Ants in My Drawers

Our Compact Edition of the OED doesn’t get much use these days, but Mary needed a magnifier for a class on quilt judging and the OED has one that seemed just about right:

The magnifier comes in a removable box fitted neatly into the drawer, revealing a surprise underneath:

It’s a plastic ant from a bag in the Kiddie Surplus box my Shop Assistant grew up with and a pleasant reminder of long-ago days, carefully placed where only I’d ever see it.

Of course, it’s still there …

    Better to have ants in your drawers than bats in your belfry.
