Beer, Spilled. A One Act Tragedy.
Place: Oakland, CA
Me: Sitting and minding my own business
Glass of beer: Doing the same.
Me: "What the hell was that?"
Me: Looks around the room, reflexively trying to see what the cat's knocked over and broke
Cats: Stare back sleepily, innocently doing nothing
Me: "Hmm... guess it was nothing"
Me: Reaches for beer, lifts up glass and PHOOOOSH! Beer spills out from the perfectly clean 360 degree break at the bottom of the glass. A sudden rush of sticky doom runs all over the table, inches from my new laptop and camera...
Ikea: "Yep, our glassware spontaneously explodes. But hey, it cost 2 cents a glass..."
