  1. That’s pretty good. I like to take inventory, on an annual basis, of the contents of my leather jacket. Since I live in Texas, and only wear it when it’s cold enough, it doesn’t get a whole lot of wear. Let’s see — some breath mints (surely, those don’t ever expire, right?), some chapstick (same on expiration, although I have to ‘break it in’ every season (scrap off the outer layer)), a guitar pick (you can never have too many), some pocket lint (like rabbits it grows with no encouragement), and on rare occasion, some money (but not enough to shout about).
