Hello everyone! Today I thought I would share some humorous things that have happened to me. It’s always nice to laugh a bit, and I always laugh at these things myself. It’s always good to look at the comical side of things. So, here we go…
The other day I was doing some cleaning. Have to do that now and then. I stood up after picking something off the floor. Whacked my back against one of my cabinets. That made me kick a stool. I have no idea why, just happened. That made me bend over, hitting my head on another cabinet. This place is rather small. Aside from the groaning, I also dropped the item I had originally picked up. Sigh. Hard to believe sometimes.
I needed to vacuum my apartment. First I needed to empty the container on the vacuum cleaner. Not a big deal. Normally. But…it didn’t want to come off. I struggled and struggled. Nothing. Finally one last desperate attempt. It came flying off and covered me and surrounding floor with the total contents of dust, cat hair and assorted whatever. Sigh. I think there was still a cloud of dust floating around the apartment the following day. Unless, perhaps, it was foggy.
I wanted to make myself I little sweet treat, nice to have once in a while. It required a cup of brown sugar. No problem, had a new bag. Cut an opening and proceeded to pour it into the measuring cup. Nothing. Sugar never moved. Hmm, the opening is plenty large enough, I thought. As I was looking at it I squeezed the bag. Whomp! Brown sugar everywhere. On the counter. In the sink. On the floor. In my slippers. Except in the measuring cup. Not a grain of sugar there. Sigh. Bought a new bag of brown sugar.
Speaking of shopping. While out shopping one day I needed to pick up cat food for Muffin. She likes it for some reason. Considering how much she enjoys my food, I can’t figure why she wants her own cat food. Anyway, back at the store, I head to the pet section and when I arrive I notice there was a new stack of cat litter. Right, said I, need to get some of that. Which I did. And promptly left. Returning home Muffin greets me as usual, and I remember. Not cat litter, cat FOOD. Muffin was not amused. Just sat there swishing her tail back and forth and looking at my feet. I think my feet were sore for a whole week.
These are just a few of the things that have happened to me. There is so much more, I will keep sharing things now and then. Anyway, I hope all of you have an enjoyable weekend, God bless!
Steve and Muffin.
