Have you ever had a… “face palm” moment? As in, oh-man-I-feel-so-dumb moment?
I just had one.
Last week on Black Friday, I bought this Spiralizer from amazon. I thought about it a lot when I decided to go on a more paleo diet, but since I don’t like having a one-task gadget around the house, I was hesitant on purchasing it. John and I like to only buy things — especially kitchen gadgets — if they can serve more than one purposes. We move around lot and our kitchen just never seem to be big enough. Also, the Spiralizer is usually priced around $35-$40, which was more than I was willing to pay for it. BUT, last week, Black Friday dropped the price to $20, so I bought it on whim. Well, I bought it after watching 10+ youtube videos on it.
The item was supposed to arrive on Wednesday, so I was looking forward to it ALL weekend. It arrived on Tuesday, and John bought it from our front door to our dining table. As I was preparing for dinner that night, I moved the package on the floor next to our usual recycle pile, thinking to myself that I would open the item later.
Wednesday morning came, and I saw the most amazing creativelive online class ever! I thought about my Spiralizer and was thinking of bringing the package to our study to open it while I watched the live stream.
Thursday night came. Since Friday is our trash day, I asked John if he would help take out the trash. He of course agreed, because he loves me
Saturday morning came. I thought about my Spiralizer again, and went to our study to look for my package. Goodness, I was so excited to open it up and finally spiralize some vegetables! But, when I went in there, my package disappeared.
I looked in our storage closet, our kitchen, our bedroom, and our study again. Nothing. Na-da. Nope.
And then… was it possible that I never moved the package from our recycle pile to the study? Maybe I only thought about it but never did it? Why did I put it near the recycle pile in the first place?
He heard the distress in my voice and my frantic movements looking for my giant brand-new, perfectly packaged item, so he came over and gave me a big, big bear hug. He suggested that we can just buy a replacement - to which I said “NO,” b/c it’s expensive again. He then said it was a lesson that I can learn from – to which I said “NOOOOO, I’d really.. rather not learn this myself.” And after that? he said, “well, you can blog about it.”
