Look both ways.
Always wear a lifejacket.
Look before you leap.
Close the lid before flushing.
Life is full of safety precautions. Which is a good thing, or we'd all plunge ahead without thinking of consequences.
But Today's Small Thing flies in the face of common sense and caution. Today, we are going to play with matches.
Oh, yeah, burn baby!
No, not THOSE kinds of matches, silly! Sorry, all you pyros who got your hopes up. This is not your day.
I'm talking about "making matches" of things that get separated. mixed up, or find themselves alone in a world of couples and groups.
The easy things are socks...and many of them got rounded up last week in our roundup of strays.
But there are many sets of things that may have become unmatched in your home.
- Salt and Pepper shakers
- Eye glasses and cases
- Earrings and necklaces
- Tops and bottoms of an outfit
- Shoes (duh, Rachel)
- Towel sets
- Sheet sets
- Book sets
- Hair products
- Hair accessories
- Cups with lids
- Storage containers
- Toys with pieces
- Cordless phones and bases
Wow! I'm even surprising myself with the number of "sets" of things that could be matched up today. Can you add to my list?
Today's Small Thing is to play with matches. Make as many complete sets of things as you can....out of things that have become disorganized or separated. Simply organize, put things together, or match things up.
