I’m an idiot.
Doc Mom, sign me up for your idiot of the week would you?
Chris and I went to his parents home in Brantford Ontario (home of the Telephone, and Wayne Gretzky’s home town). We were there to celebrate our Canadian Thanks Giving.
It was a typical holiday family gathering – parents, aunts and uncles and siblings … uh no, there wasn’t any siblings. Chris’ two sisters and their husbands were supposed to be there but they didn’t show up.
We visited for a while then we sat down to a meal of –
- Maple Ham – I do NOT like Maple, I’m not a good Canadian
- Mashed potatoes
- Mushed I mean mashed turnips – not a fav
- A combo dish of baked candied turnip and sweet potatoes
- Two types of stuffing – I luv stuffing (get your minds out of the gutter)
- Three types of cranberry (jellied, whole and some kind of cranberry and marmalade mix?)
- some red wine
- A tiny slice of Chocolate caramel brownie cheese cake and a scoop of maple (yuck!) walnut ice cream.
Oh yes I also had a beer before dinner and one after it too.
After a bit more visiting, we snuck into a neighbors house that is under construction to see how the huge house was coming along. When I say snuck, I mean just about everyone that was at the dinner went to the empty shell of a house. Then Chris’ dad decided he wanted to take us to lovely downtown Brantford to show us the changes that are taking place there. I took some pictures since it has a quaint small town feel to it.
Then we visited for a little longer and then since we were taking Chris’ Uncle back home to Toronto we decided to hit the road.
We stopped at a Tim Hortons to get some coffee for the trip as we were leaving town. I don’t like drinking my coffee when it’s hot. I kind of like it best luke warm. So I opened it up, and sipped a bit. I was sitting in the backseat and I didn’t have a cup holder so I rested the coffee cup between my legs.
I almost never sleep in the car but I guess the turkey, full tummy, wine and beer got to me and I fell asleep for at least half an hour.
I woke up when my husband pulled off the highway and headed towards his Uncles home. My head was leaning far to the right. I blinked a few times “Where am I?” and “Why is my mouth wet?” Ew I was drooling! Yeah, my head was at such an angle that I must have drooled while I was asleep. I drooled enough that my shoulder was a bit damp too. Ew.
But that’s not why I’m an idiot.
Remember that coffee?
No, it didn’t spill. It must have continued to stand while it rested between my legs and I slept, BUT and this is a big but, it either sloshed a bit or the hot coffee steam made my pants wet.
Yeah, I woke up and discovered that I had Coffee Crotch. LOL And no I didn’t pee myself. Yes I’m sure. It was just the front and a bit of my pant legs that were damp and smelling strongly of coffee. Needless to say I had a shower and a change of clothes when we got home. No more coffee crotch for me.
I’m always doing some silly thing. Hopefully that was the dumbest thing I end up doing this month.
It’s click and comment Monday and yeah, I don’t have a renter, but please feel free to visit one of the links in my blogroll ( My blogroll is rolled up to the left under Extra Helpings) or maybe visit Doctor Mom since I linked to her at the beginning of this post. Then you can see her Idiot of the week Candidates. Anyway, visit someone and leave a comment, then visit their renter or someone on their blogroll and leave a comment there. Do this at least five times to spread the bloggy love.
