Hello Kitty, Hold These Craft Sticks for a Second

This is what a little girl needs to go on an adventure.

Kleenex, Band-Aids, notebook and pencil, hand sanitizer, crackers: all these things make sense to me. In fact, these are all things that you will commonly find in my purse.

Ear warmer? Well, not quite as necessary, perhaps, but still reasonable, especially since the winter we didn't get in December and January has decided to show up late and visit during February and March instead.

Wood-burning tool and dirty craft sticks? Now these raise more questions. Where would one be going if decorative wood-burning was likely to be necessary? Were the craft sticks there to be decorated? How many times does a woman look through her purse with that familiar burrowing motion we've all seen (or done) and mutter to herself, "Where did I put that wood-burner?" or, similarly, "Where did I put those dirty craft sticks?" And on a more common sense note, do adventures typically take place near an outlet?

These questions may never be answered, because it was several months ago when this bag was packed, and the destination of it's owner is probably lost in the mists of time.

Sounds like you might be fortunate this adventure never happened. I really long extension cord might have reached the tree house...and it's just a small stretch from craft stick to walls and ceilings.

Well, why not have those things in your purse? You never know when you might feel like burning some dirty craft sticks???
