I’m a problem solver.
Often, though, I’m solving problems created by me.
While decluttering my closet last week, I ran across an example of my resourcefulness. A familiar example.
I’ve had many versions of this handy-dandy homemade tool over the years.
It’s a hook. A hook made out of a wire hanger.
To get something off of a shelf in the closet when I can’t actually get into the closet because the floor is covered in stuff.
I untwist the top of the hanger, straighten it out, and hold onto the doorframe while standing on one foot and leaning in to reach that blonde wig (or whatever) on the top shelf.
Rarely does it take only one try to get it.
Rarely does only the item I need come falling to the ground.
I am resourceful.
We’ll call it that.--Nony
