so I've been painting this color all over my walls in the storage room... not because it's my favorite color or anything but because I have an entire gallon of it and I'd like to use it for something other than landfill (besides, I think that's illegal)
Yesterday was a little hectic, and somehow between running to Ortho and baseball I managed to miss a few little paint smudges... on my cheek. One may have been obscured by my glasses (can't wear the contacts during construction, too much dust) but the other was lower and pretty obvious once I noticed it...
Thing is... I noticed it at 8:30 p.m. - AFTER the game where I chatted with a minimum of 7 other adults - leaving a nice first impression for 5 of them and leaving me wondering why at least the 2 I DID know didn't say something...
But it is THEIR fault - I had also been at the Ortho office where the 2 secretaries happily made new appointments and took my $141 without saying a word.
I can't really blame it on them though - my own children didn't even make that uncomfortable hand motion that signifies "you've got a little shmutz"
Maybe I just pulled it off so well that everyone assumes it's the latest thing - just you wait, next week you'll see people all over the country with a little shmutz on their faces!
