The jug remained under the spout fo several minutes, running over. And over. And over.

When someone finally noticed what was going on, they got out the mop and cleaned up half of Lake Huron that had spilled out onto the kitchen floor.

"We had the United Way on standby with sandbags," quipped one anonymous coworker. "Just another day here at Adult Daycare," remarked another.

By the way, sorry, guys. I'll try to pay closer attention.

I lift my water mug in a toast. Here's hoping the week gets better from this point forward.
