This is from a couple of months ago at work. I was in the kitchen getting a tea refill, being careful not to get burnt, when I noticed word magnets on the fridge. These magnets were part of some wedding vows package, you were supposed to make wedding vows with these words. I found the fridge in this state:

all the words

I decided I would play this game. So put arranged a few magnets in this order:

joy us, sad me

One of my co-workers/friends who was caught a glimpse of this came by and said, “that’s some deep shit”. Then she modified it to:

have wife, sad me

So I said, “whoa, wait a minute!”:

have husband, sad me

Laughter ensued. I continued:

work time, sad me

And then:

soul poorer, sad me

“Deep shit”, she said again. I kept going:

we poorer, sad me

“Not bad, but you’re losing steam”… Oh is that right? take this:

marry me, sad we

“Hahahaha”, much laughter again.

Then a few weeks later, I thought I’d give it another go. This time:

Wait… let’s try this:

Okay, what about this:

One more time:

“Hmmm… needs more cowbell”, I thought, forgetting to take the tea back with me to my desk.

  1. 1. you’re insane.

    2. it’s pretty lame that people would use fridge magnets to write wedding vows. Although I am a fan of fridge magnet poetry.

  2. I disagree with Asmaa’s assessment of your sanity. I think this was such a fun post – probably one of my favorites of all your posts – and amusingly creative. Loved the step-by-step photo-documentation of your changing-up of magnets.

    I saw this post the other day, and forgot to comment, and then I remembered it again while I was driving home from somewhere this afternoon, and it made me smile. So thank you, because I really needed that. =)

  3. i was here this morning, and was disconcerted to see your ‘recent comments’ section on the sidebar gone. so i figured you must be fiddling around with the template.

    and now i come back, and it’s all different!
    this is just to say: i LIIIIKE!
