Maybe all of you won't feel so stupid for some of the things you've done, after reading this - LOL:
Yesterday, after making about half a gal almond milk (mylk - whatever!!), I put it back in the Vita-Mix to add a little sweetener and sea salt. Set it to low speed, and didn't bother to put on the lid because I was just going to mix it up.....Didn't realize it was on "high "and most of it hit the ceiling, and went everywhere. I had a fun day of cleaning up.....I did manage to save about two cups in the blender though.
I did this once a couple yrs ago with pesto..Green slime on the ceiling even....
