Time capsule

     My sneakers looked worn and old when in reality my mother had only bought them for me just weeks before. My mom had always gotten mad at me for ruining my shoes so fast. See, I spend a lot of time in the woods; digging, playing, exploring. So, anyway, I was running around when I notices something that looked like the corner of a box sticking out of the earth. I began to dig around it and slowly began to pull the box free from the dirt. It was blue and dirty and there were holes forming where insects had been eating away at the cardboard. I stuck my finger in one of the holes and started to pull as to make the hole bigger. Soon I had torn off most of the top of the box and began to pull items out. These items were from 2014. From more than ten years before I was born. I brought my findings back to my house. When I showed my mother what I had found she just smiled and shuffled though the items in silence. She read the various notes and held a chunk of yellow fur in her hands. 
     "Isn't this awesome mom? I wonder who's stuff this is. How old were you in 2014, 18?"
     "Yes honey, I was 18 years old when I put these items in this box."
