Better Butter… wait, I already used that title.

A couple of weeks ago, the ‘lid’ to my ‘new’ butter system slipped out of my hand and chipped. Surprise, surprise. What did I expect from buttery glass?

I spent a good long time thinking about how to replace it. At various stores, I looked at containers for holding pencils, toothbrushes, sewing goods, fishing tackle – nothing was right. But then ShopKo had this Snapware thing in the lunchbox section.


Perfect. It’s unbreakable, secures my butter with four, count ’em – four locks, and the best part? When I’m running low on butter, there’s room for another stick to get cozy and start a-softening for next time.

I think I might spend too much time thinking about butter.

    I don’t think you should use the words “too much” and “butter” in the same sentence.

    Did it take you awhile to get used to grabbing your butter from a deeper depth? I feel like that would bug me.
