No Progress Whatsoever
Hat tip to The Lioness.
There has been a lot of activity here at SavtaDotty Central, and some rearranging, but absolutely no progress whatsoever. Entropy wins. I'm hoping that by posting a picture I will shame myself into making the machsan (storage room) into a "Before" and "After" project, but I'm afraid my life has got stalled in the "Before" stage.
Q: What kind of a person keeps a broken fax machine that someone gave her, for nothing, in working condition twelve years ago, which is too old and too heavy (now that she is carless and elderly) to take to the repair shop but for which she still has a huge box full of rolls of not-yet-used disappearing ink paper?
A: The same kind of person who saves an 18-year-old Panasonic telephone with a defective connector in the hopes that giving it a rest in the machsan will cause another magical recuperation as happened once before.
And the clothes! SavtaDotty is waiting for them to decide whether they need to be a) hung up, b) repaired and then hung up, c) given away (to whom?), d) thrown away (on the bench outside, where nighttime scavengers make them disappear within hours).
