Vodka or Champagne?
Globules covered in an oily film. I think of chilled vodka and wonder if there is a loaf of white bread in the kitchen for a few slices of toast.
However, the globules reflect light in a different manner. They did not come from the Caspian Sea and are a little too big at 3/16″ diameter. I was clutching a bottle of degreasing solvent instead of vodka, a bunch of cotton buds instead of a mother-of-pearl spoon.
I had to clean and re-pack the hub of my front wheel with a new set of bearing balls from the local bike shop. It is a messy procedure to be sure, but it somehow calms the mind.
