Heavenly Father, thank You for always being with me! I truly believe my life is caught in the Twilight Zone! I find myself in some of the most ridiculous situations. Yesterday was one of THOSE days. I think these incidents happen to me because I do not plan ahead. I fly by the seat of my pants, and I have to continuously figure out how to get myself out of situations which I have created. This tendency has been a part of my life all of my life. The moral of this story is I don’t learn from past mistakes!
Cason and I were on our way to fill my car up with gas so we could drive to the football game on Friday. As we crossed the railroad track on Lakes Boulevard, we heard a loud fizzing sound. Cason said, “Mimi, I think one of the drinks is exploding!” There was so much traffic all around us, and I kept driving while imagining sticky fizzing drink covering all the back of my car. I told Cason we would check on it when we stopped.
We moved things around, and the fizzing noise stopped. I filled up the car and drove on home. When we got there, I started unloading all the groceries I had in the car. Well, I found the source of the fizzing sound rather quickly. I had purchased two cans of room freshener. A six pack of drinks had slid up next to the fresheners and caused one of the cans to start spraying. All I can say is I am glad they were in a bag by themselves. The bag was full of liquid. The back of my car smells really good and the can has about a third of the spray left. One thing I learned was either don’t buy drinks and aerosol cans on the same day, or don’t put them close together in the back of my car! I am just happy it wasn’t an exploding carbonated drink!
