Why do I do things like this? My flat flower head pins are in a little plastic container which is kept by the longarm. It’s been by my longarm forever because I so rarely use those pins for anything but the longarm. About six months ago, the container of pins ended up on the floor by my desktop computer. Honest to goodness . . I have stepped on that plastic container, flipped it and sent pins flying in all directions at least a dozen time, probably closer to two dozen times. Each time, I calmly and methodically pick up all the pins, get the magnet to make sure no pins have escaped because Chad or Vince will step on them and I’ll never hear the end of it.
Why do I pick them all up, put them back in the container and leave them on the floor . . where I never use them and where I continue to spill them?
Yesterday, I again stepped on that container and spilled all the pins.
I calmly and methodically picked every one of them up again.
But this time . . I did not put them back on the floor. I put them back near the longarm where I cannot step on them and I am likely not to spill them.
Why didn’t I pick the pins up the very first time I spilled them and put them back by the longarm? Better yet, why were they ever on the floor to start with? Do you do things like this?
