Scientific Proof that Nature Abhors a Vacuum
March 5th, 2014
You know that thing you learn in high school science class – that “nature abhors a vacuum.” I have irrefutable proof of the veracity of that statement right in my very own home.
Behold, the kitchen sideboard.
I clean this darned thing off regularly. Okay, somewhat regularly. Okay, when we have company coming for dinner.
But no matter how often I clear it off, it immediately repopulates itself. The current contents include, but are probably not limited to:
- 1 hunter orange stocking hat (belonging to Josh)
- 1 spritz bottle full of blue water (for painting the snow)
- 4 cans of soup that didn’t fit in the pantry when I put away groceries
- 1 rogue dollar bill
- 3 napkin rings
- 1 hand mixer (and two beaters to said mixer)
- 1 game of BINGO
- 2 cookie cooling racks
- 1 bottle of garlic powder
- 1 stack of mini muffin cup liners
- 1 straw explorer hat
- Instructions and recipe book for my new crock pot
- 2 water pitchers (one belonging to the church, one that lives in my basement)
- 1 Christmas platter (no idea why that is out now)
- 1 plastic canister of rice
- 1 spiral notebook
- 1 mixing bowl (on its way to my parents’ house)
- 1 package of staples
- 1 bag of assorted baby stuff (en route to Best Friend)
- 1 bag of bananas
- 1 set of repositionable stickers
- 1 water bottle
And that’s just what I can see in the picture…
Ah, the things I do to bring science to life for my family!
