In case you need to feel smarter than someone today, let me be that person.

Words of personal wisdom from today....

A salt scrub after shaving your legs is NOT the same as a sugar scrub after shaving your legs....

Add that to my "don't test a curling iron's heat with your tongue just because your hands are full" list.

Yeah. Really.

You didn't! Poor thing!

BFF Wendy said...

wait...sorry...having trouble posting this comment...lemme get this straight...you had a free hand to lift the iron to your tongue, but you chose your tongue over your hand? Or your hands were full and you just leaned over the counter and licked it? Just trying to get the right picture in my head.

I just totally lost my breath when I read this! I think it was partly from the memory of doing it myself. (The salt scrub after shaving my legs, not the tongue on the curling iron!)

I love you, my friend!

Wendy,
Actually the curling iron was already in one hand, and my brush in the other. You know how you'd normally just flick water on it to see if it is ready? Yeah. "No hands free to flick water," I thought. "...hmmm, what else could I use?".

It was just that fast.

Yikes! I did try to catch an iron that was falling off the ironing board one time...and my son Daniel was in a hurry and tried to iron his pants after putting them on...guess 'smarts' is no respector of persons.

BFF Wendy said...

That fast, huh?

Um, I'm sure this is a guy thing so forgive me for being naive. Could you go back to the shaving your legs part? Salt or sugar????

Why are you shaving your legs in the kitchen? Are you grooming them, cooking them, or simply wading in the large vat of vegetable soup?

I think I'll just leave the hair on my legs and put the salt in my soup. It's so good to be a man!
