In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “Wronged Objects”
If your furniture, appliances, and other inanimate objects at home had feelings and emotions, to which item would you owe the biggest apology?
My bedside table is my best friend as well as my “bete-noir ” I need a lot of stuff on it – from my mobiles and land line phone to my current book , water, alarm, statues of my favorite gods, a notepad and pen – I want them all within “arm reach”. Add to that a pile of my favorite books, my laptop and charger and I realize my bedside table takes a lot from me. I have given it a couple assistants (read extensions) but manage to crowd them as well!
So I guess if I want to remain best friends forever, I owe it an apology for always cluttering its surface so much…. yet I can not think of life without my bedside locker / table – my lifeline as I settle into my favorite corner in the house… my side of the bed!
My sincere apology – looking forward to a lifetime of togetherness!
