near miss

early this morning i open the refrigerator to get milk for tea and pow! from above my head drops - something. and there it is on the floor. what can it be? its the smallest white pumpkin from last falls wedding. kept as a momento and placed atop of the fridge to hasten the drying process. obviously that didnt work. the insides were total mush that missed my head by only inches. the remains were scooped into a dustpan and heaved into the compost pile. maybe next year white pumpkins will grow there without even being planted.
