I really don't understand why that box wit all the lights and words gets so much attention. But the person that sits at our desk is always looking at it. She can't seem to take her eyes off of it. Sometimes for hours on end. In fact, she seems to be agitated when the small furry thing stands in front of it. I guess it noticed the box getting so much attention too. She tries to move it out of the way or off of the desk. But even the furry thing runs back up and gets right in front of it again.
I'm just as valuable and useful! I shine bright light as well and help illuminate everything in my path. But I sit off to the edge of the desk like a side note. Sure my switch is turned on every time it gets dark, but then it's like I am forgotten about. I feel I have much more beauty and grace than that box of light. I am made of heavy brass. My base and neck are sculpted and shaped. I am designed with great detail and artistry. It just doesn't make sense.
Sure, the box has lots of different pictures and colors coming off of it....but it doesn't have any real asthetic appeal as far as I'm concerned. It's just a mere, plain black box. I think that the person that sits at our desk should give us equal amounts of attention. That's all I am asking for!
Later after it got dark she came and sat down as usual. I didn't get my hopes up. Miraculously, this time she picked me up and turned my light towards her. She then started tapping tiny boxes in front of her on a long, flat object. I noticed that I illuminated the long flat object with the tiny boxes. That made me feel proud to shine my rays. I guess I was needed and appreciated after all. I knew she would come around!
