Have you ever made blunders? If yes congratulations you have a company. If no, too bad 😦
I have been labelled a “Blunder Maker” by my family and I have ever since worked really hard to do justice to the title bestowed upon me. I must add this isn’t an easy task considering the fact that you must always come up with innovative blunders all the time.
Here are a few innovative blunders I have ever committed.
Example 1 :
On a Sunday morning I thought I would prepare breakfast. What better than a Dosa and Chutney? I put the rice and water in the mixer jar and switched it on. Meanwhile I grated coconut for the chatni. The mixer made a screeching sound and came to a halt. Apparently I put very little water and hence the blades refused to move and the socket holding the jar overheated. All I wanted to do was cook breakfast. In spite the fact that the breakfast turned out well nobody paid me compliments, it was the mixer they mourned!
Example 2 :
Generally I am not fond of cleaning. My room is testimony to it. But there are times when I am on a cleaning spree and I am unstoppable. On one such fateful day while I was cleaning the house, I happened to look up at the ceiling (I curse this moment till date) I saw cobwebs on the edges of the tube light. I immediately went in to get cobweb remover and started removing the cobweb. Just as I was doing it , the cobweb remover hit the tube light and the tube light came crashing down. Sigh!
Example 3 :
One afternoon I was on my yet another cooking endeavor. I put some oil on the pan and switched on the gas. I realised there wasn’t enough oil in the bottle I went inside to fetch oil not realising the gas was kept on high flame. By the time I returned to kitchen, I saw my dad and sis standing at the kitchen door trying to set off the fire the utensil had got due to overheating and a part of the wall had turned black! What is it with me and overheating!! Do I need to tell what happened next?
Example 4 :
At our home we divide work at least we think so. My dad and sis generally do the washing I look after the kitchen. Did you just ask how my folks still trust me the kitchen work? I would like to believe I cook well 🙂 But if you ask them they would say they do not have any other option. Now coming to the point, one day while my dad was away, I took upon myself the duties of washing department. I picked up all the white clothes to wash first. I put them into the washing machine and rinsed them 3-4 times then removed them to a bucket containing Ujala. I thought I will leave it for sometime and went in to the living area. There was “Twilight” being shown on TV. I was so engrossed watching Bella and Edward that I blissfully forgot about the clothes soaked in Ujala. I then went to the bathroom only when I had to answer nature’s call ;). To my horror the white clothes had turned blue!!!
