Curse of the Deformed Towel

towelsEf this towel in particular. This towel is like a boomerang in a cartoon. I just couldn’t get rid of it, without it turning up and smacking me in the face again.

I may have seriously broken up with a guy because he pulled this towel out of the garbage.

I don’t know for certain what happened to this towel. I purchased it at the same time as all of our other towels, but it’s now been floating around my house in it’s deformed state for several years. I avoid it at all costs, and usually grab it when I’m using a saw, painting, or need to throw one on the floor.

This towel is the ultimate example of a Feng Shui block. I’ve tried to remove it multiple times and it always ricocheted back at me somehow. It’s not functional, it annoys me, and it’s a pain to use.

Time for Replacements!

I took a different approach this time to get rid of it. I replaced all of our towels. Some were blue, and we’d had them for *at least* 8 years. Some were brown and we’ve had them for at least five years. When I bought those towels, we only had one bathroom. Now we have three and quite often we would be scrounging around for a towel depending on which bathroom we were in, because there weren’t enough to go around.

I decided to go to Target and buy new bath sheets, and happened to catch them 15% off as well. I’ve removed all the blue towels, the brown deformed one, and put the remaining brown towels, in good shape, in my daughter’s bathroom for extras.

Do you have this problem in  your house? (Oh gosh, don’t get me started on the oven mitt I caught on fire, and then continued to use half of for way too long!)
