Although this story might not be completely up to date, i have actually learned a valuable lesson. It was around the summer of 2011 and i just remember being really bored and lost in thought. I don’t quite remember the specific details but during this summer vacation i got an actual bead stuck in my ear. Yes, a bead. The kind of bead that you make bracelets with.
So basically my sister got a jewelry making set from my dad for her birthday and my sister and i would always make many different styles and designs of jewelry. So basically one day my sister and i were making some bracelets and somehow i end up getting the bead stuck in my ear. Trust me, it is much scarier when it happens to you. I honestly did not know what to do. After about a million failed attempts to take the bead out myself, i had no other choice but to tell my mother. And if you couldn’t already guess, she was furious at my stupidity.
After my mom tried and failed at getting the bead out, we ended up visiting the hospital. The hospital staff was not amused. They failed too. After causing the bead to get more stuck of course. Disappointed, we went home. After a couple hours my mom decided to take me to children’s hospital in hopes that they might be able to do something.
After an hour or two, the bead was out! And i learned the valuable lesson of not putting beads in my ear.
I woke up around 9:30am and realized it was May 8th, Mother’s Day. I still had no clue on what to do for my mom, so texted some friends for some last minute ideas. But none of them replied.
Trying to be as quiet as possible while looking through the pantry to see if I can find the pancake mix and lucky me I found a box that was more than halfway empty. Perfect! Just enough to make one more batch of pancakes. Turned the box to the backside to see the ingredients I needed and began to take them out. Read the instructions and placed a pan on the stove to get warm.
As the pan got warm, I poured a little bit of the mixture into the pan. Waiting for the pancake to bubble and realized the pancake wasn’t turning out like a pancake more like a flop. So I cleaned the pan to start over and then I repeated the same routines so did before. Then I notice after the second failure that I forgot to spray the non-stick oil into the pan before pouring the mixture.
Spraying the non-stick oil onto the pan, then poured the mixture and I finally got the results I wanted and finished all the pancakes and then looked at the clock and it read 11:59am. I can’t believe it took me more than two hours to make a fool of myself. I decorated the pancakes with blueberries and made a heart shape and served them to my mom with some mango juice. My mom ended up telling me that she heard me making chaotic noises in the kitchen while I was making the pancakes and I laughed because I am such a failure but as long as she liked the pancakes was all that mattered to me.
