A few weeks ago I bought a container of Oxi Clean while grocery shopping. 

I went to do a load of clothes and couldn't find it anywhere.  I gave up and went back to the store to buy another container.  I thought I must have forgot it or it didn't make it into my cart.

Digging around in the freezer, I came across a container still in the plastic bag.  I rarely buy junk food and was wondering when I bought icecream.  I didn't remember buying icecream, but it sounded like a nice treat on a hot day.

It wasn't icecream.  I'll give y'all one guess what it was.    :P  Oxi Clean and a half gallon iceream container look nearly identical through plastic.

Please tell me you didn't eat it... *shudder*

It tastes pretty much like powdered laundry detergent but a little sharper.

Okay, this sort of thing happens frequently with us if we don't go out with a shopping list.  In either case, we usually end up buying more than we intended to buy when we're grocery shopping.  Yesterday, my dad and I went out to get stuff for this week's meals.  We went out primarily with chicken breast in mind, but no shopping list.  We came home with everything else we needed, and then some, but no chicken breast.  I think we've got some in the freezer, though, so we're good.

I've decided I'm not allowed to make recipe substitutions anymore. My mom sent me a Duncan Hines Red Velvet cupcake mix so I decided to make it yesterday. It called for a 1/2 stick of butter to make the frosting and I don't normally keep butter at home. When I went grocery shopping they only had entire pounds for $3-4. I'm broke and refuse to have 3/4 of a pound of something I'm unlikely to use to I decided to substitute coconut oil. This was actually going fine and making a nice, creamy frosting until I added the water the recipe called for. Big mistake. The frosting starting to curdle into little pieces that resembled cottage cheese and sprayed everywhere with the electric mixer. I managed to squeeze them together in the bag, but it would not stick to the cupcakes no matter what I did and dried out in little white Cheeto-shaped chunks.

They're still delicious, but I have to add frosting chunks to each bite of my cupcakes. So much for bringing them to work so I don't eat them all!

I my younger days-------------I once opened a small sample of powdered laundry detergent with my teeth. I got a clean colon from that one, by the way.

Recently, I was using Oxyclean as a stain remover and didn't rinse my hands well enough before I ate a strawberry with my fingers. Yes, I, who am almost obsessive about clean hands, did that.

You were hoping for something more interesting, I bet.

LOL! That's quite interesting enough! No need for any further taste tests. ;)

Yesterday I tried to start my car with the key to my liquor cabinet.

I'm not really sure WHAT that says about me.

I've tried to open the front door with my car key and start the car with my front door key.  I'm sure we've all done that, but as a nondrinker I can honestly say I've never tried to start my car with a key to a liquor cabinet.  The most interesting thing on my key ring is the key to a place where I used to live, but I've had too many dreams about that particular key getting me out of trouble [no idea why I have dreams like that] to get rid of it. I know the people who bought it changed the locks, so it's really a key to nothing.
