Don’t cry over spilled mac.

25 Mar

I had an extraordinarily lovely Saturday, filled with belated birthday celebrations with friends from all over. Oxford Comma lived up to his previously granted title of Best Boyfriend Ever by organizing a successful party populated by friends who all lived up to their titles of Best Friends Ever. There were Muppet cupcakes and homemade Cheesy Blasters. ‘Nuf said.

Anyway, this is all prefacing the fact that I had a wicked hangover on Sunday (red wine plus chocolate moonshine… good decisions) and all I want in the world right now is buckets of instant macaroni with processed powdered cheese sauce. So I brought in some Annie’s to work for lunch. Perfection.

UNTIL! While on my way to the kitchen to microwave the mac, I dropped my bowl and all of its dry pasta contents on the undoubtedly disgusting floor. The sad little mac elbows stared at me helplessly from amongst the ceramic chards.

“You can scoop us up and microwave us in your coffee mug!” They seemed to implore. “Rescue us from the fate of the garbage can! We will be safe in your tummy!

Obviously consuming repulsive carpet residue peppered with crunchy bits of ceramic bowl was out of the question.

But for one second – just a second – I considered.
