I think my dinner plates are “tectonic plates” because they always chip along the edges when next to each other.
From all the chips on the edges of them, there have been a lot of “earthenware quakes” recently.
note: My bowls have recently become “dust-bowls” because I don’t use them that often.
double note: Why isn’t “home plate” in baseball round? (this is a rhetorical question)
triple note: to paraphrase Gene Hackman as Lex Luthor in Superman, “We all have our faults, mine happen to be the San Andreas.”
