At Christmastime we often hear of natural disasters that affect whole countries; tsunamis, earthquakes, floods and volcanoes spring to mind.
However, please consider this:
You have just cooked the Christmas turkey and are carrying it across the kitchen, when you trip over the new puppy and drop the plate on the floor.
The following disasters could ensue: the downfall of Turkey, the breakup of China, and the overthrow of Greece.
Take my advice, and be VERY CAREFUL in the kitchen!
