Slurpee mess

Jeff got home last night and wanted to know if we wanted to go out to see the "new" location he works out of at the airport. Kendal is complaining about being sooooo thirsty and wanting something to drink, I am extremely hot from cleaning and getting a little cranky from it so I answered Jeff's question with a "sure we can go see the new place, but on the way you want to stop for slurpee's?" He, of course, doesn't even have to think twice on that one so we get everyone a little cleaned up, not so white trashy looking, and load up in the van and head to 7-11 for slurpees. Who knew?!?! While I am getting the lids on everyones cups, Jeff starts to fill his with a combo of flavors (YUCK!) and it overflows so I say, "Way to go, babe!" and start filling up Payton's. I think I stop in plenty of time, but it starts spewing out the little hole in the top so I try to keep it from overflowing by sucking out the top, but I can't do it fast enough. I end up with brain freeze and an overflowing cup. We should've just left then, but we didn't. While getting that cleaned up, neither of us notice that Kendal has taken her cup to fill. Guess what happened...you got it! Hers didn't actually overflow because she didn't have the nozzle thingy in the correct spot so it just kind of sprayed out everywhere. Jeff yanks it away from her and tells her to go to the bathroom and wash her hands so she takes of to the bathroom just as Payton drops her cup on the floor and the lid pops off. I am so not kidding! I get that picked up and tell the poor 20-something guy working there that I am so sorry, but my daughter just dropped her slurpee on the floor and a mop is probably needed. Before he gets back with the mop, Kendal comes back from the bathroom and slides through the spill so she now has slurpee up on her foot and flip flop. All of us did manage to get our slurpee and get to the car with the threat on everyone's life if it got spilled in the car. I really can't believe we took that chance after what we had just experienced, but no accidents in the car and my Pina Colada slurpee was totally yummy! When we were paying the poor guy, Jeff said to him, "Sorry, dude, we won't ever come back". The guy just smiled at him and said,"That's OK." I know that is soooo not what he was thinking. :)

Until next time...
