A "Cat in the Hat" moment

Honey, I love you, but this is entirely too much of a good thing. 

With some difficulty,
I scooped semi-crystallized honey
with a knife
out of the jar
and onto my yogurt. 

A large glop fell to the floor
as I reached for a spoon
to scrape it off of the knife. 
I swiped at the blob,
then moved to the table
in order to eat. 

A newspaper clung to the drips
on my sleeve,
my shoes made soft sucking noises
as I walked to the sink
'cross honey-streaked floor.
My husband pointed out a
huge gooey dollop on a counter
not even in range of the honey affair.

Melting moments

Have you ever wondered if you can put a styrofoam cup directly on the warming pad of the motel coffeemakers to catch the hot water?  The answer is no!
