Anyway, whilst scrubbing the bath and shower screens I did some thinking. About how you can have some parts of your house that are always picture perfect, and then other areas/cupboards that you couldn’t care less about. Me? Well I’m pretty anal about keeping things tidy but my kitchen cupboards are a bit of a disgrace, and I really don’t care about it. I also refuse to iron. I just don’t do it. And I don’t care. What someone can deal with, another could not. But I think I have found a universal item in the house that would be in a similar condition.
I give you. The cup o’ Mystery.
You know the one. In the kitchen, or bench, near the phone, packed to the brim with pens and well, stuff. Mine even has a broken handle because it has fallen down off the bench a few times and had it’s handle broken off. Classy hey? It’s also SO full of pens – many of them that don’t work anymore, that you can’t add another item to it. Although most days I try to, so that there are 4 or 5 items that are just balanced there, ready to fall at any moment.
I wanted to check my shower cleaning theory this morning. That in every one of these cups, all over the country, nay the WORLD, there are a few consistent items.
So, I emptied out the 27 pens, 2 pairs of scissors, crayons and pencils.
And BAM! Right next to the 2 broken DARTS (of course?!) there they were! It was true!
A Hair elastic.
A hair clip. Or two in this instance.
God only knows what a corner of a wrapper is doing in there (seriously was someone SO lazy that they put it in here rather than the bin?!) or a rabbit ring, but there they are. My 3 items that I think are in most of these cups. Actually, maybe it’s only a girl thing? I certainly remember going through our cup when I was little and in need of a hair elastic…there was always one in there!
So. Tell me. What’s in your cup?
