Today has been one of those days.
Our building is under construction and they’ve installed new bathrooms upstairs directly above the “old” ones we are still using downstairs. At random times over the past couple of months, many a ceiling tile has been burdened with enough drips to break or leak onto the linoleum floor. Today was one of those days.
I caught myself as I slipped in today’s puddle and looked up to see the ceiling tile nearly ready to burst. I had high hopes that would be the clumsy moment of my day. I was wrong.
I dropped my lunch on the floor as I was taking it out of the microwave. Four or five people were hanging out in the kitchen while I nuked my lunch…and as I took my hot lunch out of the microwave, the plate hit the microwave door and SPLAT! my lunch was now floor decoration.
I couldn’t help but laugh as I cleaned it up. One of my co-workers kept handing me paper towels and I had it cleaned up in short order. As I drove to Wendy’s to grab a quick bite to eat, I was still laughing. Good times.
There was a time when SPLAT! would have ruined my day. Now, I’m relieved to laugh my way through SPLAT!
One thought on “SPLAT!”
We’ve jumped in enough puddles to learn the sound “splat” isn’t always so bad.
