Remember the Robe Incident from 2 days back? Now, I will share the reason for the slop jar.
MadSnapper is afraid of the dark, have been since birth. There was no way I would go down the steps into a dark basement and out the door and down the hill to the outhouse IN THE DARK.. Daddy got the slop jar for me. He would not let me have it in the house, but placed it on the top step to the steps that went down into that dark basement with a dirt floor. The steps were the boards that have no back, just empty backs.
If I put my feet on the second step, something could reach through the back of the step out of the DARK and grab me. SO. Picture me trying to use that pot without putting my feet on the second step.. Sorry if that mind image just ruined your day. The Dark, to be continued.
