Good thing I picked that up
I don't play cricket. But I figured: "Hey! Cricket ball." So I took it home and tossed it in a bucket of miscellaneous balls (tennis, golf, baseball...) in our shed.
Fast forward to now: mid-Feb, 2015. My daughter is on the cricket team at school (the only girl; woot!), and wanted a cricket ball so that we could practice batting at home.
"Ah," I told her. "I believe I have one..." ;)
Also, I already had two cricket bats -- two different sizes -- in the shed. Again, I don't play cricket -- but they were on sale, and I've had this idea of (one of these days) making an electric guitar out of a cricket bat.
So, you know: it's nice to have useful things around the place. As long as you can find them when needed. Which I typically can. ;)
(BTW -- Yeah, I wrote the date on it. It's one of my "things". :) Because I like metadata -- and if I don't write the acquisition date -- or completion date -- on things, I won't remember the date.)
