is coming from.

I should also never complain that I have nothing to wear.


A closer look:





That may be half my shoe collection. May. Instead of arranging them all artsy like Laylabean did with her spoons, I just took the picture as is. They are about five feet from they should be, which is on one my three shoe racks. That pile is currently on the opposite side of my room, and I can't see it. However, on this side of the room, looking around I can see ten pairs of footwear very much not where they should be.

The point is not that I should clean my room, though that's painfully obvious. The point is that I have plenty. I have everything I need, and then some.

Emily - As if I need more clothes. ;) But no. You should move to DC. That is all.

Laylabean - Thanks! Those are some of my favorites too.
