Keep This Ticket

I found a small orange ticket in a box of things in the closet. I've been going through every single item I own so that we can reduce our possessions before moving. There's no need to move these boxes from this closet to that closet.

I remember this ticket was pinned to my bulletin board in my grad school apartment. I don't recall where I got it but I was amused enough by the idea of keeping it that I hung it up. And then it wound up in a box with other things attached to that bulletin board.

After all this time, I can't bring myself to disobey its request. I put the ticket in another box that will go in a different closet. I will keep the ticket.

Someday I might need it. What if someone asks for it?
