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. ….”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”…I was laughing so hard at this babe. Thanks for being brave and sharing what’s in your junk drawer. I don’t really have a junk drawer, but I have junk baskets all over.

  2. Ok, coffee thermometer in the eye socket – hilarious! But, I can’t stop wondering why you need a thermometer for coffee? Don’t you just drink it and then either let it cool for a few minutes or heat it up?

      OH NO! I am a hard core coffee Lady over here. That is to get the frothed milk temp right for the perfect latte, you don’t know this? I’m not sure I can associate with you until you get on the same coffee page…. not sure, not sure (shaking head) not sure…frown.

  3. Thermometer in the eye socket would work wonderfully. You have to “kill the brain to kill the ghoul”. You got this. There’s enough sharp objects in there to stab with. However, do you really want to get that close and risk being bitten? *shakes head* You need lessons before I team up with you for the Zombie Apocalypse.

  4. What scares me is just how much thought you’ve given to just how much damage you could do with the contents of that drawer. I think you need to come to my house and make suggestions as to what I’m missing in MY junk drawer.

  5. I see your site has a new look too! How fun! My drawer still looks a million times worse than yours! I loved the part about killing a zombie or building a robot…you just never know what life will throw at you next! Junk drawers are the ULTIMATE safety net for that!!!

  6. First of all, great job on your first swap! Second, thank GOD you have a junk drawer too. I’m a bit jealous of the dividers, because essentially, that gives you three places to have junk! Love your McGyver comment. BTW, the large part of your shears can double as a bottle opener. Cheers!

  7. Got a blow torch in that drawer? That would kill off the zombies. A machete works as well. Excellent for a first- time Swap post. You are no longer a virgin in the SSS and I hope to see you in the upcoming ones!

  8. Wow … that is possibly the neatest junk drawer that I’ve ever seen. 🙂 I personally think that the manufacturers of “stuff” and the cabinet makers should get together to make drawers that are much more utilitarian. I mean … what’s one to do with those larger items? Lovely, fun post … thanks for sharing your drawer with us!

  9. Definitely a lively junk drawer…or actually, I guess that would be a ‘deadly’ junk drawer! I have to admit, it’s certainly neater than mine. Love the idea of the swap! So glad you linked up with the GtKY hop!
