Mixing Mishap

I was preparing a recipe for puppy chow, a snack made of peanut butter, chocolate chips, cereal, and powdered sugar. When I went to shake the cereal and sugar together in a bag, the bag broke and the contents went everywhere. I sank down in the middle of the floor, covered in powdered sugar. It's funny now, but it was not at the time.

Hoopla

I cried when my hoop earring broke. There was nothing special about the earrings; they weren't even expensive. I'd bought them at Target because I like hoops and they were reasonably priced.

In a Lather

I cried every time I got in the shower because my shampoo (which I normally love) smelled awful to me during pregnancy. My husband bought me three different kinds and I couldn't stand any of them!

Veg Out

I made an amazing dinner for my husband one night, and when we went into the kitchen to clean up after we'd eaten, I realized I had forgotten the salad. I just sat there and cried while saying "I forgot the salad!"

So Crabby!

I once sobbed over a magazine article featuring a crab sandwich from a restaurant in South Carolina. I live in Texas.
