Never trust a hiccup!

At work this morning I had to drive the the detention facility for my juveniles which is about 40 miles away.  It was a nice day, no problems.  Well I was starving on the way home, so I ran through Arby's drive thru for some loaded potato bites (I know not the best choice, but something I thought I could eat while driving).  I get out on the highway and start eating.  Things are not going well.  I know better than to eat and drive.  I pull over and get the roll of diaper bags that I keep in my purse for times like this.  I promptly pb in the baggie.  All is well, I feel fine again.  I don't even try to eat anymore. 

About 12 miles down the road, I am still feeling fine.  No stuck feelings or tightness at all.  I so however feel a hiccup.  Not a big deal, I do that a lot since being banded.  Well not such a little deal...  I proceeded to bring up a PILE of slime.  WHILE DRIVING!  It is all over my shirt, pants, and leaking between my legs onto the cloth seats of the get this... company vehicle!  OMG!!  I frantically look, I have NO Napkins anywhere!  Needless to say I drove the additional 20 miles back to the office covered in slime.  I walked in and told the secretary that I was going home for lunch and if anybody needed the car, talk them out of it and I would explain later.  Anyone know how to get a pile of slime out of cloth seats?  It looks like I peed in it!  I came home and showered.  I still need to go back and clean it up.  I hope that no one needs to use the car!

Bummer! It is such a learning process - I'll keep this in mind too :).

OMG - I just had the same thing happen to me...20 mintues ago. It's HORRIFYING!
The slime is super slime too - I tried to wipe it from the floor board and it wasn't moving.
I would say baby wipes, and just keep working at it.

Yuk. But it happens. I was caught one time without kleenex in my purse. Thankfully I was near a bathroom and ended up taking a bunch of toilet paper with me for the next few hours.

Be prepared is easy to say but sometimes easy to forget. I keep little ziplocs in my purse now and they really come in handy. I'd just spray the seat with a little windex and all should be good. Tell them you spilled your coffee/drink/pudding. Should give them a good laugh.

OMG! I'm so so sorry this happened to you. I agree with Sandy Lee - it was definitely some coffee or maybe a thicker milkshake or something like that.

That sucks.

I totally get the hiccup! For me, it's sneezes. For some reason, when I'm stuck (sometimes I don't even know that I'm stuck) I get the sneezes, and UUUGGGGHH....the MESS that comes out of me! It's very sudden, very gross, very scary. I swear I shouldn't be allowed o eat in public! LOL!
