the fruit bowl

i'm not sure what this says about me, but this is my fruit bowl.

i took an inventory:

11 writing utensils, a nail file, cell phone charger, 2 nail clippers, 2 safety pins (one large, one small), 2 nail polishes, a handdrawn birthday card for meg, 2 random ointments, 11 ponytails elastics, a pencil sharpener, an eraser, 4 guitar pics, 1 barette, and one unglued pencil topper (optimistically awaiting repair). zero fruits.


i am vaguely ashamed. :)

I used to use my fruit bowl for fruit back when I lived with Heather Doss. Be sure to ask Heather about the time she came home from work and found me--standing in the middle of our kitchen sucking fruit flies out of the air with our vacuum attachment.

Bottom line--fruit baskets may be better employed holding something other than fruit. Also, do not keep your fruit basket containing fruit on top of the refrigerator. It is warm there, and you might forget about it.

I think it means you have enough interior fruitiness to not need actual fruit in the bowl. Or it means you have enough life around you to make the keeping of fruit impossible. Or at worst, it means that the cat ate your plastic fruit. GRIN

contents of our fruit bowl: an (empty!) pack of gum, 2 pens, a roll of masking tape for labeling Natalie's bottles, a random Chinese good luck charm, 2 Sharpie markers, a pair of scissors

Perhaps we should just rename the bowl. :-)
