do you know what this is?
it is a somewhat exploded carboy.
earlier today, i came home after a morning out andwhen i entered my home, my first thought was, "wow, it smells like a bakery in here."
then i stopped and realized i had not baked.
i closed the door, peered into the kitchen and discovered that the latest batch of beer, my beloved beer-master hubby made, had indeed escaped (partially) the carboy.
beer oozing across the floor, spray from semi-explosion spread across the kitchen, up walls, on cupboard doors and so on and so on.
let me clarify, not just liquid, but chunky hoppy bits and yeasty sugar liquid.
basically a mess.
not a mess to be ignored.
quickly, i called said beer master at work (he is a teacher with a so-called prep period) to demand he come home, but alas the man was playing basketball and i could not reach him...so i did the next best thing.
i fired off an email to him explaining the situation and declaring my dutiful wife stance.
of course, i spent the next 30 minutes or so cleaning, mopping and wiping up the mess.
let it be said that i am in no way diss'n my husband, it really wasn't his fault the beer wanted to escape the carboy but he was the man who made the beer and placed it under my table in my kitchen and he was also the man unable to clean up the mess, so...
on a related note, the sermon at church yesterday was about patience.
coincidence, i think not.
lesson to be learned i think so.
somedays you just need to throw your hands up in the air,
say a prayer
and calmly carry on.
