The drawer I hate


so I'm looking for the one whisk that I use about seven hundred times a day and i'm pretty sure i put it in this drawer 'cause i always always put it in this drawer. this is the drawer it goes in unless the goat put it in the other drawer (which is exactly like this drawer, but the whisk DOES NOT GO in that drawer. the whisk goes in this drawer that i hate on account of never being able to find anything in it ever sorta like say RIGHT EFFING NOW). and now i can't find my favorite whisk (probably on account of the goat who probably put it in the wrong drawer) and i need the whisk immediately if not sooner as the bacon is nearly done and i haven't beat the effing eggs yet and now i'm doing a seriously violent rifle through the drawer dropping shit and saying, "where the eff is the effing whisk" loud--way too loud as my kid is sitting at the kitchen table playing her nintendo.

"eff eff eff!" lilts my kid.

i exhale a big huff the give the drawer a violent shake only to see that the whisk is (of course) right in front of my face where it's been the whole time.

I have two of those drawers. Perhaps you could help us organize them.

*pause*

Ever since we moved to our condo, we've had a drawer like that in the kitchen.

I hate that drawer!

Although it may be in the 'other' drawer, and perhaps I just can't quite make it out, but ... From what I can tell, you need a garlic press.

I'm sorry if this seems incredibly insensitive, given the current problem you have finding whisks, but I had to say it.

Also a fork (perhaps with a shallow bowl) might work if you are faced with a missing whisk again someday. Whisks are wily, but vain. If you show them you don't actually need them (even if you do) they'll be more likely to turn up.

whoa it appears as tho you have several whisks. i have always wondered what makes different whisks different from one another. are they used for different foods? do people just prefer differnet shapes? i need to know these things.

murl.the.squirrel said...

ha differnet.

Does this post have any sort of tie-in with the PSA post below it? I'd like to think it does...

Rule #1: it's always in the OTHER drawer.

Rule #2: no matter which drawer you're looking at.

PS this is one way that I know that the sxKitten and I are compatible: we almost always put the same things in the same tumbled mess drawers. It is only when the sxKitten's mother is here that things go awry.

sxKitten said...

Except scissors - Dean & I have different views on the appropriate drawer placement of scissors. My mother is definitely a problem, though - she puts whisks in the cutlery drawer! Which gets the forks all agitated,and the spoons sulk.

I just went through my drawers.
They needed to be dry cleaned.
Years of neglect ya know.
Seriously. I found 4 whisks, two rolling pins, two hand mixers, four meat thermometers, 3 garlic presses, and a box of condoms.

A flickr photo showing notes that point to Whisks of note. Scroll over the pic to see notes.

I am dumb.

Hey gorgeous! Give me a call and I'll come over and sort out your drawers.

It's what I do.

Oh yeah, every drawer in my house is like that. And nothing ever is where I left it, no matter what the geniuses of the world say . . .

I prefer this drawer, btw, to the altered bosoms.

The spoon sulks. The can o' beans droops. The conch shell laments. The painted stick drags. The dirty sock languishes. Dang, it's time for me to read Skinny Legs And All again!

Thanks for the pic, I knew that Spatula piece had some universal application.
