I Guess You Really Can't Take Me Anywhere

Subtitle: Thank goodness that stain stick stuff really works!

We had a kind of informal reception to go to Saturday night; I decided to wear a blue jacket and a white top with a favorite blue print wrap skirt...we NEVER wear blue in choir, so it's nice to have a chance to justify the blue things in the closet from time to time. HOWEVER...

One of the goodies at the reception was a chocolate fountain. I got ONE (yes, one) juicy strawberry and waved it under the chocolate, commenting as I did so that, with me, this was likely a mess waiting to happen (oh, be careful little mouth, what you say...).

Sure enough, in less than two minutes, I had chocolate dribbled on the front of my white top. Fortuntately, a friend had one of those Tide stain pen thingies in her purse...I went to the bathroom and applied said pen to the spot on my top...and the spot came out. It really did. Ok, so now I have to go buy a dozen of those pens...

But the evening wasn't over. I did manage to eat a plate of safe, non-drippy food (a couple of slices of fresh pineapple and a pecan tart) without making a mess, but later in the evening I fetched myself a cup of coffee, and turned to go talk to another friend that I'd spied earlier but hadn't spoken to. I took about two steps, stirring the coffee, and I suddenly thought 'I'll probably spill this all over myself' (oh, be careful little brain what you think...). It is the truth...the moment that thought completed its trip across my little brain, my heel hit a slick spot on the floor and my foot slid out from under me and... I dumped about half the coffee on my jacket, my skirt and the floor. I couldn't believe it.

At that point, I figured I'd better just go home, crawl in bed, and pull the covers over my head....

  1. Sounds like something I'd do. Guess that's why there's not much white in my closet. Lots of black - better for hiding that sort of thing!
