    Default Somedays I it just doesn't pay to get up

    Have you ever had one of those days where you wonder why
    you got out of bed? much less wake up to begin

    Well it is proving to be one of THOSE kind of days for me now.
    Well everything started out just fine, cleaned the kitchen, took
    a shower got dressed left to go to the store to do some shopping
    (sadly not fabric or anything fun like that). Remembered that
    I had not ate yet today so I decided to stop off at the little cafe
    up the street from me, order a glass of ice tea, and small plate
    of french fries.

    Yvette (the server) brings my fries and the Heinz 57 sauce to
    me (I like to dip the fries in it). As usual I "shake" the bottled
    only to discover to late that the cap was NOT tight on the bottle
    just "sitting" on it, Heinz 57 sauce went flying EVERY where mostly
    on ME, hair, glasses, shirt, pants, INSIDE my shirt (that one mystifies
    me). walls, table, everywhere but ON the fries go figure.

    Yvette comes over with extra napkins, wet towels, and poor girl
    is TRYING not to laugh helps me clean things up, but when she
    was going to help me get it out of my hair she lost it and so did

    I proceeded to eat than came back home to take yet another shower
    so I am calling that shower #3 in 90 minutes. I am almost afraid
    to try to make it to the store now wondering what will happen next

    Just thought I would give y'all a laugh for today (at my expense).

    Have a HAPPY (or better than mine) Tuesday.

    yes, do hope your day is going so much better .... but I, for one, think Heinz 57 accents/perfume is perfect for shopping.

    I did not want to get out of bed today because I knew I had a dentist appointment. Well $338 dollars later and my face is frozen and I wished I'd stayed in bed. Can you imagine the fun I could have had with $338 in the fabric store instead?

    Well, at least that won't happen again, because you'll check the lid from now on!! Hopefully, the rest of the week will be better! At least you are clean! LOL

    Thanks for brightening the day of a lot of people! How is the color red on you, anyhow? Today, if I am given lemons, I can remember, it could have been Heinz 57! Thank you so much.
