For twenty-five years I kept a honey swirler in a kitchen drawer. It never got used in all those years. It was time to give it away and so I did. I consume a lot of honey but had never made use of this particular item and had no intention of ever doing so.
Not long after the honey swirler went the way of the donation bin, Mother’s Day arrived. I received a lovely gift basket made up of several delicious edibles including a jar of fresh honey accompanied by…you guessed it…a honey swirler.
Of course, I couldn’t say that I had just parted with one of these gadgets and so I had to take it.
It is now in the same spot in the same drawer and will probably be there for the next twenty-five years.
