List: Ten things I'll never do again.

A while back our favorite rhyming cat from It’s Rhyme Time gave me a post suggestion.
Apparently list topics just pop into his brain with zero effort.  Claps for that, cat!
I saved the suggestion in my drafts folder waiting for the right time to tackle it.
Well, a recent experience made it loud and clear that the time is here!
Does anyone else involuntarily rhyme when mentioning Pat Hatt or is it just me?  Hah!

Ten things that I’ll never, ever do again.

1.  Try to make pancakes in a non-stick pan.
This just doesn’t work.  You’ll just be left hungry and very frustrated.

2.  Leave a tub of Vaseline within reach of a 2 year old.
I turned around for a second, and she SMOTHERED herself in it.  It took days to get it out of her hair!

3.  Run full force into a wall at the sight of a spider on my shoulder.
Well, maybe I’d do this again.  I mean, I never actually did this on purpose.  Bleh, gag, barf.

4.  Substitute applesauce for eggs while making meatloaf.
This trick only, and I repeat ONLY, works when making cookies.  Heed my warning, people!

5.  Agree to babysit my in laws cleaning company.
I’ve never worked so hard in my life.  To make matter worse, at the end of day, I only made $2/HR!

6.  Watch The Walking Dead with my sleeping toddler next to me.
She woke up the next morning says “Don’t eat me, mommy”.  I guess my Mush woke up.

7.  Drink a full cup of coffee while driving to a corporate meeting.
It spilled ALL over my shirt and I had zero time to clean up before meeting with the CEO.  Fail!

8.  Put on eye makeup when my husband is driving.
Let’s just say thank goodness I wear contacts because otherwise I may have lost an eyeball.

9.  Apply for a job at a company where a family member works.
You may all remember this post from a few months back, but I certainly learned my lesson.

10.  Put an egg in the microwave.
It does not hard boil itself.  Instead it explodes and hardens onto the walls of the microwave.

What have you learned to never do again?


  1. Wait, whawhawhawhat? You put an egg into the microwave? :))) I did hear you can bake them in the oven in their shell but it needs special temps and planning :)

    1. LOL Well, there was no special planning with this. I just figured I would get a hard boiled egg. This was a serious fail.

  2. You have me laughing this morning girl. I always crack up at those people who are putting on their mascara at red lights because I have a hard enough time doing it in the bathroom mirror. I have learned to never mix vodka with iced tea when you run out of lemonade. It tastes like crap!

    1. I really had fun writing this one. I laughed at myself the entire time I typed.

  3. lol poor wall. What did it ever do to you? Running into it hahaha yippee for the cat, as the ideas flow on out. All good thing to never do again lol at your daughter telling you not to eat her.

    1. LOL!!! I'll never forget my husband's face as he watched the whole thing. He must think I'm whacked, but it was an involuntary reaction. I had zero control of the situation.

      aww, my poor mushy!!! But, the real question is, do I really look like a zombie at bed time that would make her say such a thing?? Smh!

      Keep the ideas flowing, cat. :P

    2. haha hmmm never thought of that. Maybe you remind her of a zombie, scary hahaha

  4. I did the same thing with an egg! Worst decision ever... Ever.

    1. LOL!!! Thank you for making me know I'm not the only one. :)

  5. hahahahaha sorry I am cracking up. That last one about the egg. Did you leave it in the shell???

    1. Well, I'm glad I gave you a good laugh. lol lol Yes...I left it in the shell. Head down in shame. hahahahaha

  6. Ugh, exploding food in the microwave is SO annoying. i swear it manages to get everywhere in 3 seconds and microwaves are never convenient to clean!

    lol, try not to run from the spiders- they don't care about you! It will help your shoulder :)

    haha, I would imagine vaseline would be a bear to get out of hair (I rhymed on accident like Pat!)

  7. LOL to Walking Dead! Poor girl. Never again will I think I can walk down the stairs in heels without holding on to the railing, regardless of how much practice I think I've had - nope nope nope

  8. The egg thing is so funny. I am sorry it probably gave you a horrible mess to clean up.

  9. Laughing! I hope when you ran into the wall, you hit the spider. hahaha...
    I wonder if mayo would be a good egg substitute in meatloaf.
    I tried to paint my nails once when the mister was driving. lol...never again.

  10. Ha, a 2-year old and Vaseline! I bet that was a messsss! :) Oy, little grabby fingers.

    Le Stylo Rouge

  11. I never knew that about pancakes, but then again I don't cook
