Humpty Dumpty

I keep my ever-expanding collection of mismatched tupperware in the press above the kitchen fan. It's too awkward a space to store anything else; so I pile them all in haphazardly, paying no heed to matching like with like or lids with anything. Badly stacked tubs teeter threateningly every time I get up on my tip-toes to rummage and more often than not the whole lot come crashing down on me, smacking me in my upturned, optimistic face. It hurts and I get angry that it's happened again. Then the sting vanishes because it is, after all, only plastic, so I get over my strop and pick all of the shite up off the floor, reconstruct the previous chaos and hold it all in with one hand while I close the door on it with the other.

I think it may be a metaphor for something.

Sounds like all of my cupboards. And my wardrobe. And my desk drawers. Last time I opened my desk drawer at work, optimistically thinking I'd chucked a box of paracetamol in there at some point, a ruler boinged up and smacked me on the fingers. Haven't opened them since...

a metaphore for the political turmoil in Eastern Sudan? used car salesmen? the plight of fat people on escalators in public spaces that just aren't strong enough and everyones watching and they feel really embarrassed because everyone thinks they're too fat for the escalator which is really really fat and its starts squeaking and the man has to come fix it and and....stuff?

Jayne, how are you not living in a state of constant fear?

Rua, it may well be a metaphor for all of those things but as usual i was thinking only of myself.

I wish I could say I didn't recognise the situation, but unfortunately I know it only too well *sigh*

Anyway, had to just check out your blog, having seen it so highly recommended on Radgery :-)

Jayne, how are you not living in a state of constant fear?

Oh I am. But am too lazy to do anything about it. Plus an undercurrent of mild terror spices up my otherwise mundane world...

Sounds kind of like a punishment the Greek gods would hand out. You haven't noticed yourself doing it over and over again for all eternity or anything like that, have you?

Alternatively, Kafka may have taken to narrating your life.

Conan Drumm said...

Tell me, do you stack them inside each other and arrange the lids separately? Or not?

Rosie said...

yes, Dot, Radge has finally noticed me after my months of silently lurking on his blog.

i meant to use my tupperware collection as an analogy for the way i approch my relationships (and there's a statement that seems odd, even for me) so i expect the situation may be familiar to a lot of people.

laziness and spice, Jayne. my kind of girl.

i've noticed myself doing it every time i open that press, EM, if that counts. can i blame Kafka, do you think?

Conan, i do not. in fact i should not have used the word "stacked" because that implies that there is some deliberate order to it. they're just heaped in on top of one another, lidless and mismatched.

Sounds like a case for a wee prayer to the goddess Anoia. Not precisely her field, but close enough.

emordino said...

Everyone can blame Kafka. For everything.

("One morning, as Rosie was waking up from anxious dreams, some tupperware fell on her.")

Rosie said...

i never dug deep into the discworld stuff, Primal, despite it being the kind of thing i'd probably like.

how did you know about the nightmares, EM? has someone been talking?
