Maybe it’s true…


The theory that certain inanimate objects hate humans.

I think there is some truth in this theory.
I believe alarm clocks can be hateful.
And I think some cars hate their owners. Maybe some rightly so.
I had a chair that hated me. Every time I sat in it I got a backache.
I put it out on the street. It got rained on then went to the dump.
old chairI sometimes have nightmares that it will reincarnate into
another piece of furniture and get back at me.
Come to think of it I did fall out of my new chair, broke my arm and tore my rotator cuff.
See there is truth in this theory.
Either that or I knocked a screw loose when I hit my head on the dresser not long ago.
I could go on, but I am going to apologize to all my furniture now so
there won’t be any future misunderstandings.

  1. I think it is very interesting how humans give a human persona to objects. Many people do this with cars and other vehicles, as well as furniture, etc. as you show here. I think it may be our inborn desire to connect.
    I loved this word and your post for it. Great piece, Patricia.

    1. Thanks, Annie. I guess wanting to connect is why we talk to our pets. I talk to the boys all the time. Sometimes they humor me and listen but mostly I just bore them.

  2. I LOVE this! What a brilliant word!
    And I agree… although for me it’s technological items. So many times I’ve just about stopped myself throwing a computer out the window. And as for the various gadgets in my house that constantly beep at me, the microwave, the washing machine, dryer, dishwasher, fridge… I have actually yelled at them to shut up a few times!
    Thanks for joining in again, great to see you back!

    1. Techno things do have a mean streak. They love to ping away until your head is ready to burst. As much as I do not want to do without the modern techno stuff I think they are a danger to my sanity. 🙂
