Is this a universal law of physics? Or is it valid only at my house?

Within 24 hours of mopping the floor, there MUST be an orange-juice spill or spilled milk or a whole plateful of supper dumped on the floor.

Without fail.


  1. Alas. I believe that it is universal. Hence, the limited amount of mopping that occurs in this house. At least I know I'm not alone.

  2. I was thinking the same thing, Catherine. The moral of the story here seems to be "do not mop" so that the floor will stay cleaner.

  3. When I mop, I either spill something or break glass all over...

    So I sweep much more often than I mop.

  4. It usually takes just a few minutes for the spill to happen here. I am usually the one who does it though. I suppose the mopper and the cook get the same pay.

  5. No spills here although a mopped floor means that someone will track in mud within 10 minutes of drying :)
