An Explosion Here at WoogsWorld!

Between the optimist and the pessimist, the difference is droll:

The optimist sees the doughnut; the pessimist the hole.

I woke up yesterday morning and did the zombie shuffle to the freezer, to fetch some bread to make lunch for the Woogettes.  I was greeted with this….

It would appear that I had forgotten that I had placed a mini can of diet coke in there, and the whole thing exploded. The top had come clean off, and there were diet coke stalagmites on the roof of the freezer. I rolled my eyes and shut the door.

What a fucking idiot.

Later that afternoon, Mr Woog came in and found me lying on the couch enjoying a back spasm, when he said…. “What is that shit in the freezer?”

I told him it was the result of leaving a can of diet coke in there overnight. He eye rolled me and walked out.

This morning, the boys were in the kitchen, going about their usual morning routine of fighting, nagging and shoe searching, when Horatio asked.. “Gross… what is in the freezer…”

I was quite calm. “Well. I left a mini can of diet coke in there overnight on Monday, and it exploded. So that is almost like a diet coke slushy that I made…. by accident”

Later I went and checked. The mini can diet coke explosion is still there. And I just cannot be assed to sort it out. Do I have to do everything around here?

I opened the fridge to get the cheese, and Sunday nights Thai takeaway green curry fell from the door. The lid came off as my feet, encased in complicated leather sandals, became the cold, saucy mess’s resting place. As it oozed in between each toe, I lost my shit.

And that, my friends, is why today already sucks. And why I am not going back into the kitchen today. I am seeing the hole.

What has been your most challenging day recently?

Is it as pathetic as mine?
