Sanity or Patience: choose one.

Do you ever have one of those moments where you think, "HA! I am sane!" Then you step in dog poo with your bare feet and remember it was your idea to get the puppy...?

More things you should've learned in preschool...

So I have shin splints, and apparently I'm an idiot. *waving my arms in the air and woo-ing with sarcasm* Did you know that running on the sidewalk is like "getting hit by a bus" as I was told. Too late. I'm not a "runner" per say, I just started doing it, but there's nothing quite like injuring yourself when everyone else seems to have known better.

It reminded me of the time I put the blender under a running faucet. Yes, it was plugged in and yes I felt a nice shock. I ask you this, though: how is one supposed to automatically know these things if one has never a) been told, or b) learned from experience? Again with the "what an idiot" looks (yes you - I can see that snurl!). Anyway, I was just a child... a mere 16 or so. Oh, that doesn't help my case? *waving my arms in the air and woo-ing again, this time with my tongue hanging out an my eyes rolling about*

Miss Weiner once microwaved a potato. If you still think I'm the only one who does things that everyone knows you shouldn't do, she nuked the potato wrapped in tin foil. Now spill it - what have you done?

Well, I was going to leave a comment, but I'm thinking it may be too soon for even me to make that sort of comment even if it is about myself.

I can't really think of anything else right now, although that's not to say I've never done it.

But putting the blender under the faucet? Was it on? Cause that would have been even better!

Just yesterday I drove about 2 miles with the parking break on and when the truck started shaking weirdly I was all WTF. Then I figured it out after pulling off to the side of the road. BUT in my defense the parking break light has stopped working properly and was NOT even on when I did this stupid is as stupid does maneuver. But I should be checking it now automatically since I know the light doesn't work all the time.

So are you supposed to run on the road? What's the difference? I guess I'm an idiot too, but I really do want to know.

Yesterday I took my shirt off. Under the ceiling fan. It was on high. It hurt my fingers.

I went to put my little ones cup away. It still had milk in it and I put it in the cabinet. Oops..

Am I allowed to laugh? FYI go get a pair of *real* running shoes and have people at a real running shop fit you for them. You'll be amazed at how easy it is to run then. Which reminds me that I probably need new shoes.

As for my what an idiot moments ummm... I think I just block them out of my mind. I know I have to have them OH! When I was seven and cooked for the first time and made hot dogs by ummm sauteeing them in two sticks of butter? I'm now a much better cook.

Ummmm...I had no idea about the not running on the sidewalk. My hubby is a runner, I'll have to ask him if hew knew that.

But the blender...plugged in...ha ha ha. Thanks for the laugh. :)

Oh man, do I have a list for you...

Since moving to this country, I have destroyed

3 garbage disposals
2 micro waves
1 stove
1 coffee maker
3 Sliding glass mirror doors
And a Bissel

Let me tell you, I am such a rock star grownup/housekeeper. Don't feel bad. I wonder the same thing.

Hahaha! Oh I've had my fair share of idiot moments! Usually a spoon in the microwave is a frequent around here! And I'm always burning my arms and hands on the oven.

You put a plugged in appliance underwater and you didn't know..... I'm sorry, but that is pretty bad. I'm sure that I've done something equally bad, but right now I just can't think of it. I just can't believe you put a plugged in appliance in water. Thank God it wasn't something for the shower.

Put an orange in the microwave for 5 minutes instead of 5 seconds- and put a barrette in an outlet (but that was when I was a toddler - or was it?)

I got my finger stuck in a mixer once. The beaters got stuck together, I turned it off and tried to undo them. Well it magically turned on while I was trying to get them unstuck and the thing died on my finger. As a result I got stitches. Didn't think to unplug the machine.
