|From Christmas Lights Etc|
Yesterday was my first round against my lights. I had a few strings of LED lights that were on a shelf in the garage and I figured what the heck I can straighten them out in a heartbeat. Boy was I wrong. A few innocent strings of Christmas lights quickly became an entanglement that had me scratching my head. I followed my normal procedure of stretching the light strings out as best I can to avoid making the situation worse, spacing the strings apart so I can tell which strings is which, and then start unwinding the lights from the male plug end.
In theory, that sounds like a good plan until I come across some knotted Christmas lights. By the time I untie the knot and continue working my way through the strings of lights, I have invested 20 minutes in my Christmas lights and have only separated a few strings. I can only imagine how the rest of my lights will turn out.
I know, I know…I should store the lights better and, for the most part, I do but there always seems to be some strings that get all discombobulated. Lend me your tips and tricks.
