I think my house has elementals. Etheric beings with mischievous urges.
The other night I noticed I was dropping items on the kitchen floor. I realised at about 8 times. Every time I bent down, I noticed how bad the floor was, and then I would pick up the item and continue preparing food.
At about 20 times, it occurred to me that the house wanted the kitchen floor sweeping, so I did so a few minutes later. I haven’t dropped another thing since.
