She woke up half an hour earlier today to have a good breakfast as there's a cross-country event at her school. But that extra half-hour was in vain as she dropped a bottle of instant coffee onto the floor.
Can you imagine the absolute mess? Early in the morning when everyone was in a rush and this 'tragedy' had to happen.
Fine coffee powder and nano fine glass shrapnel were scattered everywhere - from the dry kitchen to the wet kitchen and dining area. She was doomed to be late for the cross-country. She spent more than half an hour cleaning up the kitchen, with me helping her. I didn't wish to help her as this ain't going to help her to be more careful in the future. But I had to clean the path from the dry kitchen to the wet kitchen to get to the washing machine to get the wet laundry to hang.
The fine coffee powder and glass shrapnel even went under the fridge and piano. It was a nightmare. When it rains, it pours. It was pouring outside too -- which was a blessing in disguise as the event won't be able to start until it stopped raining.
Long story short and with glass cuts on her hands, she managed to reach school in the nick of time. The cross-country event started later in the morning after the rain stopped.
She came out 7th in her category (Form 4 and Form 5) 😂💪
