They are a jumbled mess. One entwines itself with reckless abandonment around the others. It's as if they are alive like a bundle of garter snakes behind the woodpile.
At first as I opened the box of orphan cords and cables, I thought I'd put it aside and deal with it later. Like so much in my life I've fallen into this modus operandi.
And yet this time, I tackled the problem and unraveled telephone wires, computer cables and cords to God only knows what. It took time and patience, and after I had completed the task, I ended up throwing nearly all away.
Life is like this sometimes. What we hang onto long after its usefulness is exhausted--how strange!
