In addition to making almost everyone on the internet angry today, I also attempted to poison the entire teaching staff at Veritas Classical Academy.
It’s been one of those days.
Craig invited the staff over tonight for dinner. We currently don’t own a grill so I decided to make a chicken dish I’ve made a bazillion times before. I wasn’t exactly sure how many people were coming and I had no idea what they were bringing, so I planned for a bunch and I prepped the whole meal. I made five pans’ worth of this chicken dish.
When it came time to actually serve, I pulled one of the pans out of the oven and put it on the table. Twenty minutes later after everyone had already sat down with their plates one of the teachers came to me in the kitchen to discretely inform me that the piece he had wasn’t cooked. At all.
That’s when I panicked and started looking at the pan he’d taken his chicken from as I had just switched over to a new pan. The uncooked chicken came from the FIRST pan – the one that everyone had just taken a piece from.
Yep. I served the teaching staff and their families raw chicken tonight.
I’m all about the first impressions around here. I believe if you start low you can only go up from there.
Now excuse me while I exit the internet for a while and pretend today didn’t really go down the way it did.

Oh, Megan. Hugs from me, as well.
oh, no. would it make you feel better if i told you that since you wrote about wanting to paint/grabbing paint chips i’ve been thinking about you and meaning to tell you to grab “the home depot’s” martha stewart paint chip brochure? the colors are great and they are coded to coordinate with each other. ah-mazing. and saved our church from almost being split over choosing paint colors.
so sorry about your day. now i’m off to read what you wrote to tick everyone off 😉
A temporary humiliation quickly becomes a charming anecdote… especially in this case. Classic.
