This could go in one of several threads, so stuck it here.
Last night we took my parents out to dinner.
The event was a dinner (a delicious gourment buffet) followed by a stage show.
The entire evening was about 4 1/2 hours long.
During the evening, the theatre provided us with carafes of bottled water on the table.
It was a long night and we drank several carafes of water.
We got to talking about these lovely glass bottles and wondered about purchasing one as my mom has been looking for a glass pitcher or carafe for her fridge.
As we discussed the pros and cons of getting one, we realized that the carafe was really quite tall and perhaps would not fit in her fridge.
So my mom laid it down to see if the stopper was secure enough to store it that way.
Unfortunately, mom did not check to see if the stopper was actually fastened prior to taking a very full, large bottle of water and laying it down on the table.
With the neck pointed directly at her.
And the end hanging over the edge of the table.
And straight into her lap!
It could not have been better executed if she had intended to pour a large amount of cold water into her lap!
Fortunately, it was dark as were her clothes. By the time she had to stand up, everything had dried.
