Lest there be any doubt regarding my dorkiness

I was having a nice, relaxing morning. A little time on the treadmill, breakfast, e-mail - the usual. Finally got around to taking a shower around 10:00 am and decided to start a load of laundry. Specifically towels. So I threw my towel and Ed's into the hall way right outside the bedroom. Ed's towel is dark burgundy - his favorite color.

I started with the post-shower process and thought a cup of coffee would be nice. Walked out of the bedroom, stepped over the towel pile and got the coffee. I started thinking about making spiced apples tonight with our pork roast to use up the 4 million apples we have left from our recent Costco purchase - toying with the idea of putting a little port in the apples. Turned the corner and saw something dark and looming at the entrance to the bedroom. It startled me and I jerked my arm and spilled some coffee.

Only to discover that it was - you guessed it - the towels! What a putz.

I think we've all been there - more times than we care to admit. Doesn't Ed usually do something like this though? ;-)
