The Midweek Word-prompt over on our other site https://weeklyprompts.com is Curious and was chosen by GC.
He asks if any of us have found ourselves in a similar situation to the one he describes. I have not, therefore, my response focuses on the word itself, however, I will share that I was more than a little amused when he told me the reason for the word-prompt, and all I can say on the matter is I hope he didn’t take the above advice too literally!
Thinking outside the box! When I renovated my house, for practical purposes, instead of bedside table lamps, I chose wall lights. Three years later, two of the bulbs needed replacing and unfortunately, choosing replacements didn’t exactly go to plan.
The DIY/home store was out of stock of candle bulbs so I ordered online.
Firstly, after opening the parcel, I assumed I must have ticked the wrong box and ordered the wrong colour when my intention was to purchase warm white, so I’m curious to know whether it was my mistake or theirs. Secondly, after reading the label, I’m curious to know why anyone would create lightbulbs simply for decorative purposes, and I’m even more curious to know why the life expectancy is only 1000 hours. If I’m not supposed to use the bulbs to illuminate my room, shouldn’t I expect a longer lifetime?
I re-ordered my bulbs and I definitely ticked the correct boxes – Warm White, Dimmable Candle bulbs. This time, however, they sent Non-dimmable! Tomorrow I will start again.
