I shall never again shake my mai tai without the lid.  For forty five seconds.

 

I'm using a lot of alcohol gel on my hands because of the pandemic but I haven't resorted to alcohol showers yet. Aren't Mai Tai showers a bit sticky?

But the question is: would you do it for 30 seconds?

Well, I shake my mai tais for 45 seconds.  And it takes some while for the cold liquid to soak through the oven mitts.

I just *knew* there had to be more to the story...

Whilst chipping accumulated frost deposits from the freezer I noticed red splotches on the ice, and thought some meat had leaked.  I had.

 

But at least it should’ve congealed in the cold. Better than Heparin I would think.

My goodness, JoNorvelle, I do think you need a restful vacation somewhere quiet with no sharp or pointed instruments and someone to make your Mai Tais and preferably wait upon you hand and foot and be responsible for turning on and off electrical appliances.  :wub:

I was going to suggest a minder or a bodyguard, but I like your idea better.

Death by boredom! Bet she’d rather go out with a mai tai in one hand and a hot wire in the other. Or perhaps a mai tai in both hands.

I have to ask:  what is a hot wire in context?  An electrical connection?

 

Oh, and I need both hands to hold a mai tai.

Yes an electrical connection. Very large mai tais?

I'm not quite sure how this came to happen.  I shall never again screw the skin of my beloved thenar eminence into a bottle of La Favorite rhum.  It hurts.  This may qualify as a Guinness first in history.

 

I've always considered myself to be unusually "talented" in such matters, but I bow to the master.

I shall never again put sweet potatoes in a bowl on the counter without checking out the skin abnormalities. Scared the living hell out of me at 2 in the morning.

Hard to tell what it is. Looks like a cute froglet who transported some duckweed in.

After a frantic search for the flyswatter, a 3-yard sneak attack, and a blow hard enough to kill Godzilla, I realized I had killed a root protrusion. Next time I'll put my glasses on before I go for a glass of water.

I immediately identified it as a sprouted spud.   But then, I have experience with these since I'm sometimes slow to finish a sack of potatoes.

I thought it was a root, too, but it turned out to be the stem. Whatever it was, it scared the Living Daylights out of me in the middle of the night.
