Cursed Jinxed?

Tonight was the fund raising night at Cici's Pizza for our elementary school. I decided it would be a good idea to go. I never go to Cici's Pizza without having flashbacks of this experience. But the last few times we have been nothing too bad has happened.

Michael met me there to drop off the little girls before he left for a meeting at church. He had been gone exactly two minutes when I walk up to the table from getting soup for Ruby and Eliza Claire to find all four children in a dither. Ruby was holding a broken glass salt shaker and Charlotte was panicked because she had knocked over Ruby's drink, which landed in Ruby's plate and had her food floating.

Ruby was spilling salt everywhere. Did you know that when large amounts of salt are poured into Sprite that it foams a lot? I dumped the broken salt shaker in the bowl of soup I was holding and ran to the bathroom to get paper towels to clean up all the Sprite. When I got back to the table, Ruby was using her hand to stir the salt/Sprite mixture and then licking it off of her fingers. It was totally disgusting!

When order was restored and everyone was happily eating again I realized the problem. I was alone with the children at Cici's. These kinds of things never happen when Michael is along. I will not be going back to Cici's with all four children without him again. I just don't think I can take it.
