Some days you can't do anything right.

I try. 

My wife's feeling a little drug down this morning (teacher of little kiddies prior to the holiday season plus the usual craziness of this time of year).  We did Christmas with the extended family yesterday, and today was planned as a slow day just for just the 2 of us. Cool by me.

She asked me if I'd fix her a seltzer over ice. Being in the Christmas spirit, I offered to add a twist of lemon and she agreed. The one poor lonely lemon we had in the house was kind of hard, so I squeezed it into her seltzer using her "squeezy-crushy" thingy.

Well, turns out that was her garlic press, and she wasn't really expecting that flavor.

Kinda funny, though.

    Thanks for making me laugh out loud.  If there is an animal less suited for doing “nice stuff” for their spouses than the human husband I’ve never heard of it... 🤣🤣

    I would have guessed (had I thought about it) that lemon would have pretty much overpowered any taint of remaining residue. Wrong again. Thing pretty much smells like garlic no matter what you do to it.

    Look on the bright side, Mike.  You just broke her from ever asking you to fix a drink for her.  Kathy thinks it's funny, too.

    Gun control laws make about as much sense as taking ex-lax to cure a cough.

    Truth is, I tried a sip of it and couldn't taste the garlic, but after smoking cigs for years, and currently a pipe, my palate likely isn't as good as hers. She knew immediately upon the first sip what I'd done.
