When you cook, and you drop, say, a dry lentil, and it falls behind the microwave, a few days later some moisture condenses back there and … your forgotten lentil sprouts and a hard working forager finds it on an exploratory mission and it makes her very happy. She picks it up and heads back across a landscape of nearly microscopic fragments of salt crystals, dust, and hair on that surface you think you just scrubbed clean and she gives her treasure to her sisters who don’t thank her, they just store it away and she goes back through whatever perilous paths she’s traversed looking for one more thing that you’ve dropped. And she’ll keep doing this, over and over, until an accidental giant crushes her with a careless footstep.
