This morning I was rushing out of the house, running a bit late for city council. I was juggling several items in my hands, including my laptop, purse, tupperware of homemade turkey chili, keys and jacket.
I got to my car, opened the door and leaned in to put my belongings inside...and guess which of those items fell out of my hand, popped open and splatted all over the garage floor and just inside the edge of the car? That's right. That would be the chili.
Fortunately, it splattered in a pattern flowing away from me and didn't land on my clothes or person. But I did have to clean up several spots on the seat, door and floorboard of my car.
I guess I now have an excuse to buy lunch today.
