And this paddle game...

Following is a full inventory of necessary items when you plan to "run away from home, or maybe just to the front yard."

Battered lunchbox One piece of sourdough bread Lip balm A tiny notepad One pencil One penny Crayons Miniature slinky 4-year-old family photo Night-vision flashlight Fingertip flashlight 7-ft-long bungee cord made from ponytail holders Braided belt (aka: an Indiana Jones whip) Motion-detector spy tool Tupperware container of contraband M&Ms

And that's it. That's all you need. Not one other thing.
