I always wondered whether these things really happened. Or at the very least, how they happened.
Then, suddenly, my first-born son became a 3-year-old boy.
And now I see that these things really do happen.
I am still not sure how they happen.
ps. If my landlord happens to be reading this, don’t worry, I discovered the rogue band-aid before I ran the dishwasher and was able to remove it.
The dishwasher was not harmed in any way.
Thankfully, it seems the cup had stopped bleeding already and didn’t still need the band-aid.
