CAST-AWAY or OFF {chocolate haystack recipe}

i found the missing foot
AND
i glued them back together.
three times,
b/c they kept sliding off.
i'm not sure gorilla glue was the best choice for mending...
but it's become my right hand man in the kitchen.
kind of like windex for the dad in "my big fat greek wedding."
something breaks,
and i go running for my gorilla glue.
brennan's lucky i didn't gorilla glue his arm back together when it broke.
i bet it would have worked great.
AND
it would have been free.
see, genius:)
"there you go!"
except about the whole it's not supposed to go on skin thing.
at least, i don't think it's supposed to b/c it just gets really sticky and takes all day to rub off.
nevertheless,
all feet are glued back on and accounted for.
brennan's arm is better too:)
OH HAPPY DAY!

on our way out of the orthopedic's office we bought our celebratory blue gatorade,
and then made our way out through the aquarium revolving doors.
where we found santa and his reindeer made out of ICE.
 brennan touched Rudolf and wanted his picture with him.
but he wouldn't look at me b/c he said the "real rudolf is right behind me!!!"
i just love PCMC.
goodbye cast!!!
hello santa and his reindeer:)
