stopped at the grocery store on the way home last night

Usually I bring everything into the house myself, but Andre and Carol (mom’s sister) spending 3 days and 2 nights here, so of course Andre wants to help. Which is all fine.

Until Andre decides to bring FOUR gallons of milk in by himself at once, thinking he could do it because he’d seen me do it plenty of times (hook your fingers in the handles right and you can carry two in each hand).

I didn’t see him do it because I was putting stuff away. Didn’t even know what was going on until I turned around after hearing something slam onto the counter behind me.

All four gallons split open.

Do you have any idea how much liquid can fit in four 1-gallon jugs?!


We both just stood there staring for a moment because it was like no WAY that just happened.

So after a really long work day and going grocery shopping, it took me 45 minutes to clean up the mess before I could get myself something to eat.
