Laws of Household Gravity Revisited

Flat horizontal surfaces around the house have a gravitational pull rivaling black holes. Think I am crazy, just look around. Or better yet try an experiment. Clear your counters and you kitchen table and take a picture of each. Leave them be for three days to a week.

Come back and take another picture of each surface (if you can still see them that is) and compare. You will note the clutter that has been mysteriously attracted to each surface, the fine layer of dust (or in my house, husky fur) a few plastic bags some full some empty, a box of tissues, a water bottle or two – you get the idea.

No flat surface remains long uncluttered the old saying goes, and the reason is the increased gravitational pull of the horizontal surfaces, not me being too lazy to put stuff away. Next: Gravity, good or evil?

I've already told you about my 'any flat surface syndrome'in an earlier comment, they have magnetic properties around my house too.
I might take a photo of my beautiful table when I have cleared it of other people's clutter so that I can remember what it looks like. :) xoxo

Gravity - most definitely an evil force as we age.

BTW, don't you find horizontal surfaces attract more items used by women than by men?

did you know that the stuff in the garage and basement procreates?

In our house the attraction seems equal as far as gender, but the kitchen table seems the to have the most gravity...

I think there my be some procreating going on, good point. I clear an area, come back a couple days later and it is filled up again. I also believe that wire coat hangers have the same ability, in fact the mate continually which explains that no matter how carefully hung they are always tangled up when you want just one.
