Life Lesson

If you discover two new tubes of oil paint (let's say Windsor & Newton Vandyke Brown and Burnt Sienna) in your purse as you're getting ready to run out the door, do not throw them on the bathroom counter to be dealt with later. No, not even if you're really in a hurry.

If you do make such a dreadful, dreadful error in judgement, be sure the tubes do not land upside down, so the part that shows is mostly white.

If you manage to ignore this sage advice, at least make absolutely certain the tubes of brown oil paint do not land next to a tube of ROC Retinol Correxion Deep Wrinkle Daily Moisturizer, which is of a similar size and also white.

Finally—for the love of all things holy—if you do not heed my warnings, please turn on the damn light when you're getting ready for bed. No, Lovey, the light from the adjacent bedroom will not do.

Is this what they call getting shit-faced?

Ugh. I'm laughing with you, not at you.

Love.

This reminds me of the time in college that I put lotion all over my face before going to bed...and then waking up at about 3 in the morning with my face burning and so swollen that I could hardly open my eyes.

Turns out that lotion I'd spread all over my face was actually Nair.

Lesson learned: don't get baked with your college roommates right before bed and then apply lotion without your glasses on.

P.S. What's with the tubes of paint in your purse?

I want to see the canvas that has the "ROC Retinol Correxion Deep Wrinkle Daily Moisturizer" on it.

At least the painting won't age.

Love you
