Beware of the Chocolate Shakes


***DON'T FORGET...If you haven't entered my Holiday Card Giveaway. Please do so. It is so easy. So Comment away here . If you have already entered...Great! You have made my day :)

I am having one of those days where it seems like there is so much to do in so little time. Dinner, dishes, homework, housework, exercise, showers, and hopefully some sleep at the end. All of the happenings will be between the hours of 6pm & 11pm. My goal is to get around to the whole sleep thing by 11pm. To keep from stressing about all of my gak I have to do, I am going to share with you a bit of yesterday's happenings.

Since the Mr was off site yesterday at lunch he hit the nearby Burgerville. This sweet husband of mine brought me back my favorite shake -I think it is called a Chocolate Monkey or something. With mixed feelings of guilt & pleasure I grabbed that shake from his hand in a heartbeat. Come on, it was chocolate and I could always put in extra treadmill time. After digging through the accompanying bag containing sweet potato fries -okay more treadmill time, whatever- I noticed the lack of straw for my shake. Ack!!! How do you drink a shake without a straw? And wouldn't you know I didn't have a single one in my desk drawer or the bottomless pit aka the mommy purse. The shake was slightly melted so I figured I could drink this with the lid off :) No big deal right?
WRONG! About a fourth of the way into the shake I realized there was a big clump of unmelted shake in my cup. Too bad I didn't realize this before FLUMP!!! I was wearing half of my shake on may face, in my hair, up my nose and all over my hoodie. So glad I was wearing it and even more so since it is black. I gathered a mountain of napkins and quickly covered my face just as a girl from another office walked by. Thanks to her for asking if I was okay. No thanks for laughing her bum off.

I can totally picture it! Hopefully you were able to get most of it wiped off quickly before you got a phone call or one of the boys walked by. I bet Mr W.P. would still be teasing you about it if he saw. :)

Oh NO!!!!!!! LOL

You're right! What were the chances that you'd have a milkshake incident the same day I posted about milkshake throwing. (I guess this comment is going to seem really strange to anybody who didn't read both blogs) LOL

Hi, visiting from SITS. Congrats on the 25$ gift card.

That would have totally ruin my day, if I did not have a straw. I might have actually whined to my husband. Puleeeze, give me a straw.

Your blog looks cool, like a scrapbook page.
