Tonight I Scrub the Kitchen

Why, you ask?

Well, I had just taken the ham out of the oven, and sliced up a gigantic sandwich on a hoagie bun with really fresh tomatoes. I grabbed a Dr. Pepper out of the fridge and started popping open the tab. It exploded. Right in my face. And all over the kitchen, the walls, the floor, the cabinets.

I wiped up everything last night and mopped the floor. This morning the floor is sticky, so I obviously didn't do such a good job. The coffee pot is sticky. The canisters are sticky. The stove is sticky. The cabinets are sticky. So I have to scrub down everything tonight.

I had to wash my glasses three times to get the sticky off. Then I got in the shower and just rinsed my hair without shampooing it. This morning, you guessed it, sticky.

Kinda makes me wonder what that stuff is doing to my insides........

Oh, this is funny. When I posted the winner on the 10-10-10 give-away, I just noticed that my post was made at 10:10 a.m. That was purely chance. Reminds me of the time in the early '70s that I ran in the 7-Eleven by my house and grabbed a couple of things. Then I wrote the check, on 7/11 to 7-Eleven for $7.11. I wonder if something strange happened to me on that day, too!

Yuck! That sounds awful...good luck with your cleaning.
I've never had a Dr. Pepper...but it seems it is more than a bit sugar in it :)

Oh, dear. I know how you feel. When my kids were little they spilled a gallon of apple cider on my kitchen floor. Sticky, sticky, sticky!

Another reason I don't drink soda. My husbands uses coke to clean our golf clubs, that ought to tell you something! Just pours out some in bucket and stands the clubs in, they come out shiny and bright. Sorry about the clean up!

I have dropped a can of Coke and it exploded. I mopped and mopped and mopped. Of course your shoes are sticky. It seems to go on forever. I think you just keep diluting the sugar and spreading it around.

Coke products tend to have a lot of pressure in them. And they are messy.

So funny! Just yesterday my husband dropped a can of Dr. Pepper on the floor and it exploded! The can split right down the side from top to bottom. I was out of the house and he did a pretty good job cleaning up, but you guessed it, the floor is sticky. I need to pull the mop out and go back over it.

OH YUCK! Hope Penny didn't get Dr. Peppered...I remember dropping a glass 1/2 gallon jug of orange juice when I was in high school...OMG what a sticky mess...we were finding sticky spots for a month. Every time Mom and I thought we had gotten it all, we'd find another sticky spot. YUCK!

Oh man! What a mess. Maybe you should switch to diet. Then if it explodes at least it isn't sticky. :D
