You know you're having a bad day when....
there's an embarrassing series of events that leads to your shoelaces being marinaded in Coca-cola.
Today's car show day, we get up, get dressed and stop at the wonderful McDonalds for a quickie to eat. Daughter in charge of getting pop.
Clearly, the daughter needs a lesson in adhering lid to cup.
Me, in desperate need of caffeine fix, sits down and picks up cup. Straws coming closer, I can almost feel the rush of it in my veins when...
that's NOT the rush I was looking for!
16 oz of cola and ice come tumbling out, onto my lap, onto my shirt, soaking me thoroughly. I stand up, dripping.
The husband and daughter laugh. Of course they laugh. I didn't laugh. Embarrassing is one thing, looking like one pissed themselves in public is far more mortifying.
I come home, spray off in shower and redress. Thank GOD my bacon, egg and cheese McGriddle was not damaged in the wounding of my ego. I still haven't had caffeine tho. I'm kinda skeered.
Dare I go back out there?
