- Across the Eighth Dimension -

Have you ever noticeed how cars are especially active portals to the eighth dimension? You lose something, can't find it for weeks on end, and then, voilà, it appears in the car.

I had another one of those experiences yesterday. I was going through the car looking for something else, and I found this magnet that my daughter had made more than a year ago.

Now, I'm sure you're thinking: hasn't he cleaned his car in more than a year?

Not an implausible hypothesis, to be sure, but in this case, the car had been cleaned a number of times, including two thorough ones after road trips. I swear there is no way that magnet could have been there all that time. But there it is.

"Spooky," as my daughter would say.
