How about yesterday I tried a new halibut recipe and after I was done cooking it, the platter fell on the floor. At the table my son accidentally spilled his milk of the fish that I managed to save.

Just one of those days. :P

I think I did something similar once... with all my mother's super-expensive waterproof makeup. Apparently, cleaning everything afterwards was a nightmare.


I'm really just here about my wife. Its all her fault!

When you are reading a text book about things you already know and it doesn't make sense.

The biscuits I made then stuck to trays. ( I managed to get them off ok in the end)

When I was cleaning my mess I started to fill up the sink, put the detergent in and realised no bubbles were forming- I had left the plug hole out.

OMGosh! I just about sprayed my coffee all over the 'puter screen with that one!! ROFLMBO!

Once, when my son was about 2 years old, he got into a NEW bag of flour while I was in the bathroom. I had flour ALL over my kitchen and trailed into the living room and hallway. We called him flour-boy for months after that. I was spitting mad at the time, but had enough presence of mind to video tape it for future laughs!!

You know you're having a bad day when your dog has the big D, you are talking on the phone to Metta when you discover it, you wash her -- twice, because she has it while you're washing her, then the mailman comes and you answer the door in your husband's wet, poopy Sponge-Bob Square Pants pajama bottoms and a T-shirt!!! :lol:

Karen -- gotta love Rhiannon!!!!! You don't need wrinkle cream anyway!
