The Boxer Waits - De File
Does Collecting Make You Feel Dirty?
The Boxer Waits
I cooked this afternoon. The garage needed cleaning, but while I was moving boxes I suddenly remembered two in the pantry, Barilla manicotti wedged against the wall on the right side of the first shelf from the bottom, a "gift" from my mother-in-law, who had forgotten how to use them. They've been sitting there since the invasion of Iraq was a tulip poking out through the snow in a right-wing ideologue's eye. It's time to figure out what we still have in store. At least that's what I tell myself as I move the books and papers from one time capsule to the next. If only I could release the tension they hold inside. I can smell the storm coming. It sets the aroma of freshly melted cheese off nicely. "Breathe," I implore. The labor has commenced.

Hmm, did you mean "pantry"? Though I suppose the other is possible....

Now that's an allegory.

Man, you are the Allegorilla.

Re: Now that's an allegory.

i feel a rap coming on. "Smashing similie like a simian, I'm the Allegorilla, prose killa, knockin' out apologues like Michael Jackson on 'Thrilla'."
