Wasn't my son just mentioning that one of the reasons he loves me is because I make embarrassing mistakes?
Well, here's another one:
Yesterday, I was making chicken pot pie for dinner. I put the filling in the pie crust and popped it into the oven. I set the timer for 45 minutes.
Forty minutes later, my kids sat down at the kitchen table. "When is dinner going to be ready?" they asked.
I looked at the timer. "Five minutes."
Oddly enough, I didn't smell the great smell of chicken pot pie. So I took a closer look. That's when I realized my embarrassing mistake number 253: I had forgotten to turn on the oven!
