So, I had to run into the store this afternoon to buy a new fire extinguisher for the kitchen, and darn it all if these things didn't follow me home.
How do they keep doing that? It must be my charming personality. I just wish it worked as well on men.
So, why was I buying a new fire extinguisher? Well, I'll tell you. I was boiling down the turkey carcass for soup, and some of the grease spilled out of the pot. It hit the hot burner and ignited. I tried to smother it with the pot lid, but it just wouldn't smother. I stood there for a second trying to remember what common kitchen item you use to put out grease fires, when I said to myself, "Self, don't let your house burn down. Just use the fire extinguisher."
And that's what I did. Boy, whatever that powder is that they put in those things goes everywhere! And I do mean everywhere. I still haven't gotten it all cleaned up.
This was my Saturday Sky for yesterday
but I watched so much football, I didn't get it posted. And now, it's official. Auburn and Oregon will be playing for the National Championship. LSU will face Texas A&M in the Cotton Bowl, and TCU will go to the Rose Bowl.
If Auburn handles Oregon the way they handled South Carolina, we will have a National Champion from the SEC for the fifth year in a row.
Just one more thing before I head to bed...
HOW BOUT THEM COWBOYS??????
