There is nothing like when the kids are helpful, and this was nothing like being helpful!
Thank you to whoever put away the chocolate syrup last night….
…Placing the chocolate syrup onto the top shelf of the refrigerator so that our little ones could not reach it and stage a repeat performance of last month’s Chocolate Syrup Squirting Follies was a brilliant idea. There are still chocolate syrup stains on the sofa and a lovely splatter pattern on the foyer wall that I think will be with us forever.
Much as I appreciate your effort, and I truly do, please allow me to make a suggestion for the next time that you are returning the bottle of chocolate syrup to its chilly home. I would appreciate it greatly if next time you would either place the bottle upright on the shelf or close the lid or, preferably, both.
When I entered our kitchen this morning a dark, oozing puddle flowing out from the bottom of the refrigerator created a site reminiscent of a CSI crime scene. So much so, that it scared the dog. He won’t even go into the kitchen now, which is not an entirely bad thing.
Upon opening the door to the refrigerator to investigate the puddle source I was reminded about something you’ll learn when you grow up. It’s a concept that the chocolate syrup and I are already very familiar with: Gravity is not our friend….
