My Broom Is Standing On It's Own

The Mister came home today and said his assistant pulled a
broom from the custodian's closet and made it stand on it's own!
Apparantly there is a strong gravitational pull during this season
that allows this to happen! So, we tried it! We tried our corn
husk broom and then the one with the angled bristles! Both
of them are standing at attention, as you can see! Kinda creepy,
I must say! I guess the pull started back in October and has
another week left. So, is it really a gravitational thing? I guess
there is a big debate whether it is a gravity defying pull or some
thing paranormal. If a witch grabs my broom and flies away,
I'll let you know! hee!

  1. Hey, I wonder if this is the same day that you can stand eggs up on their ends? I'm off to the kitchen to try it out.

  14. Having a broom stand on its own is some nifty trick...but I need a broom that will stand and sweep on its own.

  22. It sure did not work for me! Maybe if my broom wasn't so old and worn round on the edges...

  30. Wow, this is so cool! I tried it too but my broom must be too worn out. Now I'm going to try this at the grocery when I go!

  31. The egg didn't work, neither did the broom... then I figured maybe it's because I'm 10 floors up?

    ReplyDelete
  32. Betsy, You didn't!
    You left the broom in the middle of Sam's Club, standing all by itself?
    Have you ever turn the box of Pineapple Upside Down Cake Mix, upside down on the shelves?
    You are my type of gal!!

    ReplyDelete
  33. Christine ~ I've never heard of that...I won't be able to go down the isle of cake mixes ever again wtihout doing it! hee!

    ReplyDelete
  34. Jill ~ you should have your broom standing in the middle of the kitchen in the morning when the kids come down. I'd love to see their faces!

  37. Lots of static electricty in the air lately too. Really amazing that you could do that. And scary at the same time. Awesome.
