A Sad Turn of Events

The day began great and the weather was perfect, what could go wrong? I still had to go in to the office, but I had nothing planned for the evening, so I was hoping for a little time outdoors with my husband.

Lunchtime came and I headed out to run an errand and then decided to grab a bite to eat out since I was still on crutches. I was down the road from Sonic and a chocolate milkshake sounded perfect, so off I went for lunch and a shake. Then it was back to work I went, happily sipping on my shake….it was good.

I got work and looked at the time. I needed to head back in so i unfurled myself from the car and began the long hobbling walk in. I had my lunch sack with my shake in my left hand and my purse slung over my right shoulder when I heard a ripping sound. Before I could stop myself I had taken another step and I heard the bag tear. To my dismay the shake went with it and the top popped off spilling chocolate onto the sidewalk.

I had been standing, but I dropped down to the ground and rescued what was left of my shake and called a co-worker to come and rescue me. I’m so glad no one saw me spill or fall! However, watching the liquid chocolate slowly trickle down the sidewalk was a truly sad sight indeed.

Oh what’s a girl to do?! Thankfully there is an Breyers vanilla and almond ice cream bar at home with my name on it! Come on 5 o’clock!
