Chili, everywhere

(I am using PW-style writing for this post.)
I made chili for dinner yesterday.  It had been in the crockpot all day long and the house smelled so good when we got home.  Josh wanted to get a few things done outside before it got too dark so our meal was delayed a bit and I was really hungry.  As I picked up our bowls of hot chili to take them to the dining room, I dropped one of the bowls.  Chili. Went. EVERYWHERE!  Of course Titus was at my feet so he had one entire side of his body covered as well.  I dropped the bowl right by the sink, and chili made it all the way across the room to the opposite wall.  Josh ate by himself as Titus and I cleaned the kitchen.  Yes, I let the dog help me clean.
Then I cleaned him.
Then I got my carpet cleaner out.
Then I realized just how much I hate the fact that we have carpet in our kitchen.
Then I ate.
Then I cleaned some more.
I was in a really bad mood all night long.  I thought a cookie dough truffle would help.  It was delicious, but I was still grumpy.
Then I went to bed.
Then I woke up and found even more chili on the wall that I missed last night.
Then I ate another cookie dough truffle.
Titus loves chili.
The end.

Oh no! It was not quite as bad as your mess but a couple of months ago I dropped a plate of roast beef with mashed potatoes and gravy in the living room. At least you had truffles to soften the blow :-)

I love that you ate a cookie dough truffle or two! When are you ripping up the carpet? :)

HA! I just got to read this since I just got back from Christmas vacation! I think this may have been the best day of Titus' life! How was there any chili left on the wall the next day? I thought Titus would be all over that! I think the cookie dough truffles helped. Happy New Year!

Ha ha ha! How did I miss this one earlier?

I think I posted once about my "chili everywhere" incident. But mine was a result of my own stupidity and not knowing that you don't put a crock pot on the stove burner.... :)

In related news, have you ever seen a crock pot EXPLODE?
