an alternate dimension?Posted: June 20, 2013
On the other end of the spectrum from Occam’s razor:
I got my new iPod earphones from Amazon. They came in one of those annoying plastic blister packs. They had three sets of ear pieces: one on the earphones and two included separately. As I pried open the blister pack the alternate earpieces popped out. The two large ones were present and accounted for. I could only find one small one. I looked all around on the floor next to the computer table in my office loft where I had opened the package. Multiple times. Nothing. It could have been an error in the packaging, I thought, but that happens rarely.
Later in the evening, when I went back in there to shut down the computer before going to bed, there it was on the floor, as plain as day, even though it was almost 10:30 p.m.
I can’t tell you how often that has happened to me when it comes to household objects.
I know better (I think), but I would swear that household objects sometimes slip into an alternate dimension for short periods of time just to annoy us.
