Most of us have either a box or basket to hold small handy and essential items like reading glasses, pencil box, important notes, etc.
EJ had a basket with a handle. Noticed that it is in past tense.
Cinders came, saw and conquered that basket on the floor at the corner!
There was nothing much EJ could do except to clear out everything, took out an old worn-out baggy shorts with a waist-band that has completely lost its elasticity.
EJ tried drapping the shorts over and on top of the basket but it kept falling through. Then EJ pushed the basket halfway into the shorts like wearing it.
It worked and held well. This is how it looks like!
