Uh Oh

I goofed. I messed up. I could be in hot water. I can already feel the burning bubbles. Himself will not be pleased. Actually, I am not pleased. There are several possible resolutions to this predicament I find myself in... The question is will I live long enough to decide which is the better choice?

I went to the grocery store. I bought groceries. I bought a few "extras" for baking for Thanksgiving. That ran the bill up a bit. I bought a few gift cards for Christmas. That ran the bill up a lot! My plan was to write a check from my account to Himself to cover the cost of the gift cards since they are not part of the true grocery bill. However, I was in a hurry. I was experiencing an urgent call from nature and needed to get out of there and get home. Then it happened. The young cashier who was obviously new to his job was taking forever to enter the gift cards. He entered some of them incorrectly. Like $100 more per card incorrectly. I didn't catch it until he totaled the bill and that urgent call from nature almost became a deluge. What did I do? Decided that I couldn't wait for him to take the time to correct everything and got the hell out of there.

Yup, I am in very hot water! But I really am a good person, and my intentions were good. Doesn't that count for something? Do you think bladder weakness is a good defense?

I'll be a character witness for you, if you need one. OR You can remind him of how lucky he is to have you as his bride.

I think bladder weakness is a darn good defense indeed!

Besides, I'll bet he'll understand!

weak bladders are always a good reason, especially in public places. he will understand... if not, feed him enough exlax in a chocolate cake right before you go out into public... he will understand then.

Oh yes, weak bladders are definitely a good excuse. Since several major surgeries I no longer have a "hollow leg." Anyhooo, I'd forgive you! Besides, you post the most *adorable* rodent pix! :)
