Posted:I'm attracted to beauty. I like symmetry. I like when things are perfect.



But sometimes when I'm doing my groceries, I buy dented tins. Not deliberately, but I pick them up (e.g. diced tomatoes) see the dent, and can't bring myself to put it back on the shelf to swop it for a perfect tin.



I start to think something along the lines of "I'm sitting on the shelf watching while all the other tins get snapped up.. nobody wants me."



It's sort of like, if I were going to the dog shelter to adopt a dog, I'd probably end up getting a mongrel puppy with a broken leg just because I felt sorry for it.



But not. Tins aren't alive.. they, as far as I know, don't have feelings.. Dents if anything probably compromise the contents of the tin because the dent could expose raw metal to the food.



Why am I chasing happy endings for supermarket goods.. What the hell is wrong with me?



Oh how tragic.. a dented tin..



What am I doing.

Posted:ahh dented cans..

you know that i agree.

they can't just be left there.. waiting.. watching all the shiny, perfect cans being taken away..

i think it's something within us that we've recognised, 'hey, i'm not perfect'.. then we shouldn't strive to be perfect.. translated into dented can language.. it's ok to not be the smooth shiny can.. as long as we're still appreciated for what's under the label.

I know what you're all saying about knowing that something isn't loved!

My mum has jsut rang me. My step dad works at the local police station, and theres a little jack russle in the pound there that has been handed in. My mum is collecting her tomorrow because she can't stand to see her unloved!
Kadie will have a jack russelly friend to play with! Yay!



Your mum rocks! ubbrollsmile

Lou: mm maybe it's some sort of strange underdog camaraderie? ubbidea I wonder if the cans watch all the shoppers going 'oh oh.. I want that one to pick me.. dented shopper.. ubblove!'

I have a phobia about using toilet paper that has pictures of things with faces on them. I kind of worry about how that cute puppy feels about being shoved in places I can't see.

I've been wondering for a while whose idea it was for toilet paper of all things to have pictures on it. Angels at christmastime...Poor puppy effigies.

Could be that no one had any reading material in the dunny and wanted something to look at?

Although, thinking about it, puppies on toilet paper is quite creepy...

Nothing says "look at me" like a roll of toilet paper hurled at your head...
