time capsule

Sometimes the dryer will devour your socks. Sometimes my drawers will filch my stuff. Case in point, when I couldn’t close my drawer this morning, I figured something had fallen down the back, into my dresser’s cavernous insides … Lo and behold, I found this!

A leftover sampler baggie of Jane products, a line that made a brief blip in the teen cosmetics industry circa 1999. I remember using Jane products (especially this one shade of red nail polish that I loved and have never been able to replicate), but I cannot remember losing this baggie. How did it end up lodged between my drawer and the side of my dresser? And how is it that I never found it, though I cleared that drawer out countless times since my high school days? It’s a mystery.
