Screw the 5 second rule

I had two French bread pizzas for dinner last night, even though one of them fell cheese-side down on the floor. I am sure it was OK; it passed the 5 minute rule.

Yeah, I have my own set of rules. I don't even begin to react until after the 5 second rule expires. Then I need time to curse and whine to God. Then I have to tell Claren to stay away (not that she'd eat it when I am right there sitting on top of it but just to be sure). Then I have to figure out to pick hot food up from the floor from my GD wheelchair. Then I have to pick said hot food up.

Five minutes is hardly enough time.

If it makes you feel any better, I took Joe to Einstein Bros. Bagel and met Mo for coffee one morning. I bought him a huge round m&m cookie to entertain him while we talked. Said cookie was then dropped on the nasty floor under the table, where I couldn't find it right away. What did I do? Blow if off, brush it off and give it back to him. Mother of the year right here.

Nice, I won't feel so bad then.

i bet the pizza was extra good with the layer of Claren hair on it! i once saw Mary lick icecream off Meghan's face (Meg was about 10 months old).

I remember that, too, and it was not too hairy because I had just vacuumed up some cheese that fell off the pizza pre-cooking with my new wet-dry dustbuster.

OK, in defense of myself, it was ice cream! and she was a BABY! I would not do that now!

Meg was such a cute baby, too. Now you have a thug hockey goalie who is No. 2 in the Middlesex league.

I admired Mary so much that I did it myself to Callie. Jim was so grossed out.
Send me the picture of Meg -- she only sent it to callie and matt and probably em.
