OK, here's the deal. I am a word person. So, I won't always be able to use the word "less." There are times I will simply have to go with "fewer."
And, today, I have fewer twist ties in my silverware drawer. I got the photo from the Bedford Industries site -- they make twist ties, and I'm sure they're wonderful. I have apparently kept Bedford and other companies like it in business, because I had approximately 90 million twist ties in the drawer. And I could have sworn I tossed them out not that long ago. Oh well. It's that maintenance thing ...
Anyway, today -- and the day is young -- I have much less of a mess in my silverware drawer. The silverware trays are washed and lovely, everything is sorted. It's fun to just open the drawer and stare at the happy spooning and forking.
I'm easily pleased. Or, maybe I'm just twisted. :-)
