I'll never live these moments down
When I was about 11 years old, my father took us to Chuck E. Cheese for some fun. Well, while we were getting ready to eat the pizza, I saw the jar of red pepper flakes on the table and yelled out, "ooh! Bacon Bits!", and proceeded to dump it on my pizza. A couple of bites later I was howling and my father, who heard me and didn't warn me, tried not to laugh. I ran to the bathroom to splash cold water in my mouth.
More recently, my husband took us out to Black Angus on a date and I ordered mashed potatoes which came with a tub of white cream I thought was sour cream, so I started piling it on my potatoes. I took one bite and started saying, MY MOUTH!!! OWWW! and my husband was just laughing at me- told me I put horseradish on my potatoes! Yuck!
I swear, there are some things we do in life that are so boneheaded you can't live them down. Frankly, I think it was a bit mean of my father to not warn me! To this day, he'll toss me a package of red pepper flakes if we're eating pizza asking, "Do you want some Bacon Bits?". Jerk.
