This is my something borrowed for SPF @ www.randomandodd.com . Not too exciting I know, but here it is.

My friend moved to Florida last June, then she moved to Hawaii in, gosh I forget now, a few months ago.......now (like today) she is moving to Montana. Long story and I don't have to tell that one!

Anyway, before she left she couldn't take everything with to Flordia and left a lot in storage, so she let me use this espresso machine. I didn't really make espresso in it, but I would steam my milk everyday for my coffee.................

until.............

one day I got zapped, like minutely electrocuted. I thought it was because I had the dishwasher and the machine going at the same time, and I forgot all about getting zapped.......

until..........

I was talking to my kids and steaming my milk when JUMP! It bit me again. So I told my Dad, the expert electrician and he said, "UNPLUG IT IMMEDIATELY> SOMETHING IS WRONG AND IT IS SEARCHING FOR A GROUND AND IT IS USING YOU!!!!!!! VERY DANGEROUS AND YOU HAVE CHILDREN...YADA YADA YADA.......BLAH BLAH BLAH......."

ok dad, i'll unplug it as soon as I get home......YIKES!

He did say he would look @ it for me, and I haven't had him do it yet, its just sitting on my island staring at me while I'm working on the computer. Denying me my pleasurable steamed 1/2 n 1/2!!!

I better have him look @ it before she comes and visits in July or I may have some explaining to do. I already killed her fish I was babysitting........some kind of friend I am!!

I'm not very good at making up stories and captions, but when I saw the photo of the lady on the ground, the first thing I thought was, she looks like she's having a baby. I was going to say "push"!

I played this week.

OK, the whole electrocution thing is NO good.

Awww... don't feel badly about the fish. You don't how old that fish was when you started watching it. It could have been a grandpa fish and lived a very full life. :-) (at least that's what I tell myself when I kill something)
