I don't know why, but I have "dispensers" on my mind.
Odd. But sometimes words just pop into my head and I can't shake them.
Dispenser. Dispense. Dispensing. Dispensation. Indispensable.
It's kinda fun to say, the way it rolls off your tongue.
I got to thinking about all the items that dispense things in our home, and was dazzled by the variety.
- Paper towel dispenser
- Toilet Paper dispenser
- Soap dispenser
- Diaper dispenser
- Tissue dispenser
- Ice dispenser
- Water dispenser
- Lotion dispenser
- Air Fragrance dispenser
- Wipe dispenser
Each doling out proper amounts of the dispensed thing, time after time, day after day.
If I were to guess, I'd say that the Toilet Paper Dispenser is the least appreciated, and perhaps the most underrated dealer of the whole lot.
Have you taken a look at your army of dispensers lately? There they stand, ready to serve unselfishly and without personal glory or fame. They are merely the supporting cast, presenting the true stars of the show for their moments in the limelight.
"Off with ye, now! Ye wee squirts of liquid soap! Don't be lookin' back!" (Said in Irish brogue)
My soap dispensers by the sinks look a bit gooey. My lotion dispenser is clogged. I DID clean my fabric softener dispenser in the wash machine recently, for which I am proud.
POINTS: 50 for dispensing some elbow grease on the most overlooked, but important members of the household management team.
Can you think of other dispensers you might have?
