Secret life of wires

Inanimate objects are not as an inanimate as one might think. Everyone knows hangers mate, try pulling out just one wire hanger and you’ll almost always get two or three, sort of a hanger daisy chain, I guess. But now I have caught cables in the act of mating.

Go ahead, look behind the computer or the stereo, anywhere there are wires. Laid them down carefully in straight lines so there’d be no tangling, right? Check back a few months later and notice how they are all twisted in the act of making more wires.

It takes hours to separate the tangled of wires deep in the throes of plastic coated copper core lust, and there’s always one or two wires that aren’t connected to anything, just lying there amongst the rest of the cables – the secret of where those came from should now be apparent.

There’s nothing that can be done about this problem. The tape, commercial wire organizers, as Dr. Ian Malcolm said in Jurassic park, “Life will find a way,” but the lysine option won’t work with wires.

So just as I suspected, these objects are alive!

So that is why they are always getting tangled ... who would have thought they were in the throes of plastic passion? xoxo ♡
