daily stuff

I know these days must be krazy trying to get things done for the holidays, so I wanted to share with you something that happened to me yesterday...hopefully it will make you laugh or smile.

I was trying to open a can of baked beans to heat up for dinner.

It had one of those pull tab tops.

I lifted up the tab and the tab snapped off!

I took out my can opener and tried to open the can, but the can was a little dented so the can opener couldn't go all the way around.

Thinking that I had opened most of the can, I stuck a spoon in to lift up the lid.

The lid was definitely not cut all the way around because the lid lifted up a bit then sprung back down, shooting sauce up into the air.

I tried the can opener again and then the spoon, but there was more lid springing and more shooting of sauce into the air...

Finally, I got the lid to open by rocking it gingerly back and forth until the metal wore out and broke.

Whew! thought we might not be able to have this for dinner...

Did I make you smile/laugh? Hope so.

I'm glad you didn't cut yourself; or end up getting the beans all over the floor Kat!

yes, it did make me laugh which is what I need right now, coming down with a cold and super frazzled because not ready/finished for holidays!
at least it didn't shoot up in your face or eyes, which is what usually happens :)
but happy holidays to you and Satoshi!. Do you guys eat KFC for Christmas too?

ohhh one classic dinner, hot dog and beans! Your story is so funny, I had to smile. I think everyone has experienced pull up tabs not pulling up. I hate it when that happens to the corn beef can - the kind that you gotta go around the can rolling up the dang label too that gets moe hard the moe you roll. Or worse it just snaps off and now whatcha gonna do??!-N

no we don't KFC, V, though it is super popular, especially in Okinawa!

whoo Alibaba37!

see Jalna, another reason I need a camera in my eye, so I could've videoed it....

oh gosh N, the corned beef can with the key thingy is the worst!

Take care everyone!

hilarious Kat, and after reading the post, this is what came to mind:

Beans, beans, the musical fruit
The more you eat, the more you toot
The more you toot, the better you feel
So we have beans at every meal!

lol Rowena never knew some of the lyrics, only the part about "the more you eat the more you toot" :)

Take care.
