I had to laugh!
OK, sometimes I just pull really stupid blunders, and today
I pulled a doozie!
Here is what happened...
This morning Scott went duck hunting with my dad and uncle. I love my alone time and treasure it greatly. I needed to buy some groceries, I needed to go to the post office, and honestly, I needed to do a few other errands, but I did not want to. I called my mom to see if she wanted to go to lunch...nope, not really. Darn it! It is cold outside, but I had a shower after all, and I cleaned myself up. But no, she did not want to go.
It seems I am going to have to cook lunch myself....for myself. I was out of milk, so no cereal, pancakes or anything like that. OK, what do I have...oh I know, I can fix a pizza. I fix a really good pizza, and I have all the stuff to do it. I go out to the freezer grab some hamburger meat, defrost it and start cooking the meat while warming the oven and pizza stone etc. I get all my toppings out, like the sauce, olives, and cheese. I lay out the pizza crust and pour my sauce on top, not a whole lot is left, but just enough to do this pizza....whew, lucky there. I open the olives getting them ready to go on after the meat is cooked. I need to get the strainer out of the cabinet to drain the grease. Reaching up into the cabinet I notice I am really close to the pizza and I stopped just in time of getting my white shirt in the pizza sauce. Whew, lucky there.
I very carefully reach up, get my Tupperware strainer and as I pull it out of the cabinet it catches the one, single, lone paper plate that I have left and knocks it right out of the cabinet. Right onto the pizza.
Oh you guessed it...splat....splatter, pizza sauce every where. I just stood there. Then I started laughing. I couldn't help it. I just laughed. I laughed out loud, I laughed pretty hard. And then I did the only thing I knew to do. I stripped off the shirt, walked to the laundry room and treated it...and I just laughed. OK, maybe you just had to be there. But I really did need a good laugh!
by the way, the pizza was really good!!!!
