The Darnest thing happened the other morning

After my usual routine this morning of shower, hair, dressed and then coffee... I started to make lunches for dad and I, and when I opened the fridge... something was weird. Terry made stew last night and when I looked it the fridge, the pot was knocked over. Its a fairly large pot and it looked really weird in the fridge, sort of leaning over. I first thought maybe the dog had opened the fridge door and got into it, but then ruled that out for obvious reasons (like having no thumbs).

Then I realized that the pot was down low in the vegetable drawer. Then, I thought, Terry took the glass out of the fridge to make more room for the large pot of stew. Sort of a weird way of doing things but if Terry is going to make stew for tonights' supper the night before, who am I to complain how he stores the pot weirdly in the fridge.


I hollered down the hall to Terry, teasing him for taking out the glass and he responded with confusion. Which then confused me. I repeated the question and he repeated his response and started towards me and the fridge.... just as I noticed all the ice that was in the veggie drawer!

Ice? As Terry turned the corner around the fridge door, it dawned on both of us... that the fridge glass that IS the bottom shelf of the fridge was shattered in a million pieces. I took the stew pot out before I took the picture and the fridge looks perfectly normal. Hard to notice the glass is gone, especially first thing in the morning...

We figure the stew was a little too warm, still, to be put in the fridge.... geesh.Celery sticks anyone... don't mind the crunch!
