I will never understand this mystery.
You roll up headphones, wrap them around ipod, and lay them gently into your purse. Pull them out an hour later and they are in knots.
How does this happen? Literally, I put my headphones in my purse before work. At work, my purse hung on a wall rack all afternoon. I went to get them on my lunch break, and it took me nearly my whole break to untangle them.
Same thing with Christmas lights. They sit in the attic ALL YEAR! What happens between the time you roll them up into a nice little bundle, and the time you are cursing at them the following year. I'm very curious. Do mice climb into the box and twist up all the wires? Does the invisible headphone fairy steal my earbuds for hours at a time and replace them in a fashion less satisfying than she found them in.
I want to put hidden cameras in my purse and in the Christmas boxes. This mystery must be solved. Unite againts the earbud fairies. It's time we won this war.
