Brief, Surreal, and Pointless Update
Posted 28 January 2009 in Life, the Universe, and Everything by Catriona
I’m still working on the corrections (but I think I’ve managed to make the weakest section work with the whole argument now, so I’m happy), but I do want to mention something odd.
I have a fabulous pair of tweezers. That’s not odd in and of itself, of course. Everyone needs a good pair of tweezers.
I also have an inadequate pair of tweezers, which I’ve never bothered throwing out.
I noticed this morning that my fabulous tweezers have disappeared from their accustomed place on the bathroom shelf. That’s also not that odd: tweezers have a tendency to wander around the house and bathroom.
But in their place is a pair of tweezers I’ve never seen before in my life.
Now, that is odd. Nick, surely, is not the type to buy a new pair of tweezers. So where did this new pair come from? Why do I now have two pairs of inadequate tweezers instead of one inadequate and one fabulous pair?
Why is life so frequently surreal?
Or do I simply need to sleep more, get out in the fresh air occasionally, and stop drinking so much coffee?
(And find my tweezers.)
