Other People Exist

Studies show that even when they are not there, other people exist, with thoughts, feelings, and desires just like you

Here it is: the latest Leak&Spill catalog. As someone who both leaks and spills, I am finding many useful products inside this catalog. In addition to Grippy® Mats and Fat Mats®, this catalog features the Haz-Mat, which can soak up "acids, bases and unknown liquids."

As you can imagine, unknown liquids are what trouble me most. Where do they come from? Of what are they composed? One day the floor is clean and tidy, and the next day there is a puddle of something, but it does not look like something I normally leak or spill.

Perhaps two known liquids leaked or were spilled, and these two liquids melded into one puddle, possibly overnight, while I was asleep. But this only makes the above questions doubly troubling. Especially when I do not remember spilling anything nor do I recall anyone or anything leaking in the area.

Haz-Mats, by the way, are $61 for the pack of 50. They will soak up the unknown liquid, but the questions remain.

That is the very problem with questions, nothing seems to soak them up. ~Mary

deep pondering is always useful on any subject. I can see why this is so perplexing.

Congrats on your March success!

Around our house it's called schmutzig, and we can blame it on the dogs.

In the brilliant words of Donalt Rumsfeld, there are the known known, the unknown knowns, and the unknown unknowns.
