Then I went and got groceries. My brand new bottle of olive oil fell out and broke on the sidewalk in front of my house. The Internet helpfully told me that I could absorb it with kitty litter. I conveniently had half a bag of unused litter - I'd tried switching brands and the cats and I and my petsitter all hated it. So I sprinkled it all over the pavement and warned the neighbours walking by so they wouldn't get olive oil on their shoes.
