Are objects in your house laughing at your expense? Do they fall off the counter when your not looking? Slip onto the floor without provocation? Betray you when your in public—I could have sworn I zipped my fly up before I left the house?
Okay, I admit, I might be guilty of that one—seeing that I mixed the colors with the whites—but I have a good excuse… I’m a man.
Wanna know why?
Inanimate objects, are not inanimate at all… and have an very odd sense of humor.
Remember that time when you had your hands full, and you had to dig through your purse for your keys. Remember you securely set your cup of Starbucks on the roof of your car. Then when you went to open the door, the cup literally LEAPED from the roof of the car, and splattered all over your brand new skirt.
That was sooo… funny. Even total strangers walking by thought so. Especially when you began screaming in tongues. There you were; stomping around, launching objects that were left in your hands to parts unknown—the way NASA used to launch rockets.
Or how about the time you were both in a hurry for work. Good husband that you are, you decided to make a toasted bagel for your wife.
Do you remember how the butter knife you set down on the rim of the jam jar, chose that particular moment—your wife had just entered the kitchen—to demonstrate counter-diving, as opposed to the more popular cliff-diving.
You both fell over laughing so hard.
Particularly after bending over, simultaneously, and bumping heads in attempting to pick up the knife.
Your kids thought it was pretty hilarious too—especially the youngest, who spewed a mouth full of milk across the counter—after both of you wound up sitting on your rear-ends.
But you’ve probably forgotten that now, because both of you were unconscious from the concussions.
Inanimate objects like playing practical jokes too—or is it impractical?
Like the time a screw with a Phillips head slipped from your screw-driver. Do you recall how the whole garage was completely empty, except for the small work-bench across the floor from you?
Funny, how the only item it could possibly roll under—was sitting half a football field away!
You have to feel that joke is an old stand-by for inanimate objects, because it happens so often. It doesn’t matter what item is dropped—be it flat, round, or square—the object will (always) find its way under the only desk, or sofa in an otherwise empty room.
