Should Have Seen It Coming


Do you know how many bath towels it takes to clean up an entire gallon of milk off the kitchen floor? I asked my husband to stop by the store last night on his way home from work. He came in juggling two gallons of milk, two loaves of bread, and assorted other items, and one gallon promptly slipped out of his hand to go splat on the floor. It was like a raging white river flooding the prairie.

My husband looked at me and said, why didn’t you tell me this was going to happen? I thought you were a PAX agent.

    So did you explain to him your superpowers resided in other areas?

  2. kacey says:

    LOL! WHY do males do that?? The last time my dh juggled stuff bringing groceries in…it was a glass bottle of apple juice…broken all over the garage.:roll: I guess I should just be glad he brings the groceries in…

  3. kate says:

    so, I’m guessing three medium sized bathtowels?

    LOL. Why is guys load themselves down like that? We’d just make two trips to the car…I think.

  5. Suzanne says:

    Three? TEN!!! Took two loads to wash them all afterward! 👿

  6. Mary says:

    OMG, I hate things like that. Seems like they happen when you’re busy. My question: Where was Buttercup? Now there’s excitment for a cat. But Suzanne, don’t cry over . . . .:grin:

  7. Suzanne says:

    Buttercup missed the entire event because he was outside chasing a squirrel. Our daughter was entertained, however. She figures in the future she can’t get in trouble for spilling a glass!

    LOL Suzanne. I bet your husband thought he was funny. 🙂

  9. Jennifer says:

    Ten towels!!! Wow – lots of spilled milk.
    Love the hubby’s comment – lol!

    At least it wasn’t sticky.

  11. Nicole says:

    Ick. Hope it wasn’t on carpet. Milk can be VERY bad if you don’t get up every last drop.

  12. Michelle says:

    My dh spilled ORANGE wood glue in the center of our white living room rug once. ::Groan::

  13. Leanna says:

    Know how many towels, wash rags, rolls of paper towels it takes to get up a bottle full of olive oil? Broke a bottle in my pantry once. Ugh.

    Hey, Suzanne! Thought I’d drop by and say hello!
