You know the irrefutable laws of the universe?
The one that says a dropped slice of buttered toast always lands butter side down?
Not today, I was carrying my two slices of toast to the steps from the deck to the pool so I could sit in the shade and enjoy my lunch.
On the top step one slice slid off the plate rolled on its edge down the steps across the paving and into the pool.
I have just proved the exception to the rule.
