The Hyena Habit

So I was on my way to hear The Utah Symphony Orchestra and my daughter and I stopped to grab something to nosh. 
We zipped into Smith's because they have Better Cheddars— one of my daughter's favorites — and no one else in town has the smarts to stock them. 
SOOOO . . . . . .

We ran in, snagged Better Cheddars, 




Grabbed yogurt — mine was Yoplait Whipped Key Lime Pie, and my daughter's was some sort of Greek yogurt. 




Then we passed a display of Lofthouse soft sugar cookies. Mmmm. One of my faves and I HAD to pile them in my arms too.


(WITH ORANGE FROSTING)

And of course we needed some Simply Orange orange juice to drink along with our fine array of snacks


So I headed down the aisle toward the checkout and 

CRASH!

I dropped my yogurt, the seal cracked, and it splattered on the floor. 


WHAT?!

You've got to be kidding. But we laughed, cleaned it up, and proceeded on down the aisle. 


CRASH!

Ahhgh! My orange juice!

HA, HA, HA, HA, HEE! 
All I could do was stare at it and laugh!


Isn't it beautiful? It almost looks like The Great Lakes.

So here's what I'm thinking— if you make a mistake and goof something up, just smile, dust yourself off, and LAUGH!

Oh— And make sure to announce: CLEAN-UP ON AISLE THREE!

Oh funny. At least you held on to what was important - the cookies. They look delicious.

This is too funny! You guys are adorable. That OJ spill kind of does look like the great lakes. The store clerks must've thought you were so silly taking pictures of the spille OJ and the aisle sign. hahaha

I really have to work at lightening up and reminding myself that we all make mistakes. Glad you could laugh this off.

That is too funny! I've totally been there, it's so embarrassing, but your right it's always best to laugh it off.

Love the pictures! :)
