Cold Cereal for Breakfast Anyone?

As I stumble down the stairs for breakfast I get the bowl out of the cabinet and the milk out of the fridge. Then I get the cereal out of the freezer. Huh? What? Who puts a box of cereal in the freezer? I confess, I did. I blame to grocery sacker. Who else am I going to blame? When we went to the grocery store the other day the sacker put a bunch of the frozen items in one bag. When we got home I was in a hurry to get the stuff put away. Daisy was upstairs in our bedroom. I always put her in there when we go grocery shopping.This makes it easier cause she won't be underfoot as we bring in the groceries, nor will she be able to sneak out the door. Lady is too lazy but given the chance Daisy would bolt out the door and down the street. So as I started putting the groceries away, I checked each bag. Can goods were in one bag, Milk in another. Other things were in a bag for the refrigerator. Most of the time the bags are fairly well organized. But this time I guess the sacker thought one bag could hold another item. So he put the box of cereal in with the frozen dinners and other stuff that go in the freezer. So, I glanced into the bag and saw the frozen stuff. Without even thinking, I just dumped the bag in the freezer. I ran upstairs, got Daisy and took her outside. Then I got supper ready. Finally everything was done. We ate and later I washed the dishes. It was not until two days later when I went to get something out of the freezer did I realize that there was a box of cereal in the freezer. I guess it could have been worse. I could have put a frozen pizza in the pantry. As I took the cereal box out of the freezer, Jimmy asked why I had put it in the freezer. I had no logical answer. It does give new meaning to the phrase "cold cereal for breakfast". Now let's see, where did I put the laundry detergent?

I had a friend whose mother put her boots in the refrigerator and the milk in the shed and she couldn't blame the grocery clerk.

I was in a hurry getting ready for work the other day. I was thinking about the day ahead and my mind wasn't on my current tasks. That's why when I sat down on the couch to put on my shoes and socks and noticed that I held shoes in one hand and a glass of juice in the other, I knew my socks were in the refrigerator.

We're all guilty of doing something similar. Blame multitasking. It's driving all of us to distraction.
