We’ve all seen the memes, and most of us have lived through the experience. There are twelve margarine tubs in the fridge, but only one actually has margarine and it will take psychic powers to find it among the week’s worth of leftovers.
Then there are the cookie tins full of sewing supplies. I love cookies tins, and frankly I think finding sewing supplies in them is better than usually better than finding cookies (not always). I especially love finding buttons in those tins. I still use tins to store buttons. Perhaps it is the dragon in me.
For most of us, this is a shared experience.
But how many of you talk about he coffee tins full of nuts, bolts, and found metal pieces that could someday come in handy? Did any of you ever try to move one of those suckers? Five pound can my right butt cheek. Those things had to be 20lbs each, and there wasn’t just one of them, but many lined up on a table or shelf bowing from the weight.
I’m proud to say I have inherited 2 such cans. Haven’t used a thing in them once, but maybe one day…
Until next time.
