The Shot Heard Around the World

The Shot Heard Around the World


I bought a fresh fruit cup for my lunch yesterday.

Simple, healthy..... Strawberries and pineapple.

What could go wrong??

Yah....

So, there I was, sitting at a lunch table small talking with a few coworkers that were sprinkled throughout the break room. I'd wiped down my table, washed my hands, grabbed a plastic fork from the fork basket and begun to settle in.

"So, what did you guys do last night, did you have any inkling he was coming?"

"No, I had no clue. Oh my God! I was sitting in my office....."

And, this was the magical moment.

You know the one...

The one where I wind up covered in strawberry pineapple juice in front of an entire break room full of people.

"And all of a sudden...."

POP!

In a moment that couldn't have been timed better, my fruit cup exploded open in my hand as I attempted to pull off the lid, a sound rivaling a gun shot echoing from the walls.

Fruit juice dots peppered my glasses as I looked over at the table next to me and burst out laughing.

"Only you [Secret_lade], only you...."

Removing the glasses, I grabbed a square of paper towel and attempted to wipe them clean.

That only managed to make things worse....

"Oh.... good.... God. Fuck it. So, what's going on with the rest of you? Anyone else going to wear their lunch for the rest of their day with me??"

The break room erupted in laughter and The Most Irritating Coworker on the Planet started in on the gun shot jokes.

Good news / bad news?

Good news.... Got to spend the rest of the day smelling like strawberry pineapple!

Bad news.... Got to spend the rest of my day covered in a sticky film.

Eh...

What can I say. It was a Tuesday.

Happy Wednesday!

You do live an exciting life! It is just one that is exciting in rather unusual ways and so many involve food trying to keep your calorie count down.

If you see me in the real world, come say "Hi Justskin."

I always behave. Preferably not well.

    Whenever I have a pudding cup, I'm always afraid I'll do what WyoCowboy7751 said he did and wind up wearing it, so I make sure it's sitting on the table and I hold it down to peel the cover off. I've never gotten any fresh fruit cups though but now if I ever do, I'll be thinking of your experience...and make sure it's pointed anywhere but at me!
It wouldn't have mattered where this was facing, the lid literally exploded off the cup. It was crazy. It landed about 3 feet from where I was sitting. I've never seen anything like it in my life.

It looked pretty fresh, right out of the produce department. I've bought them a million times before.... I'm still not quite sure what happened. The only thing we could surmise was that it had to have been old enough that the acid from the pineapple was fermenting the strawberries and creating CO2, which caused the explosion. I still ate it anyway. LOL Felt just fine.
