Mystery Solved In The Wee Hours

At four thirty this morning John and I both awoke, went to the bathroom, and back to bed. I heard something like something fell flat on the floor with a loud thud. I thought John dropped something when I heard him say what was that? I thought it was you. I'm up on the double checking all the pictures to see if one fell off the wall. We looked and looked to no avail. I started smelling an odd odor. Boy! were we puzzled, opening drawers, looking here and looking there. I tried to follow the odor and opened a top drawer where we keep tweezers and odds and ends. After shining a flashlight in there I spot a small black lid, not knowing what it went to. Then I saw a piece of glass like a corner of a very small bottle, then something sticky in the bottom of the drawer. It must have been a sample bottle of clear fingernail polish. Can't think of anything else and why did it blow up and why now and not in the hot summer? Strange!

how bizarre! i'd have thought it would do so in extreme temps, too - either hot or cold!

Things that make you go "hmmm".

You unlock this door with the key of imagination. Beyond it is another dimension - a dimension of sound, a dimension of sight, a dimension of mind. You're moving into a land of both shadow and substance, of things and ideas. You've just crossed over into the Twilight Zone.

Wow that is amazing the bottle blows in the night. I'm with you why not in the sun or something. I have never heard of that, why don't they blow on the shelves in the stores?

DID you have a sticky mess?? OUCH!

Definitely strange to have something like that blow up inside a drawer. At least it was somewhat contained.

Maybe it froze and cracked?

That is odd, for sure. Glad you figured out what it was though.
