Resistentialism

Following up on my entry about my “peanut-butter that talked my knife into cutting me,”:https://www.upthetree.com/wp-uploads/030915_cut_off.html (One of my most commented entries ever!) I found an article in the New York Times about why “inanimate objects attack.”:http://www.nytimes.com/2003/09/21/magazine/21ONLANGUAGE.html

_I would say more, but I’m sensing my keyboard is annoyed._

I feel that it is not so much that the peanut butter attacked you but more that you were negligent of the peanut butter and as such you suffered some consequences. It's kind of a karma thing. Imagine what would happen if you were to neglect, say, a package of Twizzlers.
Frightening, no?

Jesus!? What the hell are you trying to do? Give me a complex? Everybody knows that Twizzlers are the most dangerous food stuff to leave unattended.

_(That's why I eat them all in one sitting… for safety.)_
