Consequences

easter m and ms Pictures, Images and Photos

Last night when I got home from work, I didn't put my shoes away. So this morning, when I was in a hurry to get out the door, I couldn't find them. Instead of the black penny loafers I wanted to wear, I threw on a pair of black slingback heels.

On the way to work, I nibbled on some pastel-colored M&Ms I had hidden in the car so the kids wouldn't find them and eat them all. I decided I'd better leave the M&Ms in the car so I wouldn't eat them all, which was sure to happen if I took them into my office with me.

But those little candies were calling to me after I finished my lunch of half a Starbucks breakfast sandwich and some blackberry yogurt. Honestly, I didn't even try to fight it. Instead, I grabbed my keys and headed to my car to retrieve the M&Ms.

Well, apparently, Karma did not want me to have those M&Ms because as I approached the car, my ankle turned in my slingback heels and I went sprawling across the parking lot. If only I had put my penny loafers away last night, I wouldn't have been scraping blacktop and dirt out of my palms.

So I did what anyone in my situation would have done -- I got up, opened the car and consoled myself with some M&Ms.

oh.my.gosh. I've done that. Only I was wearing "slides" back in the 80's...slipped on ice in a parking lot, landed spread eagle on the pavement/snow, my bf at the time couldn't stop laughing to help me up! Oh and did I mention I was wearing a dress? At least you had M&Ms. Man, I wish I'd have been there. Oh not to see the fall though--to share the M&Ms.

Sorry to giggle at your expense. But, oh what we won't go through for chocolate. Glad you had the M&M's to help you feel better after your fall. I've found that M&M's came make a lot of hurts go away.
