Hairspray

Today is going to be one of those days.

So you know, I keep a large wicker basket on my bathroom vanity to hold any toiletries I need for getting ready in the mornings. I find the basket not only looks pretty, but also makes it easy to grab things on those occasions when I am rushing to get to out of the house.

This morning, I could hardly believe the time when I finally opened my eyes and glanced over at the alarm clock. It was already 8:40, and I am supposed to be at work by 9am. On a normal morning, I leisurely amble downstairs, grab a cup of Joe, and take Charlie out to do his business, but (obviously) I couldn’t waste a second today. As my poor dog sat cross-legged, looking pitiful, I hopped in the shower for a cold, quick two minutes and then proceeded to the vanity. Five minutes later, I managed to have both my hair and make up in place. I just needed a touch of hairspray before dashing out the door.

In all my years of grabbing toiletries out of that wicker basket, I failed to notice just how much White Rain Hair Spray looks like Gillette Satin Care Lady Shave Gel. See for yourself.



Can you guess what happened next?

Sorry...

Well, as I recall, models use shaving cream to give their hair that dirty look so I guess you're just following their lead, Diane. I'm sure it's an interesting look--and what can anyone expect anyway? It's Monday. Nobody's firing on all cylinders on Monday.

So... what happened at the class reunion, Diane? I almost went to it also--but didn't want you to think I was a stalker!

Too funny! I still remembering my dad brushing his teeth with Preparation H.

Utenzi- I'm working on the reunion recap now, but I had half expected you to be there. You could have pretended to me one of my old classmates. I wouldn't have known any better.

Jan B - Oh my! I'd say your dad had it worse. Eeeew!

Ahaha! Oh man...so sorry, but that one cracked my shit UP! I was laughing WITH you, not AT you. ;o)

Hope you got to work on time! May I suggest you keep the shaving gel in the shower from now on?...

Can't wait to read about the reunion!
