Today on the 5: As we close out the year, I take a little time to talk about my lack of attachment to things. Is this a case of something that I have in common with a lot of you, or am I in minority in this?

I sort of know where you're coming from. Just in the last few months I found myself going through things I've kept, and wondering why I still have them. You've seen the car (truck) I drive, 6 times in the last 3 months I've filled it with stuff to be dumped. And there is more to go.

It's also funny the things parents won't tell you because they think you'll get upset. I've got a doozy, I wasn't told who my real father was till I was 33, by which time he was already dead. The only reason I was told was because my brother's father, who I thought we shared, was trying to make contact. My mum thought I'd be upset, I wasn't, but what really surprised her was it only took me half an hour on the net to find a few pictures of him.

Funny thing too, I can tease my "half" brother as well, my father was cooler than his father, and he has another half brother with the same name as him, what a laugh.
