And This Is What I Have To Live With

After I dropped T. and R. off at school on Monday, I stopped by the grocery store to get something for dinner. Mr. Schmitty likes the orange Vitamin Water, so I wanted to buy him a few bottles. I reached up to the top shelf and grabbed a large bottle in each hand.

I suddenly felt something splash on me. The lid on the bottle in my right hand was cracked. I now had sticky orange drink all over my hands, in my hair, and on my jacket.


There happened to be an employee standing by, restocking shelves, so I handed her the broken container.

Upon returning home, I noticed that Mr. Schmitty had recently been there. I gave him a call to say that I was sorry I had missed him. I told him about getting doused with the drink, which had left strands of my hair sticky, hard, and stuck together.

He burst out laughing. I mean he really, REALLY went hysterical.

"Okay, hon, it's not THAT funny," I said.

"I did it!" He shouted into the phone between fits of laughter.

"Huh? You did what?" I asked, totally confused.

"The other night when I went to the grocery store, I dropped a bottle!" He was now sounding like he might hyperventilate.

"YOU broke that bottle? And you put it back?"

"Snort. Uh-Huh! SNORT!"

"You're an idiot."

So basically my husband set a booby trap for me at the grocery store. Only in my life could such a thing happen. This my friends, is a Schmitty Life!

No no WAY! Only you! (or maybe me...I have such "great" luck.) ;)

Chris said...

O.M.G.!! LMAO! That was... I don't even know. I hope he got a good flogging. I'd suggest a great practical joke, but if you're anything like me, you'll forget you set it up and you'll end up on the losing end again.

Oh, that's hilarious! Really, the odds?

Janis said...

OMG that is too funny. What I want to know is was he in uniform while putting the object in question, BACK on the shelf!! LMAO!

Charming Lamb said...

I'm confessing now...I totally laughed at the vision in my head!

Maria said...

That would be the last vitamin water he ever got from me....

Mrs4444 said...

Unbelievable. And he laughed?! I think you should pour orange drink over his head while he is sleeping! :)

Bonnie the Boss said...

What are the odds? I say kick his butt! And dump a coke all over him and see if he likes it.

That is to funny. I hate when people do that. Boo dropped a bottle once, and I hunted someone down to give it to them.

Hope you got it all clean!
