Refrigerator Magnets

Refrigerator magnets are magnets that live on the refrigerator. There are a lot of different types of refrigerator magnets. Some are advertisements for businesses, typically pizza places and real estate agents. There are alphabet magnets that you can use to write messages, so long as your message has no duplicate letters. There are souvenir magnets from states and national parks that you haven’t been to personally but someone you know did and they went to the gift shop and bought you a magnet instead of something cool like a pocketknife. You can use the magnets to display crappy kid art or to hold up the grocery list. Refrigerator magnets make refrigerators look more like refrigerators. Refrigerator magnets are my favorite garnish for any household appliance.

Souvenirs

Souvenirs are the little knickknacks you get for friends and family members when you go on vacation. It’s a way of bragging about where you’ve been and pretending you were thinking about them when you were drinking margaritas under the sun. Most of the time souvenirs are display items that you’ll never use like magnets, key chains, shot glasses, and decorative spoons. Sometimes you get a postcard. That’s good for 30 seconds of reading one or two times before you stick it in a drawer and forget about it. Sometimes you get a shirt that you’ll never wear, because every time someone sees South Dakota on your shirt and asks about South Dakota you’ll have to explain that it was just a souvenir and you’ve never been to South Dakota, and nobody wants to talk about South Dakota more than they have to, so it’s just better to let the South Dakota shirt hang in the closet.

            If I were in charge of souvenir stands, I would make practical items. Power drills, toothbrushes, and clothes hampers for a start. Things that people need, stamped with a place they’ve only read about. If I can’t go to New Zealand, at least I can clean my gutters with my Auckland pressure hose.
