(There’s an accordion in my closet. Please don’t tell anyone...)
"Mom! The turkey blew up” Dept
(I’ve never had to scrape scorch marks off the ceiling. So far.)
But big words are HARD! Dept
(Because ABC thinks you’re dumb. Or maybe because they are.)
Ah...Brigid minds me of the time Mom was making a chocolate pie but couldn't find the double-boiler to melt the chocolate in. So she tried two saucepans instead. Unfortunately they were kind of a close fit. And she wasn't paying attention when the water boiled in the lower one. Can you say "steam explosion"?
Including behind the furnace (which was in a louvered-door closet in the kitchen) when we took it out years later.
We still laugh about it, Mom included. But it sure wasn't funny at the time.
