A series of unfortunate events
I was looking at a recipe card for dinner that night, and as I did, I opened the freezer door to check for an ingredient. As I opened the door, a bazillion things from the top of the freezer came crashing down onto my poor head. (And really, I THOUGHT the top of that freezer was well organized! Apparently not!) I rub my head, grumble, and proceed to pick up the various items and put them away. But then---where is my recipe card? It's nowhere to be found, that's where it is! Somehow, in the mess of all of that stuff falling, I lost my recipe. I don't know if it flew out of my hand somewhere, or if I absent mindedly sat it down someplace strange, but it was gone---still is! So, I called my mother-in-law to get the recipe from her. At least, I meant to. But suddenly, on the other end of the phone, a familiar voice picked up. I couldn't figure out who at my in-law's house this was, so I stupidly said "Um hi, this is Jaime" "Oh, hey Jaime!" I finally recognized my own father's voice, and realized that I had dialed my own parents number by mistake. "Oh, I didn't mean to call you!", I replied rather rudely. "Okay, bye!", my Dad laughed and hung up. When I finally got my mother-in-law on the phone, she said "Don't worry about it, you're pregnant!" At this rate, however, I may have no brain cells left by May!!
