The blender stood silently on the kitchen counter without so much as making a thought. It didn’t really do much thinking because it was a perfectly normal blender in a perfectly normal kitchen in a perfectly normal house and the blender liked it this way because it couldn’t imagine it being any other way. To the blender, being perfectly normal was perfectly okay. But if it had been doing some thinking, then perhaps it would have sensed that this very night was a night of foreboding.
The blender was lucky in most regards, because the kitchen had a large window with a marvelous vantage point and there was a good view of much of the surrounding neighborhood. You could even see the sky. When the blender was not being used by the matriarch of the house, it would often be audience to all that happened outside. When the next door neighbor came home with a woman that wasn’t his wife, the blender bore witness. And when the next door neighbor’s wife came home earlier than the husband had expected and caught the philandering man in the act, and had a big fight outside their house, again the blender was there to witness the scene that ensued.
