The Bar Incident

And now the explanation on why there was fishing line in the lemon bars I made.

I decided that I needed something to brighten my office for Christmas last month.     I found some colorful unbreakable balls to hang on a branch.   I wanted the balls to look like they were floating from the branch so I made hangers for them from fishing line.  I wish I would have taken a picture,  it was cute.

I tied the hangers on the balls while I sat in front of the TV watching a football game.  I snipped off the ends of the fishing line ties into a bowl.

I brought the bowl upstairs and set it on the kitchen island.   Later when the dishwasher was emptied, the bowl with the fishing line pieces was put into the cupboard with the rest of the clean dishes.  When I made the lemon bars, I didn’t notice the many fishing line pieces in the bowl and mixed them into the bars. 

Bar incidents can be very embarrassing.
