my friend Ali used to carry around a pig's eye in her purse,

enclosed in an empty Altoid tin.

i carry around vertebrae in my purse, enclosed in an orange pill bottle. the bottle is identical to the one i keep pills in, so sometimes when i go to take a pill, i find vertebrae instead. it feels kind of strange, kind of surreal, because i never fully expect it. i like that. i like seeing things in places they wouldn't normally be. it makes me wonder--how many times have vertebrae been inside pill bottles before?

i wonder if Ali ever went to get an Altoid and found the pig's eye instead. that would probably be even better than finding vertebrae in a pill bottle. how many people have ever seen a pig's eye in an Altoid container? probably not too many.
