Sounds like there is a small child involved with some of these items. Plastic chicken?

Put them all together and you get: A plastic chicken wearing earplugs sitting on a coaster eating mushroom protein and drinking astringent?

1- a (do you comb 'something' with it?)
2- b (we have plastic animals everywhere - if you saw your old car would you take it for a spin?)
3- c (food in my purse is either pulverized within 10 minutes or eaten within 12 minutes)
4- c (you and your creams!)
5- a (you and your facial astringents!)

Okay, now I'm going to play on my site...

1. I'll go with c because I actually also have both a and b in my medicine cabinet

2. a
3. I don't think any of those are weird. I probably have the same items in my purse (who knew we had so much in common)
4. again, I have all of these on my nightstand
5. a. I'd be afraid I might get that mixed up with the vodka.

There was just one that really stuck out:

"tiny plastic chicken from a supermarket vending machine" WHY?!

Tell me you were drunk and it sounded fun. :)

The tiny plastic chicken was a humorous gift from a college boyfriend during a late-night trip to the 24-hour supermarket.

Oooh, I like this! Okay:

1. The mascara wand. Why you hangin' on to that, girl?

2. Both a) and b). A tiny plastic chicken? LOL. And I think it might be time to toss those keys, or have them melted down into a fashionable pendant. ;)

3. Hmmm. The earplugs.

4. I'll say the foot cream, just because I have the other two on my night table, too.

5. Batteries -- I've heard you should keep them in the fridge, but never really believed it. Is it true?
