Something mostly true

When I was growing up my father kept a mezuzah in his sock drawer. It wasn’t the only thing he kept there. My father’s sock drawer was amazing. It was, by volume, only about sixty-five percent socks. The rest of the space was taken up by various items of importance– our passports, his cufflinks, a pocket watch, a pocket knife with “Old Timer” written on the handle. I remember gold bars in there, but that could be fantasy.
