Secret Subject Swap

Secret Subject Swap

Welcome to Take One of February’s Secret Subject Swap. This week, 15 brave bloggers picked a secret subject for someone else and were assigned a secret subject to interpret in their own style. Today we are all simultaneously divulging our topics and submitting our posts.

My “Secret Subject” is:

Describe what we would find in your junk drawer/cabinet/closet….

It was submitted by: http://mybrainonkids.net/

Ok, now the formalities are out of the way, this is my first secret subject swap, so be nice, I’m a little nervous…. but imagine my joy when I got this subject. I almost did a little dance…….

I have an awesome ‘junk’ drawer…. although I prefer to call it ‘utilities drawer’ thank you very much!….. Yeah that’s crap too… it’s really just known as the second drawer…

Where's the bottle opener?

Where’s the bottle opener?

‘How can so much stuff fit into such a tiny space?’

‘And how the hell do you find anything?’

‘I hate this damn drawer….Grrr’

These words come out of the King’s mouth at surprisingly regular intervals. He HATES this drawer and tries to throw things away all the time…

It gets stuck, things get caught on the top edge and you can’t open it. All I can do is shake it and rattle the drawer, because the long skewer things you use to push the stuck things down are INSIDE the stuck drawer.

This is NOT a drawer for the faint hearted.

Hold on ... I'm going in!

Hold on … I’m going in!

 

But believe me when I tell you I can make anything with it…I’m like the McGyver of the kitchen drawer world. There’s tape and wire and chopstick and rubber stoppers and glasses screws….Miss Gremlin could make a working robot with that shit…

You want it? I got it...

You want it? I got it…

There’s so many sharp things in this drawer that if I ever get attacked by zombies in the kitchen I’m going there instead of the knife block… Everyone knows you can’t kill zombies with knives… Actually I have no idea, I don’t know anything about zombies but I’m hoping a coffee thermometer to the eye socket will do the trick.

So there it is, that’s my drawer. I’m covered if I need a robot built or to defend myself against zombies…. Can’t find the fucking bottle opener though……. Screw top anyone?

  1. You did a great job on your first “swap.” The king in my house does the EXACT same thing…the junk drawer drives him crazy! I’ve organized it maybe 2 times and guess what happens, it looks all messy and disorganized a week later. Junk drawers are supposed to be a mess!

  2. Welcome!!! I’m so happy you are joining us and even more excited you got my prompt! My husband got fed up this weekend and cleaned our junk drawer out for the 5,431,200th time. I’m nervous to look, because I’m quite positive he threw out something important. Hopefully, he kept the duct tape in there because we have to use it to run the dishwasher. Oh, my glamorous life… And smash the brain in or cut off the head…I’m reading World War Z so I know these things now 🙂

  3. Really, my junk drawer needs to be tossed. I don’t even think I have anything redeeming in it. I think toothpicks are the most dangerous items, which I’m sure will break if I was ever in a tight situation.

    Great post!

  4. Last weekend we hosted a big party and as I’m rushing around the DAY OF the party my husband proudly showed me his accomplishment. He had cleaned the junk drawer. LOL

  5. You could invite a self proclaimed OCD friend over for lunch and a sort through!
    Practical intervention for the “junk drawer”, place a box on the counter, nearby the drawer. During the next two weeks place any item that you use into the box. At the end of two weeks, longer for those of you who may be very attached and concerned about what may be at the bottom of the drawer, dump the remaining items in a donation bag. Clean out the drawer, line with that rubber, drawer liner stuff ( packaged by the roll at your local Dollar store ). If you are really into this project, head to TJ Maxx, Marshall’s or your local kitchen supply store and purchase one of those bamboo or adjustable metal dividers. Remove the items from the box and organize them in your new “utility” drawer! Be sure to keep the coffee thermometer or skewers near the front in case of a Zombie attack. I think that you can get a much better grip and keep a safer distance with the skewer!
