When I was in high school and found out that I would be going away to university the first thing I did was begin searching for a trunk. Isn't that what everyone does? Finding a new trunk, not an old smelly one, that was in my price range was not easy, but I was determined. It turned out that no one used trunks any more to travel, only super stars in bikinis like Mariah did...
I remember thinking a trunk was immensely practical. It could be used for travel, for storing things during the summer in the basement of my dorm, it could be used as a coffee table and most importantly it could be monogrammed. I finally found a trunk and as soon as I received it I whipped out some sticker letters and got busy personalizing it.
I knew that the other students would be arriving at their dorm rooms with practical Rubbermaid boxes, suitcases and of course stolen milk crates. I was the only one with a trunk! (Yes, I did my share or stealing milk crates from the back of variety stores in the middle of the night. I was very picky and only "borrowed" pink ones)
My old trunk is long gone. It turns out that hauling that thing from apartment to apartment is no fun, so one day in a fit of frustration I scraped off my monogram and hauled that sucker to Goodwill.
I've noticed that lately I have been saving quite a few images with trunks in them. (Hmm, maybe I should of kept that trunk?!)
