Missing something.


Do you think I need a new dustpan? Do you?

What possessed my husband to run over/step on/throw/smash (who really knows what happened out in the garage that night) my $3 dustpan? What might be the momentus events leading up to such destruction? Did this have to happen?

And the biggest question. Who leaves a smashed up dustpan leaning respectfully against the cement wall of the garage without-a-mention of it's demise? WHO? Just leaning there next to it's broom whistlin' dixie like nothing in the world is wrong.

So now I'm using this dustpan as is. Yes, I buy $10 per block mozzarella cheese but I don't take the time to replace my dustpan. That I use EVERY SINGLE DAY.

It's just the way my mind works (or doesn't).

But seriously, WHO? and WHY?

I love how you always make common, everyday things into exciting stories. And, the $10 mozzarella / $3 dustpan sounds like my apartment. I bought a bunch of ingredients to make salsa but didn't even have a cutting board so I used an extra microwave tray. Why don't I just buy a cutting board that I would use all the time? But who cares...not me...well, until I make salsa again. ;-)

It's because we want to eat the $10 mozzarella and the dustpan is boring and non-edible. At least that's what it is for me. I do things like this on a regular basis.

Oh the rudeness! :0)

What you need is a dust buster. Sure they aren't $3, but they are fantastic, esp if you are using your dustpan everyday. Makes those quick clean-ups, even quicker! (can you imagine!)

Have a great day!

Sarah. Gideon and I have been sitting here for the past five minutes feeling like we are on an acid trip. Your picture has totally tripped us out. I thought the black thing was the dust pan with a whole in the middle. Gideon saw it for what it truly is. But still...what the heck?! We don't quite see it.
