Don’t tell me cords are inanimate objects. Maybe my cords are different than your cords. They have a life of their own. I can leave three extension cords lying side by side and come back in fifteen minutes, the cords will be wrapped around each other and in a tangled mess. I am sure my curling iron and the hair dryer are in love. The cords are always wrapped together and I am not the one that wraps them together.
