On your mark

I’ve always thought of waterproofing strictly for fabric protection.

Raincoats. Couches. Suede.  You get the idea.

Well, tonight I discovered that very same protection makes possible a great mealtime game  —

At dinner earlier this evening, I spilled some water on the hotel conference room tablecloth.  By accident or design — I can’t remember which — we discovered if you blew on the drop of water, it raced across the table intact instead of dissipating into a wet splotch.

This was very entertaining to all of us.

(We’d been traveling all day.  Perhaps we were tired.)
