    Eta: same effect as if someone had tied my shoelaces together as a prank. I swear I'm cursed.

    And ever have one of those slow-mo horror realizations that you know what's happened but it's already in motion so all you can think is "oh god this is going to hurt + oh my god EVERYBODY IS GOING TO SEE THIS as my milk goes flying"? Yeah, that.

    If anybody is still looking for a plot bunny, there you go.
    If it makes you feel any better, I sent milk flying yesterday myself. Put the handcarrier on the self-checkout shelf, started unloading, didn't realize the shelf didn't support the whole carrier and the milk was on the unsupported side. SPLAT.

    Luckily, it stayed unexploded, but man, it was loud and kinda embarrassing.

    Hope your knees are okay.

    The insane who believe they are sane are crazy. The sane who know they are insane are writers.
