Izzie lends a helping hand
OOO There's more?
After he spent an hour opening and playing with his presents he took a nap and the rest of us got ready to have Christmas Day lunch/dinner with the Pearson's.
I was in charge of bringing a broccoli casserole & my mom was in charge of the dessert. Off we go to Sue's house with presents in hand.
Brian, Jax & I are the first ones to arrive. We hang out with Sue for a bit and Jax starts to get cranky... time for the afternoon nap. I go into Brian's old room and am putting him down when I hear Sue say, "We are also having Anabelle's casserole." Uh Oh!!! Remember what I was in charge of? Ugh yeah I kinda forgot to make it!! Seriously! I run to the kitchen and I see Brian with a look only he can give him like, "You goofed and I am loving it!" Sue was very nice and was like don't worry about it we have potatoes and Kathy is bringing such and such. Well, that wasn't good enough for me I was told to make something and by golly I was going to do. I jumped in the car to go to Safeway to buy what I needed. Well, it's Christmas, Safeway isn't open on Christmas! Crap what was I going to do? Luckily my mom was running late and hadn't left her house yet. She was going to bring the ingredients. When she arrives half an hour later I whip up this broccoli casserole & put it in the oven. Thank goodness there is really nothing to this thing. About 25 minutes later I check to see if its ready. I pull rack out, take the glass lid off & put it on the stove. "I think it needs a few more minutes." With the oven mitt on my left hand I pick up the hot, glass lid with my right hand! Yup, that's right I pick up a scalding hot lid with my bare hand. What's a girl to do, but to drop the lid. It hits the ceramic bowl the food is in, slides off the oven door and shatters on the tile floor! I could not believe that happened in front of the entire family! Everyone was watching in slow motion. Once the lid shatter into a million pieces everyone jumped into action. They were so sweet, all except Brian who just kept laughing at me. I took care of my hand (this wasn't the first time I had done something like this) and dinner was on its way... broccoli casserole and all!
Oh, you think that's the only humiliation I suffered this weekend? Wrong! The next day Brian and I got out for a much needed movie date. We went to see The Curious Case of Benjamin Button... I only recommend this movie if you can spare 3 hours of your life and you enjoy a slow movie. Not our best pick.
When the movie was over, Brian and I went to our respective bathrooms and said "Meet you in the front." I come out of the bathroom and see Brian standing in the lobby. I walk over to him, grab his butt and say, "Let's go babe." I can't remember what I heard next, but I look back to see this man WAS NOT BRIAN!! He says to me, "I don't think I know you." I was mortified! I quickly stutter, "Oh no, you look just like my husband. I am so sorry." All the while, i am trying not to look at him because I was so humiliated. There is a lady standing not to far from us who sees the whole thing and she is dying laughing. I am telling you this guy looked just like Brian, same height, same black shirt, jeans and tennis shoes. The guys even wore the same square glasses! Only problem... Brian doesn't wear glasses anymore, oops forgot that little detail about my husband!
I finally see Brian, not anywhere near where I fondled a stranger and he takes one look at me and says, "What did you do!?" Do I tell him? I wonder. Well, he found this absolutely hilarious and I don't think will ever let me live it down. From now on I am not smacking anyone in the booty that's for sure!
