After the … interesting … half time of the Superbowl yesterday, Kamel began work on a piece of lovely do-it-yourself furniture from Target. I was in charge of handing over the screws and nails when called for. It’s not that I can’t put together my own furniture, it’s just that now that I have a buddy – I don’t have to! Perks!
As he was hammering tiny baby nails into the cardboard backing our downstairs neighbors started banging on their ceiling. The universal sign for passive-aggressively saying “you’re being too loud”. I was equal parts embarrassed and pissed because… what the fuck? It’s 630 on a Sunday during the Superbowl, it took less than 10min and I’m pretty sure I wasn’t interrupting anybody’s nap. I briefly considered walking downstairs and apologizing face to face, explaining the situation and hoping they peed their pants a little with the real life confrontation.
Anyway – the real point of this post is the creation of this:
A shoe holder!! I would have shown you a before picture… but it was too mortifying how much dust and shenanigans had gathered around my shoes and begun a very compelling uprising. It was mayhem. (Parallel between my shoes and Egypt may possibly be in bad taste, but it sure does paint a picture, doesn’t it?) But now they have a home! Where they can come and go freely, and the floor of my apartment can be that much more free of clutter. Hooray small victories!
Do you have shoes that need storing? Are you tired of those stupid contraptions you hang off of your bedroom door with all of those shoe pockets? Do you lack ample closet space? You too can own a do-it-yourself shoe box from Target. You no longer have to get up every morning and trip all over your footwear. There is hope.
