Combs and Things

 A while ago, I received a set of Chinese combs as a gift.  For the first few months, I kept one comb in my pocket everyday so I always had it with me and I always knew where it was.  Then one day I was in a big hurry to wash my clothes because it was so late and I was sleepy, and I forgot it was in my pants pocket.  I realized very quickly when I went to bed that it was missing because I always put it back into the green box every night.  I thought that I probably put it in my drawer with my wallet and car keys and so I thought that it was safe, so I did not look for it.  In the morning, I woke up late when I pulled my clothes out of the dryer I found the comb.  I was very happy that I found the comb and did not think about much else.  Then I realized that all of the colors on the comb were washed off.  I can’t believe I made such a big mistake so easily! So from then on, I decided it is a much better idea to put the combs in strategic locations rather than keep them in my pants pocket all of the time.  So I put one comb in my car, one comb in the drawer in my desk at work and I keep two combs in the green box. That way, they will always be there when I need them and I won’t risk accidently washing them.   They really are such beautiful combs; most people have not seen anything like them.  Everything these days is made out of plastic, so it is very exotic to have a wooden comb. It is especially exotic to have wooden combs with beautiful Chinese women on them. Hehe. I try so hard to take good care of them, but after so many months of use the colors are not as bright as they used to be.
