Day 131 - Looks Can Be Deceiving
I say that because, sure, pipe cleaners look all innocent and fuzzy, but concealed underneath the fur is a razor sharp skeleton of bendable metal. Imagine my pain as I used my index finger to press these furry straws into the bottle, their pin-like frames pushing back into my flesh.
So, originally, I chose this bottle because I feel cats have an affinity for cheap, furry, sting-like things. But after my painful experience with the metal innards of the pipe cleaners I imagined cats looking innocent in fluffy in the same way but having the potential to scratch and maim me. It is an odd metaphor, cats are pipe cleaners?
