Conservation of Matter - Disproved

The law of conservation of mass/matter would have you believe that in a closed system (like my own private Mum-iverse,) matter cannot be created or destroyed although it may be rearranged. We of course know this to be untrue. It has been disproved by the evaporation of my Nice Black Shoes.

They are nowhere, where once they were somewhere. Because of this, at tonight’s function I wore black open-toed heels (sounds like an oxymoron, but isn’t) when really I wanted my mid-heeled closed shoes. It’s been raining for four days and winter is on the way, so it’s cold and wet here and those are the shoes I really needed.

Before I got to the function centre, I stepped in a large puddle in the dark. When we arrived I had to negotiate a steep wet hill without making a spectacle of myself on my heels. And once I was inside, my toes got cold.

So where is the law of conservation of matter when it comes to my Nice Black Shoes?

And Sonny Ma-Jiminy’s Kindy Pie Drive form?

And Smoochy Girl’s pink fleecy hoodie?

And Hubs’ black leather belt?


It’s very late right now and so my brain is a little addled, but the way I see it, the law allows for matter to have been rearranged. So perhaps my shoes were rearranged into the pink fleecy hoodie, the black leather belt was rearranged into the Kindy Pie-Drive form, and both were then re-arranged into something that’s right under my nose.

I bet it’s that vase of artificial gerberas.

Now I’ve sorted that out, I can go to sleep.

You can have Kindy Kid Cousin's pie drive form. It's completely blank and due back soon.

Woohoo! I'll have one of each, thanks. Any blueberry, BTW?

Pack of four blueberry muffins, $7.

Proving your mum wrong about the colour blue not being a natural food colour - priceless.

But do you still have the same number of brain cells?

Oh, I just read my comment above. About the blueberry pie. Ummm. Yeah.
