my dad clipped an article from the paper a couple weeks ago for me and i brought it back up here to my apartment. when i got home, i put everything in my room, including that article. it was over next to my bed. last night i took the drip pans and rings off my stove to let them soak in the sink. i was lazy today and didn't take care of them yet so they're still in there. well, i walked into the kitchen a few minutes ago to put a mug in the dishwasher and i happened to glance at the sink. the article my dad had clipped from the paper was floating in the water. :scratch: it hadn't been there about half an hour ago when i had gone into the kitchen to get the mug. i know because i rinsed off a spoon in the other side of the sink and i remember looking into the sink at the things that were soaking and thinking "i really need to wash those and put them back on the stove." i'd have seen it if it'd been there before. now, i live alone. the only way that thing could have gotten in there is if i moved it. and i didn't. very, very weird.
