Then along comes another girlfriend to join our conversation, Oh this will be great I’m saved, surely Kate will say something. I wait, there it is, there can’t you see it! You can’t miss the bloody thing it’s huge! but nope Kate doesn’t say anything, she looks at me instead, so now her and I have this ‘thing’ going on eyeballing each other, all the while our friend is spilling out her emotions. The afternoon continues I hardly retain any of our conversation, I’m beginning to plan my exit strategy where I can throw in a ‘by the way’, but nothing, I get cold feet and leave feeling extremely disappointed that I have let my friend down. It wasn’t until later that same evening I was able to relax and have a giggle over the whole thing, when my girlfriend kindly left me a voice message. Thanks for the heads up today, NOT! I can’t believe you didn’t say anything, but at least it explains why you & Kate looked a little weird and distracted. She continued on saying “haven’t you heard of the 5 second rule?” If you haven’t said anything within the first 5 seconds of seeing the incident, then let it go, don’t worry about it you missed your window, move on. She goes on further to say, that if you live by that rule you tend to get in there straight up without delay and never again will you let a piece of spinach dominate your head-space. Go on girls spread the word, make spinach your friend within 5 seconds.
