String Review

Today in The Jejune Bulletin, I will be reviewing an essential part of daily life. As I explored the contents of the woven basket directly to my right, I found a marvelous length of string. The string is white…ish and measures ~20.5 inches long. I’m not certain of the diameter, but it’s fairly substantial for a piece of string. This relatively achromatic cordage appears to be comprised of six smaller pieces of string. This observation can easily be made due to the fraying of one end. The right end, actually. That’s how I’m looking at it right now. The other end, the left end, is a little sticky and matted. I’m not certain what might be causing the stickiness, and I’m not going to take the time to investigate further. I might not like the answer

Many people might throw away an item such as this, but it can still be very useful. It’s still plenty long enough to tie a small bundle of something together. There still might be enough to cut it in half and tie up TWO bundles. It’s also still very sturdy despite the fraying on the right end. I think it’s made of hemp.

All things considered, I’d give this somewhat insignificant bit of twine 7 out of 10 stars. Despite being a little dirty, a little short, and a little frayed, this string’s structural integrity still warrants respect and rightful consideration for tying up things. I’m sure I’ll be using it at some point in the future if I don’t lose it.
