Caution: Objects may be older than they appear

For about the 10,348th time, I just told my two smaller children: Do not pick up food off of the kitchen floor and eat it. We keep our kitchen pretty clean, so eating food off of the floor is a sort of Russian roulette: Most of the time, the food is very recently dropped, probably in the most recent meal. However, occasionally it will be a piece with remarkable camouflage that has escaped detection for quite some time, and is probably quite inedible.
