I’m just starting to shake off the trauma that was our move so I now feel ready to face the world again. You might think that using the word “trauma” may be a bit overdramatic when describing a move and normally, I’d agree with you but tell me how you would feel after a 15 hour move* at $140/hour…
Anyway. As I was unpacking our bathroom stuff, I came upon a box that had an unusual amount of hair gel bottles. (I may have mentioned this before but I don’t use hair gel, though I probably should; I’m far too lazy. My husband, however, cannot live without hair gel. That’s fine, I’m totally cool with that.) I thought it was odd that he would have so may bottles of hair gel and I wondered if he just bought it in bulk or something. But when I opened the first one, I found it empty. And then the second. And the third. And it kept going…six bottles of empty hair gel. I’ve talked before about how my husband has a very annoying habit of opening new things before he’s finished with the old but this is the first time I’ve stumbled upon this particularly irritating habit of holding onto empty containers for no reason.
I have yet to finish all the unpacking and really, I’m afraid of what I might find. Empty shoe boxes? Cases of pens with no ink left in them? A stash of used up toothpaste tubes? Actually, I think I just figured out why it took the the movers 15 hours.
*For those wondering, this wasn’t a cross-country move. We moved from Connecticut to NYC, which is only an hour away.
