Whoops, I Did It (Again)

in All Posts

Funny story.


I am in a mad rush to leave my house (still am, actually).  I put the ingredients for two smoothies together – one for me, one for Kristien – but then cannot find the top to the blender. “Oh, screw it,” I think.  I grab a paper towel and cover the top.  I turn the blender on, and once it starts going, I walk away.  When I return, there is no paper towel.  “Hmm,” I say. “Where did it go?” I look all over the counter and the floor, thinking it must’ve been blown off.  And that’s when I realize… the blender ate the paper towel.  This is not the first time this has happened.  When will I learn?!


Needless to say, I made another smoothie.

    Hungry, hungry blender! That’s so funny. Be careful, you silly chicky! Lol

    HAHAHAHAHAHA omg I love that, you should have seen my face when you said the paper towel was missing!

  • Katie @ Talk Less, Say More October 12, 2012, 9:29 am

    You win some, you lose some. At least it makes for a good story! 🙂

  • Fallon October 12, 2012, 9:33 am

    hahaha oops!!! Those Vitamixers will blend anything 😉

    I love it sounds like a typical morning for me :o)

  • Mary October 12, 2012, 9:34 am

    Haha if you can’t find the lid use a plate instead usually upside down. That’s what I do

      What?! How did it not create a mess?! …

  • Leslie October 12, 2012, 9:52 am

    A high fiber breakfast smoothie for sure.

  • Caitlin @ This Bride's Joyride October 12, 2012, 9:53 am

    Haha! I guess it’s better than the smoothie exploding all over your kitchen (which is where I thought the story was going)!

  • Leah @ Chocolate and Wild Air October 12, 2012, 9:57 am

    Yikes. But a little extra fiber never hurt anyone 🙂

  • Laura October 12, 2012, 10:21 am

    Is that a Vitamix? I have been considering getting one for a while, but I am not sure if it is worth it.

    • Caitlin October 12, 2012, 11:11 am

      So worth it!!!

  • Amanda Hollenbaugh October 12, 2012, 10:22 am

    Hahahaha. This is the most hilarious thing I’ve heard in a while. At least you were smart enough to realize the blender ate it 🙂

  • Annette@FitnessPerks October 12, 2012, 10:37 am


    I SO would’ve done something similar, I am sure. Hope you enjoyed the new smoothie 😉

  • Caitlin October 12, 2012, 10:45 am

    Haha! That reminds me of a couple weeks ago, I measured about a tablespoon of peanut butter in my smoothie, and then proceeded to turn the vitamix on WITH the tablespoon measure still in it. It totally shredded the whole thing. Peanut butter banana smoothie with a touch of plastic? Yum…

  • CJ @ Fill the Well October 12, 2012, 10:53 am

    Hah, would’ve liked to see the recipe write-up for that one:

    Almond milk
    Peanut butter
    Paper towel

  • Liza October 12, 2012, 10:56 am

    bahahahahaha!!! Yay fridays!

  • Hayley @ Running on Pumpkin.com October 12, 2012, 11:18 am

    Hahaha! I just laughed out loud to that story. I have forgot to put the top on my blender SO many times and ended up spending 20 minutes cleaning….I need to put a little sticky note on my blender that says “PUT TOP ON!”

  • Ashlee October 12, 2012, 11:19 am

    haha! I hear paper towels are full of fiber 😉

  • Sara October 12, 2012, 11:28 am

    Anyone else have Britney Spears’ song “Oops I did it again” stuck in their head now?

  • Katherina October 12, 2012, 11:52 am

    I would just eat it

  • Rachel O. October 12, 2012, 11:52 am

    eh…i’m sure the paper towel just adds some texture!

  • Carolina John October 12, 2012, 12:15 pm

    aw come on, that’s just extra fiber!

  • Melissa October 12, 2012, 12:16 pm

    Oh I sooo have done that with a metal spoon!!! ekk! At least it didn’t go all over the kitchen!

  • Nadine October 12, 2012, 1:01 pm

    A little extra fiber never hurt anyone.

  • Laura @ She Eats Well October 12, 2012, 1:05 pm

    We all do that, or some version of that, sometimes. Nooooo judgement here 🙂

  • Beks October 12, 2012, 2:12 pm

    That is NOT where I saw that story going. LOL

    I usually use a salad plate. Little bit of weight to it. If your blender ate a plate, I’d be reconsidering it. I know Vitamixes are strong, but yikes if that happened!

  • Amber K October 12, 2012, 2:25 pm

    What? You didn’t want the extra fiber? 😉 lol. I can’t say I have ever walked away from a blender while using it, but that’s hilarious.

  • Ellen @ Wannabe Health Nut October 12, 2012, 4:02 pm

    Ha, omg, I can’t even make a smoothie without forcefully holding down the lid and staring at it the ENTIRE time. Then again…I am not a sleep-deprived momma. 🙂

  • Luna665 October 13, 2012, 4:03 am

    hehehe it happened to me too, but I was there WATCHING the thing eat up the paper … after that I use plastic wrap 😉 convenient, no need to wash it, stays put 😉

  • Robyne Spillers October 13, 2012, 10:36 am

    I can never find the lid. Like the lid fairy runs off with them. I use a small plate cause it is in the cupboard just above the blender. No chance of plate falling in. Thanks the the daily laugh. Laughter is good for the soul.

  • Kylie @ immaeatthat October 14, 2012, 9:51 pm

    Nothing like some added fiber:)
