Cords & Pipe Cleaners

I hate out of control power cords, phone charger, iPod cords and all those necessary cords in our lives. I had been using the little wire ties that come with the cord to wrap them up so I can keep my desk drawer neat but those ties are often to short and not durable. To the rescue one day I tried a pipe cleaner. Much more durable and easy to use. They have the added attraction of providing a bored mind something to do. I can't recall how many pipe people I have created and scattered around the house to surprise, and annoy my wife. I will confess as most writers know, sometimes your characters have a mind of their own. So I take no blame when a certain pipe person might to decide to get a little...let's say frisky, that's all I'm saying.
