I wasn’t planning on posting anything today, but we just had another memory moment in the Deane household.
My eight year old had taught herself how to make frozen ice’s from juice and soda today, and wanted to make me one.
So I pulled out the big ole honkin’ jug of green vegetable V-8 juice, shook it rapidly, and placed it on the counter after loosening the lid, so she could pour my ice cup easily.
Then I went to start her bath water.
I’m sure you can guess what happened next. 😉
I came back, picked up the container of what I am now calling “mean, yucky green stuff that should not be in certain parts of my body”; started shaking…
hehe, it went everywhere when the cap flew off.
All over the counter and crock pot
it doused my hairy in green stuff
it went down the front of my sundress.
Yes, it was everywhere.
My eight year was shrieking with laughter as her little face reddened from lack of oxygen from laughing so hard.
My ten year old, came over shook her head, and gave me her patented “I’m almost a teenager” look of sarcasm / pity.
My husband came down, and tried not to laugh.
“It’s okay, you can laugh,” I muttered and ran water in my eye. Yes, it was in my eye!
I laughed. We all laughed.
And hubby even offered to clean up the mess while I took a quick shower.
I like that about my family.
Even though we get busy, or frustrated, or distracted from the important things, we can always find something to laugh about together.
(Usually, it’s me. But hey, what’s the point of being boring. I like to entertain people.)
Notes to self from this afternoon:
- Always make sure the lid is tightly screwed on before shaking anything.
2. Put this scene in a future book. People like a good laugh 😉
hugs and laughs ❤
