Suicide by housework.

Remember that huge old desk I talked about. The one with miles of paper and books which are now in a big box waiting to be sorted.

I moved it today.

I remembered to take the drawers out but forgot to write on the side which order they went back in. Half an hour of my life I won't get back. Take it from me, in old desks, drawers must go in order.

I slid the computer across to its new home and realized I'd boxed in the table it had been sitting on. Wonderwoman hits her stride again and lifts the table over the computer, desk and misses the ceiling light in one smooth movement. Wonderwoman then took a little rest flat on the bed for 20 minutes.

I have so much space. The desk has two slidey things to pull out to rest drinks and food so it doesn't fall in the keyboard.

I've still got to change the contents of the drawers which means *gasp* throwing things out that I haven't used for years.

Did I mention the huge space. It's really big. I've got agoraphobia.

"I moved it today."

The desk moved for you too?

Me too. Soon as I dropped my drawers.

Rumour has it that you have a quick drop fly drawer.

"I've still got to change the contents of the drawers."

Sedgwick suffers from the same problem. There are now whole tribes of barking bullfrogs that evolved around his nether regions.

Thank you Brian 'Attenborough' Hughes for the formal identification of the contents of M'Lord's drawers. Another of life's mysteries solved by scholarly investigation.

I saw a documentary about them. It was called 'Life in Sedgwick's Boxers', although frankly the word 'life' was a bit optimistic.

JahTeh said...

You're right on the ball, any life there would be a boxer rebellion.
