I learned a great place NEVER to keep your extra boxes of contact lenses: an empty Q-tip box.
Yes, it might SEEM the perfect size. And it's cheap, even as plastic containers go. But let me speak from experience: its a very bad idea.
"Why?" The-Guy-Who-Knows-A-Song-About-A-Chicken wanted to know. Why did I keep my extra boxes of contact lenses in an empty Q-tip box?
Why? Because that's just where I kept them. But not anymore. I dunno. I mean, why do you throw away a seemingly empty box of Q-tips when I leave it in the middle of the bathroom floor? Because he's neater than me (and cleaner than me) in general.
And how, exactly, do I express my (very, very true) appreciation for my man's neater-and-cleaner-than-me tendencies? I keep him company at the Home Depot, of course.
I've always been scared of those warehouse type of stores, especially if their parking lot is much bigger than the entire town where I grew up. But I've been discovering Home Depot's redeeming qualities.
Like, who the heck knew they named the shelving units?
This shelving unit, for instance, appears to be named Calvin.And look at this cool thermostat! If you buy it, your children get to eat popcorn! Or wear white! Or something... I mean, they're adorable and all, but what exactly DO popcorn eating children have to do with a thermostat?Anyway, Home Depot's a fun place. And if you accidentally sin on your way there, you can stop here:Thank you! It's good to know I have somewhere to go in case I'm rejected by the wholesome popcorn eating children of Home Depot.
