Farewell Supermarket

Once again, my crippling clumsiness has struck and wow was it ever spectacular.

I managed to close down a supermarket aisle! Woo!

I went to on my weekly supermarket trip, all was well. I normally make it out of the place without wreaking much havoc. But no. Today was special. I managed to drop five bottles of pasta sauce and they weren't even a brand I wanted.

I'll explain. The cart I was using started acting up on me. About half way through getting what I needed, one of the wheels started to drag and pull the cart sharply to the left. So to get it to move I had to really push the damn thing. Then it didn't want to stop. So as I was reaching for a pasta sauce the thing bumped the shelf and knocked a bottle off. I caught that one but in the process I knocked off four more bottles. As I tried to catch the others I dropped the one I caught. The aisle was pretty much covered in red and glass. Somehow I only managed to get a few drops on myself. I explained what happened to the store manager and got out of the store as soon as I could. I finished my shopping elsewhere but I'm never going back to that supermarket.

I didn't tell Aaron what happened. He would have never let me live this one down.

The thing is, I should have known it was going to be a bad day. From the moment I woke up things have been going badly for me. I wanged my fractured toe on the door frame (I almost cried), all the pans came down avalanche style when I went to make breakfast and I dropped the dental floss in the toilet. At least dinner was great. Beef Stroganoff- yummy.

Wow, when you have an off day it is STUPENDOUS!

I have to admit I have dropped a jar of sauce or 2 in my shopping forays.. Not fun explaining you need a clean up on isle 5!

I hope that your days goes better today!

Thankfully today did go much better, but since I checked this (today) when Aaron was walking by me, he got a peek at what I wrote. Now he knows what happened.

At least he asked if I got hurt at all before he started laughing his head off.

Ohmigosh..I know it probably wasn't very funny at the time, but it has me laughing out loud. I can almost see it playing out un my head.
