Kathryn’s Law August 16, 2007 by Kathryn 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.

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!
Also, true for rubberbands, jelly beans, and cheese wrappers!!!
Yup. And in bare feet too.
Yup, and serves you rght, too! For not following your better instincts!
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.

And Froot Loops, which must then be swept or vacuumed. Damn!
I’m glad I’m not the only one who walks by the grape.
That very same rule also applies to Cheerios.
And goldfish crackers. Those things crumble into a million tiny little pieces.
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.
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.
Also applies to cat barf.
GOOD point. And don’t forget that it will be there for you to clean up later!!!
I break that one all the time. With raisins, too.

I second the cat barf and the TP.
happens every time!
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.)
Snort!!! Bottled water caps are my nemisis!
