    Holy shit. You know that feeling of food "going down the wrong tube?" And it hurts like hell?

    I just had that while eating some mac n cheese - it hurt more than it has ever hurt when I have done it in the past. I slid off the chair, went to my knees, and then WHOOSH got super light headed like I was going to pass out and I fell face first onto the floor. I've never had that feeling come on so strong and so fast before, usually its a slow build from lightheaded to "I need to sit down". Rooster said I was actually twitching face down on the floor, and I scared the piss out of him.

    All because I forgot how to swallow mac n cheese. I'm now drinking dinner instead :lol:

    I was today years old when I learned that actor Peter Sarsgaard is in fact not a Skarsgard. He totally looks like he could be part of that family!

    @T-Rex Im halfway convinced there’s something anatomically wrong with me because of how often I “almost choke to death” on water... last time was so scary I literally made N google “can adults dry drown” LOL.

    I watched that movie, Fried Green Tomatoes, and Mermaids like 30 times each while I had chicken pox in the 4th grade.

    It's close to 6pm and I just nearly said "good morning!" to someone in my cheerful/exaggerated work greeting voice. I kind of just trailed off after the good and I redirected and told D to say hi...:oops:

    Me: spends hours looking over curtain options and figuring out whether Command hooks can actually hold them up and measuring things before finally ordering.

    Also me: forgets own height and doesn't consider step ladder during multiple buying sprees at Target, Big Lots, etc.

    Today I was putting some pruned branches in the yard waste bin. Almost stepped on a baby bunny hiding in them. It crashed into my shoe a couple times as it tried to make a panicked escape. Did I play it cool?

    No, I screamed like a lady in a Hitchcock film.

    Bunny appeared ok and made an escape, btw.

    Reminds me of when I was pruning my peonies and a butterfly flew at my face. I jumped like five feet. :lol:

    Gross flappy assholes.

    Uh so back to my curtains. I uncharacteristically depended on a single source for a particular measurement. Now I have to return 3 curtain rods to Amazon and buy new ones. :wall:

    Was trying to lookup A’s cousin’s baby registry. Searched forever and finally texted her sister to ask what I was doing wrong. She was like “Oh idk it should come up under Cousin Married”. Omfg his cousin has been married FIVE YEARS and I was looking her up by maiden name.

    I didn’t just walk into a cabinet door right at the height of my forehead. Nope, not me, didn’t happen...

    I just figured out how to change the refrigerator’s water filter. We’ve had the fridge 7 years. I’m proud, ashamed, and a little grossed out.

    We changed ours when we moved in and the previous owner had put the filter in the slot while still in the cardboard box.

    P is back in town! We finally did the furniture shopping we were supposed to do last time and included some wine for dinner.

    We forgot the wine at the register. :wall:

    Cone of shame for W. “Do shower curtain liners come in more than one size??” Guess who is going back to Target right now because he already threw out the old one?

    There is a “shower stall” size that’s less wide than a standard tub/shower version. :tmyk:
