From a friend:

She was trying to hurry to get her young daughter and herself out the door.  She was roaring around, trying to get ready and had a constant monologue going along the line of:  "Come on! Come on! Come on!  We gotta go!  Come on, getcher stuff and get out to the car.  We have to leave right now, come on!  Hurry!  Grab your bag!  Come on!"

Friend grabbed her daughter's hand and started pulling her out to the car.  Daughter kept saying, "But Mommy!  Mommy!  But Mommy!"  Friend was having none of it, kept a firm grip on daughter's hand and kept up the monologue.

They got in the car and started on their way, with the daughter still exclaiming "But Mommy!" and friend cutting her off each time with more monologue.

As friend pulled onto the main highway, still running the monologue, and hit the gas, she looked down.  Bra and panties, and nothing else.

When I was about four, I was talking to my paternal grandfather, who was sitting in his car.   I had one hand on the door frame...

Mom came up, shut the car door, and grabbed my other hand to take (drag) me to our car.

I was speechless and trying to tell her that I could *not* go - but it took my feet coming up off the ground when she took a step and almost fell down because I was *not* budging to take a look at why I couldn't be moved...

My thumb was stuck in the door...

Luckily, Grandpa hadn't started driving off...

I found out the hard way not to put bubble bath in the hotel Jacuzzi.

I posted about this incident with DH.  He went to a local dollar store and was browsing around when he came across some shiny, blue crystals in a dish as part of a display.  He thinks "Great! Samples of candy."  Pops one in his mouth and starts to chew.   "Candy" is tasting stranger and stranger.  He walks back to the display to discover he's just eaten crystal air freshener.

I remember being a kid and having my mom suddenly shout at my brother and me to come help her. She was taking a bubble bath and turned on the jacuzzi jets. There were bubbles everywhere.

And on the second part, my mom once put a few dog treats beside her plate so she could give them to the dog during dinner. (I kept telling her not to feed the dog from her plate and the dog wouldn't beg. This was her "solution." ::) ) The treats were little flat discs and looked like chocolate. My brother is coming into dinner, walks by her plate and says, "Ooh, chocolate!" He shoved them in his mouth before we could correct him.

This seems sort of fitting, considering the brother's rudeness in seeing chocolate by somebody's plate and immediately grabbing it all and eating it!

Which we told him (repeatedly) when he complained, I assure you. ;)  (And when we tease him about it years later too.)

I'm a dummy.  We went for all-you-can-eat sushi at lunch today and I played ball tonight.  My stomach was still not feeling great 7 hours later.  I thought I'd just eaten too much.

And then I remembered I ordered mango ice cream to finish off the meal.  I'm allergic to latex (contact only) and have started to mostly avoid foods that are related (kiwi, pineapple).  I totally forgot about mango.  I'm wondering if that's why I feel so crappy.  Next time I go, I'll have either the ginger or green tea ice cream instead.

And I won't go on a baseball day again, just in case it was just too much food.

I either need to work on my handwriting or learn to type up my notes right after meetings.

I came into look at my To Do list for today and one of the items on my handwritten list from yesterday appears to be "Tetris dance".

Now there's a statement I never thought I'd read on Ehell. :P

The males in my DH's family are all allergic to mango. It is in a lot of things, so be careful!

I am laughing so loud in my office!

I've now learned to put all the things I need to take with me next to my purse, but I still forget things every day. Sigh.

I'm pretty sure it was you who told me about the relationship, too.  It was someone on eHell, anyway.  But I do feel better this morning.

For Christmas, we got these cute little ice cream bowls and spoons that look like ice cream.  They're adorable, but one of the spoons keeps breaking apart at the seam.  I've reglued it twice already. 

Well, the other day it came apart again, so I got out the superglue.  The cute little bottles I have are very small and have a cap that has a little pin in it that goes down into the "nozzle" of the little glue bottle, to keep the glue from clogging the nozzle.  Generally they work really, really well.  But the other day when I uncapped the glue and tried to squeeze some out, it didn't come out.  I thought maybe the glue bottle was just nearly empty, so I got my fingers around the base of the glue bottle and squeezed really hard.  I'm sure you can see where this is going...

Apparently there was just an obstruction in the nozzle, because the amount of force I expended was enough to make a LOT of glue come pouring out of the bottle.  Enough to get all over several of the fingers on my left hand, plus the little spoon.  I had to quickly pry my fingers apart before they stuck together.  One finger almost got glued into a bent position, which would have been *really* annoying.  I did manage to get the spoon fixed, *and* was holding over some newspaper so I didn't get glue all over the counter, but it was a near thing.  And then I was picking glue off my fingers for two days.

I use a glue called Hypo cement that uses the needle to keep the nozzle free. I found out that the tube had cracked, because the dried cement was picking up beads on my bead table.
