We have three vases of the same shape, same material, different sizes. The smallest one blew up last night... I think... maybe... I dunno. It's a mystery.
So, I bought these vases (I think they're vases, I don't know what they are, but they look funky and cool) for my hubby about a month ago and he's been displaying them in his nerd cave since then.
This morning I walked into the nerd cave and saw that the smallest vase had blown its top. I mean literally. At first I'd thought either the Mr. or one of the pets had knocked it over, but it was standing quite upright and Mr. Patheral was just as surprised and upset as I am about it being broken. We both saw it intact last night, and if one of the pets had knocked it over, wouldn't they have knocked all three of them over? Not just the littlest one in the middle? I mean, it literally looks like someone picked it up, smashed off the top then set it back in place. Of course, neither Mr. Patheral or I did that, so we're stumped. Here
are pictures to show what I'm talking about.
Being secretly superstitious, my first thought was that the djinn had broken out and is now roaming free. Next thought was that there was something alive in there that we didn't know about which had maybe hatched or something, but there's nothing in there to indicate that at all... it's empty and clean, as are the others (we checked). And even if that were the case, if something had broken out of the vase, why are the bits and pieces so far away from the broken vase? My next wild guess is that some kind of projectile hit it, and somehow just knocked the top off without knocking it over or hitting anything else in the room. I dunno, it could be something really simple and I'm just not seeing it. . It's a mystery. We can't figure out what happened, so I'm asking y'all. Any ideas? We're chalking it up to one of the many strange things that happens in this house, but a logical explanation would be nice too.
