I am not certain to be appalled or humbled by such an accounting. The pockets of my youth would have contained something edible and/or chewable, at least one marble to look at, a small magnifying glass for starting fires, either a yo-yo or a rubber ball. The only mitigating additions to today's pockets are the fountain pen, the note book, and the pocket knife. These last items could possibly bail me out of a boring situation, but I left less to chance when younger.
