PLANETARY ALIGNMENT (or something) CAUSING BROOM-STAND IN GALLATIN CO.
SHAWNEETOWN–We were mystified yesterday (Oct. 28) when we walked into the courthouse at Gallatin County and found a regular old straw-type broom standing upright in the hallway between Circuit Clerk Mona Moore’s office and the courtroom.
A deputy clerk told us that her mom had received an email noting that the planets in the solar system were aligned and as a result, things like a broom, stood up on its brushy end, would remain standing until you took it down.
The clerk (who was a pretty young thing but whose name we didn’t get) said her mom, who works at the school, had a broom standing upright there for something like two and a half hours, with the kids bustling around it. Nothing knocked it over. We, as well as others in the courthouse, were maneuvering around the broom there, but it didn’t budge.
Everyone who ventured into Mona’s office–and past the broom–was considerably amazed at what was going on. We engaged in a lengthy discussion of how 20-some years ago, Ang had managed to balance 14 eggs in the windowsill at her home in Alabama, and how when Jack was a little kid, someone had dropped a penny on the floor of the kitchen and it came to land on its edge.
No one could get a coin to balance in Mona’s office, however; and we had no eggs.
We’ve not seen the email the deputy clerk said her mom got that gave her the idea to try this, but a quick search of the innerwebs showed plenty of chatter about it, all beginning around Sept. 9. Experts said the planets never really “align,” but that there are some gravitational issues going on in the spring and fall that can create optimum conditions for this phenomenon.
With all the weird stuff going on in Gallatin and Saline these days, it wouldn’t have surprised us if, as Mona said (probably recalling the Disney movie “Bedknobs and Broomsticks”), the broom had just up and started floating around; it is, after all, getting close to Halloween (although we don’t observe that particular event.)
If anyone has any more ‘balancing’ objects like this that they attempted due to the ‘planetary alignment,’ feel free to ship them off to us at email@example.com and we’ll post them. Don’t forget to give us a brief explanation. We like to make a departure once in a while from bodies in cornfields and children being allegedly killed by their parents; we thought this would make for a nice bit of entertainment, so join in the fun.
