Kathryn’s Law

If you walk past a grape on the floor and think, “I should pick that up later,” you will be the one to step on it. Guaranteed.

    The same goes for straight pins, marbles, and cats.

  2. mother of the wild boys says:

    Or if you use all but the last square of TP, and hope your hubby will replace the roll when he uses the potty…..but then you’re the next one to use it anyway……and then you notice there’s not an extra roll under the sink!

  3. Theresa says:

    Also, true for rubberbands, jelly beans, and cheese wrappers!!!

  4. Kimberly says:

    Yup. And in bare feet too.

  5. grammyelin says:

    Yup, and serves you rght, too! For not following your better instincts!

  6. Karen says:

    Not only will you step on it, but you will spend 3.25 minutes cleaning up what would have taken 2 seconds if you’d taken care of it when you first noticed it.

  7. Anne Glamore says:

    And Froot Loops, which must then be swept or vacuumed. Damn!

  8. surcie says:

    So true.

    I’m glad I’m not the only one who walks by the grape.

  9. Jessica says:

    That very same rule also applies to Cheerios.

  10. Jennifer says:

    And goldfish crackers. Those things crumble into a million tiny little pieces.

  11. Shalee says:

    This law does not apply to ice from the fridge though. I have stepped unaware on many of pieces of ice that one of the kids dropped while filling their glass. That will wake you up, I’ll tell you that.

  12. Sarah says:

    Every single time I say to myself “I really ought to pick that up but I’ll do it later” it comes back to haunt me. Every single time.

  13. NG says:

    Also applies to cat barf.

  14. ynaffit says:

    GOOD point. And don’t forget that it will be there for you to clean up later!!!

  15. Kathy says:

    I break that one all the time. With raisins, too.

  16. I second the cat barf and the TP.

  17. RGLHM says:

    happens every time!

  18. Loralee says:

    Hey! I have stared at your smiling, disembodied head many a time wondering when I would open my mouth and say something here.

    Since I did this very thing with grapes this morning (It was red. Seedless, but still…Red.) I determined that the time has arrived.

    Ick. (The grape, not the commenting to you.)

  19. Snort!!! Bottled water caps are my nemisis!
