I recently learned that putting a pile of Parmesan on a toddler’s tray then turning your back even briefly to wash a dish, wipe the counter, or open a piece of mail is basically asking for blizzard-like conditions in your kitchen.
In fact, it turns out the weather can change at the drop of a…plate.
For example, if you give a small child a cup of water without a lid, prepare for a Tsunami.
Bowl of soup? Flood.
Granola with milk plus high winds created by flailing arms: Hurricane.
A ramekin of coconut? Flurries.
Bowl of steamed broccoli spun round and round with tip of index finger? Tornado with trees flying.
Of course, spaghetti with red sauce will result in a (un)natural disaster too horrible to name.
How’s the weather in your kitchen? Is it, I dare ask, ever sunny? And if so, I can only imagine that has something to do with splattered eggs…
