Recently we moved to a larger home. Since we moved during the start of a school year, I am slowly working through non-essential boxes. Today the kids and I discovered my 90s crux, beanie babies. Tucked away for the last 17+ years, each stuffed critter once held dollar signs. Now, they just hold little plastic beads that soon will be strewn carelessly about. As the kids unpacked, aka dumped, its contents, I saw the methodically placed tag protector and special plastic cases for the big-ticket beanies.
What’s that? What is that gingerly tucked in the bottom? Why it’s my Princess Diana edition beanie! Ah, she was once worth over $500 and now her only worth is the smile generated by daughter.
Your candle’s burned out long before
Your legend ever will
