This is an interesting topic. An everyday item in your house. What’s an everyday item? Something I use everyday or just something I have? Something that everyone has? Something that I use that I’m attached to or proud of? Hmmm….
I think I’ll go with a seasonal everyday item. My incense houses.
I love my little incense houses. My wife gives them to me for christmas. My kids love them. Well… they did when they were smaller. Now they’re teenagers so they don’t like anything.
I get these things out every Christmas and put the little incense cones in there. I love the smoke coming out of the chimney. I picture a fat little old german man and his fat little old german wife sitting there in their cabin. Invariably, the fat little old german woman (known as mama) calls out to her fat little old german husband (who she refers to as papa) and tells him how cold she is. Then papa will start the fire and they’ll warm up. It’s a cozy little farcical day dream.
