Walk down hall with coffee mug in one hand, soda can from son’s room in other. One goes into microwave, one goes into recycle bin. Get the two confused. Run like Baywatch-slow-mo as realization sets in. Get there just in time to rescue aluminum can from inside the microwave. Emit “phew” dodging-bullet noise.
PS I couldn’t find a clean version of the Baywatch-slow-motion run to post, so here’s a slow-mo ninja cat instead. Enjoy!
Put in coffee grounds. Forget to put water into coffeemaker. Turn on. Wait one minute. Wonder why it’s not perking. Open lid. Pour in water. Poof! A puff of air like a glaucoma test on steroids. Duck! Bob! Weave! Flying coffee grounds, incoming! Get pinged repeatedly. Feels like hot sand on a beach. Emit semi-French words not permissible on most blogs. Consider tea instead.
