Caution

It was early. I am nervous about any day that starts that way.

I was getting my orange juice and instant coffee. I got out a cup and a glass. I put the instant coffee "crystals" in the cup. While waiting for the water to heat, I got the orange juice from the refrigerator. I promptly poured the juice into the cup on top of the instant coffee "crystals". It was either drink caffeinated orange juice or pour the whole mess out and start over. I chose the latter.

When your first thought of the day is a stupid thought, you have to be nervious about the rest of the day.

generally i tend to go back to bad in the hope that my next waking thoughts are more sensible ones

These moments (because they happen to me, too...like catching myself putting the cream in the cupboard)...always make me laugh. Maybe because I was SO rigid as a kid (blame the nuns) that it sort of delights me when I've let my mind relax enough to do something that goofy. (Or am I just trying to put a good spin on an inevitable part of aging?) ;)

Ah! Marilyn, you have a long time to go before you should worry about aging. Blame the nuns! I'll blame the cats that were begging for breakfast.

And oestre-bunny, I like your plan too. It is tough to get in trouble in bed -- at least at my age.

I think I might have tried the caffeinated juice. Who knows? You could have created a new taste sensation!

Yesterday, I accidentally threw a bag containing books I meant to return to the library into the trash. And then remembered with a jolt and had to go fish it out again - and you are feeling bad because you put orange juice into a cup containing coffee crystals!! See, you have far more accomplished company :-(!

Archana- OK, you win this round, but I am difficult to beat in the stupidity marathon.
