An over-spilled Pot



"Sheesh!" Tara shrieked as she ran to pick up the boiling pot from the burner.

"Now I not only have to clean this stove top, but also go clean up the house." she agonized as she bit her lips and cursed herself for not being prompt.

While scrubbing those stains off the gas burner, she remembered her grandma's words, "Make sure you never allow the contents of a pot spill over, cause that is an invitation to surprise guests."

"Darn it!" she mumbled softly.
 Tara was tormented by the above, "I hope her words don't come right."
