Tonight I was cleaning in our basement and in an old, old wallet tucked deep away in a box that’s moved with me who knows how many times, I found a receipt from 12/14/1991 from B. Dalton Bookstore #312 in the Cherry Hill Mall. I was in ninth grade. The receipt read:
0-89909-235-7 3.95 0-395-59673-4 8.95 1-55704-092-3 9.95
Recognizing those numbers as ISBNs, I did a quick search and found that I purchased:
- The Old Farmer’s Almanac 1992 (a yearly Christmas gift for my Dad)
- Information Please Sports Almanac 1992 (another gift? probably.)
- Words of Martin Luther King (no idea who this was for)
Apparently, at the time I was all about giving the gift of statistics and other enlightening information.
