10 Things We Have in Common
With craziness going on politically and myriad things wriggling their way between us lately, I took some time to ruminate on all the simple ways we are alike rather than different. In an effort to provide proof that we have more in common than not, I’m going out on a limb to name ten things I’m betting most folks can lay claim to. Here they are, in no particular order:
1 – Junk drawer, that mainstay of kitchens everywhere. You rummage around in there at your own peril, fearful of losing a limb.
2 – Plastic grocery bags inside other plastic grocery bags. I believe this is the American equivalent of Russian nesting dolls.
3 – Refrigerator magnets and their accompanying stuff—photos, lists, and expired coupons. Yes, that’s right. Expired. Coupons.
4 – Flashlights with dead batteries . . . kept within easy reach so we can curse during a power outage and then hunt for candles and matches.
5 – Multiple remote controls, at least one of which belongs to a piece of equipment you no longer own.
6 – Old movies in VCR/beta format or old cassette tapes, all of which you keep stored in a safe place, even though you know they’ll never be used again.
7 – Overstocked spice cabinet, usually a mess . . . unless you’re my hubster. He alphabetizes that stuff!
8 – Socks without mates. One is the loneliest number, buttercup. 🙁 So sad. This is why I write romance, people. Even socks need hope.
9 – Out-of-date dictionaries and/or encyclopedias that do not include words like megabyte or nanotechnology. We keep them. Because they smell good.
10 – Fat pants, for when we’re a little too big for our britches. Don’t even pretend you don’t own a pair.
