My dad used to keep his wallet in the back pocket of his pants. We all told him this was a retarded idea, but he insisted the wallet was so big, stuffed with about a month's worth of gas and grocery receipts, that his ass would know if it was gone. This delusion is one of his many quintessentially daddish quirks, along with his penchant for polo shirts and dorkily clipping his cellphone to his belt.
When I couldn't close my wallet this morning, I thought of him, and also wondered: What the fuck do I keep in my wallet?

Recently, I cleaned out my wallet but now find myself stuffing crap back in it because I've stretched it out so much that what little I decided to keep falls out if I turn it the wrong way.

According to the back of the card, my last purchase there was in June 2006. I'm still seven bras away from a free purchase.
