Do you ever look at things every day and not even see them? They become part of the mundane that we don’t really notice until someone else comments on it.
The grey, boring, wonky stationery cupboard at work is like that. I usually just open the cupboard get what is needed and shut the door again but every now and then someone will ask ‘any new pictures?’ We stop and have a look at the inside of the two doors on which are stuck lots of pictures of various members of staff, some in fancy dress, some with ‘celebratities’, some with their children/grandchildren.
It all started with just one photo that got stuck on there for a bit of a laugh and somehow it has snowballed over the years ‘til now, when there’s hardly any space left. Where will it all end I wonder? Will the ‘boss man’ make me take them all down? Will I have to take the old ones down to make way for new ones? Who knows? But for the time being it makes people smile……when they remember to stop and look!
