Murphy’s Law And My Kitchen Floor

kitchen floor spill

My kitchen floor seems to have a curse on it which causes me to spill something on it within 24 hours of it being cleaned. I’m not kidding when I say that this happens EVERY SINGLE TIME, within a 24 hour window. It is truly uncanny how some liquid substance will always make its way onto the floor right after the scheduled biweekly housecleaning takes place. Never mind that spills rarely occur at any other time.

What’s weird is that I can move very carefully, thinking about how I don’t want to spill something, and yet, I will still manage to drop something wet onto the pristine floor. I will often see the imminent spill occurring a split second before it occurs. The accident plays out exactly as I see it beforehand, which upsets me even more since I get an advanced warning. Whether it is pre-workout formula, cooked egg, coffee, rice, or any other item which leaves a residue or is otherwise very difficult to clean, I can pretty much count on something dropping onto the floor that will mar the perfectly clean, smooth appearance of the floor.

The spills are always extensive enough that wiping them up with a paper towel isn’t enough. I have to break out cleaning solvents and clean a large section of the floor. Sometimes, I will spill something like uncooked rice or oats, or dry cat food, all over the floor in such a way that the substance will scatter beyond the main area, and nestle into the crevices. Fun stuff.

Maybe this is a sign that I should avoid the kitchen for the first 24 hours after it has been cleaned!
