Not Me Monday

One of my favorite bloggers, MckMama, has a great feature called Not Me Monday.  It’s always so entertaining, and I decided to give it a try today!

When I discovered that all of my cups were in the dishes a couple of weeks ago, I did not pour orange juice into a wine glass to drink for breakfast!  I always do all my dishes immediately after using them, so I would never find that all the cups were dirty.  And if I did find myself in this situation, I would absolutely drop everything to wash the dishes right then, rather than making such an absurd choice in order to avoid a household chore!

I was walking the dog one last time before bed, and in the dark, couldn’t find the…stuff.  There was someone on one of the balconies nearby, but I’m not self-conscious!  So I did not pretend to pick something up with the poop bag, and tie an empty poop bag shut, and walk over to the garbage and throw away an empty poop bag.  Not me!!!

In September, I did not leave my travel coffee mug at school until it got moldy.  Ew, I would never do such a thing!  Then, I absolutely did not throw it away to avoid the gross chore of washing and thoroughly disinfecting it.  Now, I have not ventured to every Wal-Mart in the city looking for a replacement, as they seem to have stopped carrying my beloved $4 travel mug with the stainless steel interior!  (Mugs with stainless steel interiors don’t absorb the flavors, and also, there is some talk that putting hot food in plastic containers releases carcinogenic toxins.  Mugs with stainless steel interiors also appear to run $15-$30 in most cases.  I want a $4 mug like I found last time!)

As a result of the said mold incident…er, the denied mold incident…I have absolutely not stopped at Scooters or Starbucks on 90% of my workdays!  I know exactly how much that is a waste of money, and I would never allow myself to become so addicted…er, fond of blended caramel lattes and caramel macchiatos!

    By the way, stainless steel is one of the easiest surfaces to get gross stuff off. I’d have thrown away the plastic and saved the metal.

    cute! oh by the way, I have poured “just juice” into a fancy glass just because I felt like drinking from a fancy glass and I too have absolutely {NOT} NEVER pretended to pick up poop at the dog park cause I couldn’t locate the real thing and as far as a dish getting a little mold–I am true LIVING proof that it can be cleaned adequately:) However, I do assure you I would absolutely never iron just the collar or just the front of a shirt to wear to work even though it is the only part that would show. Furthermore I would never be so lazy as to do such partial ironing with a curling iron! That was fun.
