Take that candied yams!
I wasn't always the super pleasant person I am today. I know it is hard to believe. I once had a temper and was kinda mean to people. I know, say it ain't so...
My favorite "you are outta your mind" episode occurred one Thanksgiving. Everyone kept asking me "do you want help?" Now if I want help I will say I want help. After the 10,000th time of hearing that, I had just opened the oven where the candied yams were baking. I picked up the pan and the load shifted. Yep bad news when you are talking about yams and aluminum. So in one of my epic moments, I decided to just throw the pan on the floor and proclaim "I need a bit of help."
My mom was like "Jesus Shelley, all you had to say was stop asking me for help." Oh snap, the eyeball rolls, laser-eye looks, and snarky remarks clearly didn't speak loud enough. Sunshine enjoyed the yams. I think my kitchen is still sticky in places from that day and it was over a decade ago. I don't know if that speaks to my cleaning abilities or the force I exerted on that food item.
Happy Thanksgiving to all and may you always have much for which to be thankful. Gobble Gobble
