Hi/Low Game SOL #15/31

I am joining Two Writing Teachers for the Slice of Life Story Challenge.  I appreciate this space for writers to tell their stories and connect with each other.





Every night at dinner, we play the high/low game.  We take turns telling about the best part of our day and the worst part.  Each person's turn ends up becoming a whole new conversation.  I had had a pretty good day today and was thinking that I might not have a low...that is until about 5 minutes before dinner was ready.  I picked up the plastic container that had chili in it to put it back into the microwave for a quick reheat.

I was not prepared for what happened next....



Yep, the whole container spilled all over our 1960s gold speckled counter.  Ugh!!

  1. Bummer!!! I hate when I do stuff like this! Was it salvageable or pizza two nights this week?

    1. Ha! I think pizza two nights in a row seems a good idea.

    2. Nope, it was not salvageable. I had some left over spaghetti sauce that worked in a pinch.

  2. That is the makings of a messy dinner. I once dropped a Thanksgiving turkey and another time a deep dish pizza!

    1. Oh no! Was your turkey able to be saved?

  3. The rest of the day sounds amazing. You know what they say, no need to cry over spilled chili. Wait, that's not right. ;o)

    1. The photo is funny (if it isn't your chili) your comments Cathy are funny. Thanks ladies I'm ending my day with a high!

    2. It was Keith who was crying. The chili was for him. :)

  4. I wonder if the chili stained those vintage counters? I hope not!
