It Might Just Be Me

Now that I have been home for a few days, I've been noticing a few things have changed in my apartment; nothing big, just small differences which I, and apparently only I, can see. For example, the patio door seems to be sticky. It's getting harder and harder for me to get it started on the slide. Once it goes, it seems fine, but that initial push is really tough. Of course, it might not be the door at all; it might be just me.

Then there is the 2L carton of milk in the fridge. The box is the same size and shape, but the milk inside seems to have become more dense. That is the only way I can explain the weight increase in the whole thing. Or maybe they have gone to heavier cardboard and wax, maybe that's why that carton of milk is getting harder to lift. Or, it might just be me.

The coffee maker has developed something new as well. It seems to take more water to fill it, or at least the jug of water I use to fill the coffee maker seems to have more water in it. That's the only way I can explain how it has become tougher on me to fill that coffee maker. Or, it might just be me.

The hallway to the laundry room seems to have gotten longer as well. At least, it takes a lot more pushes to get there from my apartment. Before I left, a couple of pushes on the wheels of my chair and I was down the hall. Now it seems to take more than that; not a lot more, just enough so that I notice. Or, it might be me.

Speaking of laundry, who substituted my old laundry hamper for one that holds more laundry. That is the only explanation I can think of for my laundry basket getting heavier and heavier; it's got more laundry in it, or perhaps the clothes have increased in thread count or size or something. Or, it might just be me.

Then there is the fridge door. Someone seems to have replaced the magnets with stronger ones. And why are the drawers on my dresser suddenly more difficult to pull out. Someone must have put stick stuff on them. And why does the bottom shelf on my cupboards seem to be higher, and my coffee cup heavier. There must be an explanation for all this. Or, it might just be me.
