Several of the magnets are not holding anything, however. She uses those in a random rotation to signal that the dishes in the dishwasher are clean. Really! 😉
When she turns on the dishwasher – she sticks a magnet on the closed door. After she puts away the clean dishes – she removes the magnet and places it back on the refrigerator. This is not a foolproof system. Sometimes she forgets to put one on… or even worse – take one off. Then, it’s anybody’s guess if the dishes are clean or dirty.
Two years ago, she found this cute little fella on display at a kitchen store.
“How kitchen-y and cute!” she thought. She had to have him.
Now, seriously, wouldn’t you think that in two years of using him that she would have noticed he’s not just a magnet?
One day, as she was returning him to the fridge, she saw something on the bottom. “Huh? What’s this?” she wondered.
Well, it turned out to be . . . A tape measure!
And how does the tape measure rewind? You push his nose.
The absent-minded professor has nothing on Crystal.
Poor girl! Sometimes it seems as if she’s one sandwich short of a picnic. 😉
