23. & 24.

23.  Your shoes:



I don't care that they're ridiculous looking and "technically" don't "match" anything I own.  They were $7 and I love them.  And since I'm sure you can't tell, they're covered in hot pink antelope.


24. Inside your bathroom cabinet:


Nothing really interesting to see.  But do you know what that little slot inside of old medicine cabinets is for? If you live in an old house I bet there's one in your medicine cabinet as well.  I never knew what they were for until my brother Ben was tearing out a bathroom in an old house.  When he tore the walls out he found hundreds and hundreds of RAZOR BLADES.  How sick is that?  They made little slots in cabinets with the sole purpose of dropping used razor blades in them.  It makes me shudder to think that inside the walls of my bathroom are piles and piles of old, rusty razor blades.  And who knows what else?  Blegh.  It takes a lot to gross me out, and that grosses me out.

(p.s. you know what else grosses me out? I took apart and cleaned out my dishwasher today.  I don't want to talk about it.)

jon wants you to open up the wall behind your cabinet now because he doesn't believe that's what it was for. his reasoning "it would have filled up eventually and then what would you do?"

We had one of those in Cheyenne and I ended up covering up the whole with tape because I swear our neighbors cigarette smoke came through it! But that is disgusting that old razor blades are in there!
