Well, was the rest of the party a good time??
I have a similar story. My mother one Christmas told me that she wanted me to put the potatoes to roast in the oven. It was in a Pyrex dish. I put them in, and 45 minutes later, when she opened the oven door, the Pyrex dish shattered and went everywhere!!!
Although it was a pain to clean up out of the oven, and we had no potatoes, it was a good story to tell about afterwards.
