It's teeth cleaning time.
I hate the mint grit dentists
use for polishing.
Then I drive one hour
to another appointment.
Must get home to kids.
Dinner time and too
tired for cooking healthy food.
Frozen pizza--yes!
I heat the oven
and smell burning plastic. What??
An ice cream lid melts.
What a mystery.
Why is this in my oven?
Time for alcohol.

What a laugh you gave me. I know why the lid was in the oven --- two little boys or one absent-minded woman (me) who sometimes puts things in strange places. Oven -- trash aren't they the same?
Have a blessed weekend. :)

I woke up one morning to find the sitter from the night before had left a carton of ice cream ON TOP of the fridge. That was fun to clean up, let me tell ya'.

But yours is a way better story.

Ice Cream Fairies are notorious for not cleaning up after themselves, I am afraid.
