Today I’m thankful for… OH CRAP!!! I spilled my coffe while driving!!!
Today I’m thankful for being prepared (& for my Tide To Go stain remover).
This morning could’ve been an epic disaster as I neared Arcadia on my way to to Eau Claire. I hit a bump while drinking my coffee and immediately feared for the worst. The coffee that had almost made it to my lips was now making itself to home on the front of my clean white shirt.
Fortunately some great coaching, years of messy eating (my dad always said that if I really liked a girl that I should never eat in front of her!) and my preparedness saved the day and thwarted the coffee invasion on my shirt.
Without hesitation I grabbed a couple of paper towels, put one inside my shirt and held the other to the outside of my shirt, and pulled over at the next road. After dabbing off as much as I could I grabbed my trusted friend from out of the console:
After a couple of minutes of frantic scrubbing (and maybe a handful of prayers) the coffee was gone. Another 10 minutes or so later my shirt was dry and good as new!
(Now if there were only a way to eliminate seatbelt wrinkles during the middle of the day… 😉)
This morning could’ve been an absolute disaster, there’s not much worse than rolling in to work with a huge coffee stain on my shirt. I’m thankful that I was prepared with the tools I needed. While it’s never fun, I’m glad that I’ve learned from my food spill crisis management encounters of the past. Lastly, to whoever invented the Tide To Go stick, thank you for saving the day!!!
