I just wanted a glass of tea

So I went to the fridge, poured one, and emptied the pitcher. Time to make more tea.

I go to my family tea bag container and it is empty.

I go to the pantry and get the box of tea bags which I empty into the kitchen container. Now I have an empty tea bag box.

I go to the recyclable trash can to throw it away. That trash can is completely (over)filled.

I remove the plastic bag, and tie it up, then take it out to the trash can.

I now have to put a new trash bag back into the can, and manage to pinch my finger in the process.

I run it under the cold water and as I am paused there, I think.....

Why did I come into the kitchen?

2. Always happens that way.

You want something simple and soon your simple need has cascaded into a variety of tasks. I usually say enough, go sit down, and enjoy DU.

3. Tea.

I will share mine with you except that the 5 or 6 minutes of steeping the teabag turned into an uh oh because I forgot it for 45 minutes. Your call because I am hesitant to try it first.

4. That happened to me once

I walked into the bedroom to get a piece of gum and my lady gave me one of those looks, you know?

Before I could say “Ferrari F50”, 22 years had passed and I had spent $350,000 feeding, sheltering, clothing and educating an entirely separate human being!

All I wanted was a fucking piece of gum

7. This afternoon I went into the kitchen to get a glass of water

and somehow ended up in the front yard pulling weeds. One chore always leads to another, and another, and another.
