Objects That Come From Nowhere

I’ve noticed that there are certain types of items that I never seem to have to purchase. They just appear. No matter how many of these objects I lose, discard, or give away, there will always be more lying around somewhere.

  • Pens
  • Mugs
  • T-Shirts
  • Mouse Pads

This has to do, I think, with the way in which organizations have a tendency to produce cheap paraphernalia in a vain attempt to render into things tangible, their intangible existence.

  1. I always have to buy new mechanical pencils because they keep disappearing.

    Things on the other side of the globe must be in reverse.

  2. Perhaps there is a bizzaro-world somewhere where the people are constantly in want of mugs, pens, t-shirts and mousepads — but who have a never-ending supply of pants, good tv shows, toilet paper, etc.

  3. The first rule of the mugs is, you don’t talk about the mugs…

    And as for the pens, I’ll have to assume the pens that used to be in my house are now in your house, because we can never find any!

  4. i’ve had a pretty good history of discovering (and subsequently loosing) lighters. just when i loose one, another appears.

  5. Here’s a list of items around my house, that mysteriously seem to just appear out of nowhere: 1) Snoopy Mousepads ; 2) Red Baron Mugs ; 3) Snoopy T-Shirts ; 4) Snoopy Pens

    The only thing I’d really disagree with, is the idea that Snoopy leads an intangible existence! Not to me, he doesn’t.
