Keeping things together, preventing slips

* I recall advice when I was applying for colleges: Use a colored paper clip when attaching your documents because it helps make yours memorable.
* In addition to holding documents together, paper clips have many other uses. For instance, this week, I fixed our toilet with a paper clip. The hook on the valve cover split, leaving the chain attached to the lever to slip at every flush. But I stuck one end of a paper clip through the rubber valve cover and the chain through the other and now it works fine. I was very proud.
* Years ago, I used to keep spare paper clips in my wallet, just in case the need arose.
