Ack! We stole the missal!!

We didn't really. We are just borrowing it until next weekend apparently. Ooh, or maybe I can give it back this week at Ash Wednesday. Anyway, we were at mass tonight with Poops, who for some reason was just not cooperating despite being fully fed and napped, so I am left to sit there and pray for patience. He kept wanting to hold the missal (the book with all the readings in it). So we let him, until he tried to rip and/or eat the pages, and then we took it away. Somehow, it fell into the diaper bag and we left with it! I didn't find it until after church, when we pulled up to the grocery store just so I could run in and run out for a pizza crust because I was making my famous pizza with fresh mozzarella and basil (love it!). Now, right before I ran in, we pulled up to the front of the store, I got out and grabbed the bag that Evan had put in the back of the car, but someone was behind us waiting, so I got all frazzled trying to hurry because they obviously wanted to get around us, and that's when I discovered the missal. Still frazzled after finding out we took the book from church (sinners!!!), I ran into the store, and my bag hits a wine display and I end up knocking over a bottle of wine! It crashes to the floor, and of course it's one of those seconds that the whole store stops and looks at you, and I raise my hand and yell loudly, "I did it!" Just so no one would think I was going to break a bottle of wine and run without taking responsibility. A worker acknowledged me and told me not to worry about it, and for the next five minutes as I am gathering the rest of what I went in for, I hear over the loudspeaker "Wine spill in Produce!!" And I hear customers and employees cackling about someone spilling the wine in produce every time the loudspeaker goes off. Come to think of it, there's no connection between lifting the missal and the spilling of wine, is there? It was an accident!!

I've accidentally walked out with the missal in my hand after I got distracted talking to someone. Then I forgot to return it for a few weeks! Me bad. But I never broke a wine bottle in the store before...hee.
