Have you ever had one of those days
where the smallest thing annoys the heck out of you?
Well, I'm having one of those days.

One of our deckhands, has anointed himself
King of the Galley
and honestly, he does a really good job of organizing things.

This morning when I was getting some coffee,
I heard him "heavy sighing" in the pantry,
like someone just wrecked his car or something.
What he was doing was
stocking and restocking and reorganizing the shelves.

It seems, someone had the nerve
to take the little honey bear out of it's designated spot (me)

and put the little honey bear
with the syrup!

He went on at length
on why things are the way they are in the pantry
and bla-bla-bla-bla......
as if keeping the condiments in order
was crucial to keeping the boat afloat.

It was then
that I realized what my mission for the day
was going to be.

Mr. salad dressing all in a row........

meet Mr. king size ketchup bottles.

Within hours
of me playing mix and match in the pantry
he had everything back as it should be.

Everything in its place
and a place for everything.


I'm going to mess with his hats!

LOL... living on a boat for so much time together, you must really get on each other's last nerve now and then. Personally, my condiments are all over the place.

Perfect... When you mess with the hats, you're paying attention... and that's a comfortable thing, a reassuring thing. Don't stop.

Good for you. I do like things put away in the general area, but in a row and categorized - my goodness.
