We had an effect in-game that instructed an investigator to drop 2 random items, does this include common items, unique items and spells?

If so how is a card selected randomly given that they all have different art on the back? If I shuffled them together I'd still be able to tell which was my unique item for example. Even if I'm only selecting from my common items, some of them are dual-sided and could still be identified.

The only thing I could find in the rules was the term 'possession' which refers to both common and unique items as well as spells.

Should I just shuffle my whole inventory and select one with my eyes closed? It's not a big deal but the inelegance of it makes me wonder if I'm doing something wrong.

Thanks.

That's what we did, just closed eyes and selected one. Didn't seem like a big deal to us...

The rule book states items consist of ONLY common items and unique items (not spells)

I was just making sure I have the rules straight.

There's also an entry in the RRG for "Random".

Happened to me in my game yesterday. I simply gathered my items (excluding spells) and shuffled them under the table so I could not see the card backs etc. Then I just pulled out two cards.
