Today at work something just plain weird happened to me. Things like this happen to me all the time.
I was eating lunch (okay an early lunch, but I get up earlier than most), and part of my lunch involved grapes. Green ones. Taste great. As I’m eating away at my location, I distinctly recalled pulling three (3) grapes out of the bag, but when I opened my hand, I felt one “leave,” and only found two looking up at me with the “what’s your major malfunction?” look grapes can give. You know the look. I turned that area upside down. Looked around the papers, pens, and nooks and crannies. Under the desk, around the floor (squatted down–I was in Dockers, y’know…). Went to the extremes of the floor the I could reach. Checked the folds of my clothes (wore short sleeves). Fingers. Everywhere.
I shrugged…and continued on. Finished eating (grapes included).
Couple hours later, I break out the second meal (well, third, actually, but who’s counting…as I said, I get up early…). A sealed container. No grapes this time. I open the lid to the container, and (literally) out of nowhere pops this frigging grape!
I saw no grape in my bundle of food, no grape on the desk, no grape anywhere around where I was, in my hands, in the Tupperware-like container. It literally “popped” out of my hand and onto the floor.
From my hands.
Where no grape resided.
I sat there and stared at it. On the floor, over by the wall.
I picked it up and threw it away.
