Oh dear, I created an uproar. Last night I took a flying leap from a kitchen stool onto the countertop, and slid into my Dad's pill tray, which Mom had just filled with a week's worth of pills. It landed on the floor and all the little plastic compartments popped open, spilling the pills all over the kitchen floor!!
My Dad has a kidney transplant, and he takes a LOT of pills. About 30 a day, so there were at least 210 pills scattered everywhere. Gray ones, white ones, blue ones, purple ones, orange ones.... big and little and long and round and everything in between.
Would have been fun to play with those, but Mom snatched us all up and put us on the porch while she swept up and counted out all those pills to make sure she got every last one. She was missing two. She moved the range and found one of them, and after about a half-hour found the other one in the adjacent dining room. Pills roll a long way, I guess.
