The Lavender Tool Box
Some years ago, we found a functional and quite lavender toolbox complete with lavender tools at one of the big hardware stores.
“Look dear,” I laughed, “I can have my own set of tools and I will never have to worry about you or the boys taking them!”
He thought it was a good idea too. Yesterday, I went to get my screwdriver which is super-handy; its bit is reversible to Phillips or standard. It wasn’t there. Grrrr. I looked in all of the usual places, the junk drawer, the ongoing, bath remodel chaos room and finally my husband’s tool area in the garage. Nada.
It turns out lavender is no repellent to men that need a tool, especially when they don’t feel like walking out to the garage or shop. Over the years, not only has my husband used all of the lavender tools more often than me, he has filled the lavender toolbox with all kinds of
junk tools, some of which I have no clue as to their purpose.
If you know of a way of keeping your tools to yourself that actually works, please let me know.
