Boys and cords

by Andrea Cooley

What is it about boys and their fascination with cords (not the pants, the wires)? I’m not talking about the cords for the computer and TV. I understand those. They are plugged into something. They have a purpose. What I don’t understand are the extra cords. Lots and lots of extra cords. Where do they come from? And more importantly, why can’t we get rid of them?

I know I don’t have a lot of room to talk. I’m the girl who has every issue of Country Home every published, along with 100s of other magazines stashed in crates, under the coffee table and around the house. But at least the magazines have pretty pictures in them. I’m waiting for the day that drawer of random cords come in handy, but Adam promises me they all have a purpose.

  1. We have a cord box. Tom goes through it every few years and gets rid of the out-of-date cords as technology changes quickly. Sometimes we do find a useful cord in there and save ourselves a trip to Radio Shack. Otherwise, Laura taught me that the long telephone cords ( the straight kind that go from the wall to the phone) from before cell phones make the best jump ropes!

  2. We have cords galore too! And they mostly belong to my husband. I try to contain them but there always seems to be one out and about.
