When water coolers are alive

Setting: Hot, yet quiet kitchen. A few hours into yom tov, when the kitchen (and its occupants) are still recovering from the mad cooking dash of erev y"t. Suddenly, the water cooler gives an ENORMOUS belch and several bubbles rise to the surface of the water in the container.

Guest (jumping up in alarm): What was that???

Me (reading my book, unfazed): Just the water cooler. It burps from time to time.

Guest: How strange.

Me (shamelessly taking the moment to be immature): Well, it's better than the alternative.

Guest: ......

Me: Oh, never mind.

And as it turns out, substituting applesauce for margarine is *not* always the best idea.

Especially when you decide to short the sugar.

Grr.

You are one funny girl.

And I think it's even funnier that your dear guest didn't get it.
