Alix, I had mine about a week or so ago. I was making muffins and it required melted butter. So, I melted the butter and had it sitting on the back burner of the stove. I mixed all the other ingredients together and put about half the batter in the muffin pan before I realized that I forgot the butter. Luckily, I was able to put the batter back in the bowl and gently mix in the butter and the muffins turned out OK. I would have been really in trouble if I had not remembered the butter at all.

OK, had another one of those "what was I thinking" moments. I bought the girls innertubes to go tobogganing later today (their old ones are dead) adn thought I'd be a good mom and blow them up. Well, after some vertigo, blood pressure through the roof, a blood blister on my lip (stupid valve slipped!) and a half blown up tube...I remembered that you are supposed to pinch the little valve thingy to open it up. ARGH!

So then I got the foot pump...and after 20 minutes of pumping it was still not full. Only then did I realize that the hose had a hole right next to the pump. Sigh...thank goodness for duct tape. They are both finally inflated and I am now relaxing with a cup of tea to soothe both my lip and my nerves.

Some days you gotta wonder what you did with your brain.

I did the bathtub thing too...and my tub is 48x60 and deep. It has an overflow drain, though...thank goodness.

I have always been pretty flakey...my mind goes one way and my body another. My kids used to say, "Earth to mom...earth to mom!"
One morning I was getting ready to fix breakfast, and I couldn't find the bacon.I knew I had bought some the day before, but it was not in the fridge. I had to get breakfast on for my husband, so I figured he'd have to make do with toast and eggs. When I opened the silverwear drawer to get a fork to scramble the eggs, there was the bacon. It was a little soft, but none the worse for wear.

Alix, you mean, for example...

Leaving a soda on the hood of the car and driving off? (Splat)

or

Forgetting to close the car trunk after unloading groceries - then discovering it wide open the next day?

Me? Never!

Oh yeah. How could I forget - One year my roommie was boiling an egg, getting ready for the Academy Awards. You guessed it! She left the house & forgot to take it off the stove. When I got home, it smelled like something died.

Kadesma, I don't think I'll ever forget that smell. (Burned sulfur? & teflon?) The pot was burned too. Hate to think what would have happened, if I came home any later.
