Of Brooms and Blogs


By now, most of you who have read Rebecca's blog have probably tried this, or just taken her word for it. I hadn't read my blogs since Thursday and I could not believe how far behind I was! It seems all of the blogs I read had at least one new post. It's amazing that I could get that far behind that fast. But I digress!


I just had to try the "broom phenomenom for myself. Thus the above photo! I am quite sure that this little broom trick has entertained many of us over the past couple of days.


I went to a Sunday School Class luncheon today, and took my broom picture. It was a huge hit, and I'm sure some of them are going to try it when they get home. At first they thought I had used some sort of trick photography. I assured them I was definitely not that talented.


I guess I have a strange imagination, but as it is so close to halloween, I could just picture about 50 brooms, all standing on their own in some parking lot. People would probably think there was some sort of witch's convention going on! LOL!


Thanks Rebecca, for your very informative and entertaining blog. Any more tricks up your sleeve? (That was a phrase I got from my 5th grade teacher; she would slide her hand slowly up under the sleeve on her dress, and then whoever noticed her do this would say, "Mrs. Kohli's got a trick up her sleeve!") Oops! It seems like I have now sauntered down memory lane. Maybe it's the cold, wintry, rainy day that's affecting my mind!


Have a blessed weekend!

Oooh...I love trips down memory lane...they make for some of the BEST stories. I still haven't done the 'broom' thing...
I wonder....would this have worked last year...could be....just nobody thought of trying it?? Or did they? :))

Jackie--I'm also curious as to why this is the first time I've heard about this?! Anyway, it was fun trying it and actually having it work! Donna

Hi Donna,
I am so sad. I tried this too but it didn't work for me. But the floors in our old house are so old, I think they must be level for this to work! It is indeed very strange.
Love Di

It is so cool! I tried it at my daughter's house in Oregon and it worked!!! SOO COOL!

I'm still basking in the "glow" of this broom thing. I don't know WHY I find it so entertaining !? By the way, YOUR countertop is also much less cluttered than mine! This is a side benefit of the broom pictures - I'm getting motivated!

Donna, I think that memory of your teacher is SO great! I had a 2nd grade teacher who told us she had a "stretchy arm". I think she said it to let us know that we would not get away with mischief while she was at her desk! She could zap us with her stretchy arm. I know I didn't want to do anything to incite her. And I can't remember ever actually seeing the stretch arm in action....

I love it that this worked for you as well. What fun. I have passed it on to a few as well but I don't know how many actually tried it. It was fun to see that it worked with your type of broom as well.

Hi Donna, just stopping by to say hello. I tried the broom experiment twice and it did not work for me..My broom is in a sorry state and my daughter-in-laws is worse.LOL. I am thinking this is why it did not work.
