My Last Words On The Day Of My Retirement

My Last Words On The Day Of My Retirement

A Disaster In The Kitchen

A Disaster In The Kitchen

Yesterday I came home with my hands full. A chopping board tipped over and hit a bottle of olive oil. The bottle crashed to the floor. It smashed into many pieces. The kitchen floor was inundated with olive oil. I had a mess on my hands. I picked up all the pieces of glass. I got a big mop and cleaned up massive amounts of olive oil. After all of my work the kitchen floor was still slippery with…
