Name a totally useless possession and how you came to acquire it.
I have a Bluebird of Happiness. By itself it is completely useless as it is a bit of blue glass in the shape of a bird. Even more useless, but adding to the fun, is I have two of these blue glass birds - a normal size and a baby size.
I wish I could remember exactly how they came to be in my possession. I only know that I got both of them from my mom. I believe mom acquired them (or at least one of them) from a student when she taught school, many years ago.
We laughed about these little Bluebird of Happiness knick-knacks. It became something of a joke between us - the useless glass birds and the fact that we possessed two of them. In all honesty, the Bluebirds of Happiness have brought my mom and I just that: happiness. They make us laugh. I smile every time I see them. They make me think of mom.
One day I might share the reason I took such funny, ridiculous pictures of my Bluebirds of Happiness. :) Until then, I hope they have made you happy today.
