cocoa = death



you know how sometimes monday mornings seem painful and unnecessary? yeah, my monday was like that.

this morning i got up a little early to begin mixing a cake. tonight we're going to dinner at a friend's house and i offered to bring dessert, but i knew i wouldn't have a ton of time after work to bake the cake. wanting to save time, i decided to make the batter this morning and then just throw it in the oven at 5 p.m.

7:20 a.m. i grabbed a brand new can of cocoa powder out of the cupboard. it was vacuum-sealed so i went to pull off the top -- and it exploded ALL. OVER. ME. all over my clothes, hair, face, kitchen, floor.

of course i had the presence of mind to tell b to get the camera ["this would make a great blog!"] but mostly i was pissed for 10 minutes. i got back in the shower, finished getting ready, picked a new outfit and still made it to work on time by 8 a.m. i am STILL finding cocoa in the weirdest places...like my belly button. and inside my nose. yuck.



[oh yeah, my hair is darker now. it's not done in this photo, but you get the idea.]

this cake better be freaking amazing.

I know it wasn't funny at the time, but that has totally happened to me with yogurt. So glad you took a pic! Your face is priceless.

That is one powerfully packed container of cocoa!!! Are you sure you didn't just turn it upside down over your head in the process of taking off the plastic? And in your belly button!?!? That is impressive! Props to that! I'm amazed that you still made the cake mix, showered, got ready, and made it to work on time!! You're quick!

I love the pic. If you had just made the recipe I gave you, this wouldn't have happened. Hate me now?
