Slippery Kitchen



Through my excitement of hearing that dinner was ready, I quickly made my way through our first floor, running into the kitchen and due to the fact that I was wearing socks (and just my luck, probably the slipperiest pair of socks I own), I continued to fall to the floor. This can be explained through Kinetic Energy. It was due to the nature of the surfaces both being smooth, and without and grooves, that I fell. There was no traction to create any friction between me and the floor. What I have learned, I only have two options: I should probably stop getting so excited about food, or invest in some socks with grips on the bottom. Guess I'll be getting some new socks.
