Coffee and Picture Frames

I ordered a copy of Tomb Raider: Legend a while ago and it came in the mail last night. It also came with a lithograph (reads: picture printed on cardstock) of the image from the cover of the box, which is pretty cool.

While Jenn and I were out last night I picked up the “el cheapo” frame at Jo-Ann for $2 so I could put it up in my cube and have something to hang it by (I’m not a big fan of poking holes in my pictures, so the frame basically serves as a picture hanging device).

I got it all the way to work and started getting out of the car with it this morning when I realized my hands were pretty full - coffee, computer bag, name badge, picture… Should I put something down or make a couple of trips? Nah…

…at which point my coffee decided to spill out the travel mug and all over the picture.

I’m not sure if you’ve ever had coffee inside a picture frame (like between the picture and the glass), but that’s a bitch to clean up. Sticky, greasy… ugh. Nightmare.

Everything came out fine in the end (no big deal if it hadn’t, but it’s nice when there’s no loss). Maybe next time I’ll put stuff down or make two trips.

Or maybe I’ll just keep on doin’ what I’m doin’ and screw it up again. Which is more likely?
