I’m good at being social – My Geminian, former performing athlete self seems to have that mastered but…it doesn’t always jive with what I WANT to be doing. I’d rather hang out with the cats most of the time. Frustratingly, they tend to be as introverted as I am!
Everyone is always so quick to say there’s five seconds in which you can pick up your food an be safe. I think as a figure skater who dropped food on the floor during summer training (when the rink was open but the snack bar wasn’t) the “five second rule” was more in effort to salvage even the tiniest morsel of food…lest I (like one of our cats claims an hour before dinner time) waste immediately away to a pile of skeletal remains.
The sad reality is, though…it happens much quicker. I’m not sure who assumed germs are so nice-ie-nice but, hello, they aren’t exactly counting down on our behalf. . . E.g.: “Hang on, Irv! Kid didn’t realize he dropped that – let’s give him an opportunity to pick it up first!”
No…they’re just like our vacuum…er…cat…. They’re on those crumbs double-time (sorry to burst any dreamy bubbles.)
(For the record, that didn’t stop me. The lofty claim of germy kindness remaining my scientific excuse so I didn’t (not) starve to death. 😉 )
I have an entire folder dedicated to the food photo bombs my husband has managed to pull off…
But…I wouldn’t have it any other way because we have SO much fun, and humor in Life and partnership is so integral.
Surround yourself with people who make you laugh, who pull you out of your comfort zone, your habits, yourself and your mind… Laugh and love, because Life is amazing when you inject a little fun.
I think it’s possibly that when you are ultra-attuned, these kinds of things grate on you more…
Funny…but also murder-provoking!
I almost fell out of the chair laughing at this one. It’s almost exactly like Pinterest when there are incredibly, and frankly abnormally graceful, recipe results with an “easy recipe” paired with it… Doesn’t happen. ISN’T that simple, people.
Nice try with the “simple” breakfast bull too.
