I noticed something at your place: a lot of things are missing.
Specifically, where do you keep:
*stuff that is broken and needs fixing?
*the item that is the wrong size, and must be exchanged?
*the sweater you just removed, but might need in five minutes?
*the glass/plate/spoon someone just used?
*that package that needs to get to UPS ASAP?
*the referral slip to take the kid to the orthodontist?
*the papers that need to be filled out and returned to school with your kid tomorrow?
*the empty bottle of Advil/detergent/deodorant/milk that is on the counter to remind you to buy more?
*your kid’s diorama project that is half-finished and due on Friday?
*the laundry that is clean and waiting to be folded?
*the dishes that are clean and sitting in the rack?
*the dish rack!
*the clothes that are waiting to go to the cleaners?
*the clothes that are too small for your kid, but might fit your friend’s kid–and you’re not sure when you’ll see them next?
*the items that someone left at your house last weekend?
*the gigantic art projects your kids bring home and want to display?
*the clothes that need a button/patch/hem job?
*the gift certificate that you have to remember to use before it expires?
*the library books that you meant to return yesterday?
Seriously, where do you put all of this stuff? The toaster? The coffee maker? Why is there nothing on your counter or in the hall or on the stairs? Why–when I open your coat closet to hang up my coat–does nothing attack me?
