While cooking one day, I split a few grains of rice on the floor. As I continued cooking, I could feel myself stepping on rice all the time. I thought that rice was strewn all over the floor, but I realized that wasn’t the case as soon as I looked under my foot. I saw a grain of rice stuck to my sole, which had me believe that that there was rice everywhere.
