Shhhh... maybe if I don't say anything...


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!



Ugh.

I just wanna know why you have a whole bunch of that color?

I "think" the plan was to use it for the closet doors in my daughter's room... but then she insisted on pink (shocking?)

No worries, I bought it as an "oops" color at the store, so it was just $6...

Man, I hate that! I would much rather have someone tell me than walk around all day not knowing. Good to know that it's a fad, now - the next time this happens to me, I can feel stylish!

I'm sure that's a lovely color on you.

I swear I never saw it.... I can't be blamed. It must be your color. It is a lovely shade of blue and green.

After a very embarrassing dinner with some friends in which I got spinach stuck in my FRONT teeth (that was the first thing we ate and we were there for about 2 hours) I now have a rule- FRIENDS TELL FRIENDS! I don't care how you tell me, I'd rather have a moment of embarrassment than 2 hours (or in your case 1/2 a day!).

I would have told you. I'm nice like that.

No doubt you carried it off with aplomb!

Shmutz is the new black! Haven't you heard?!?

LC said...

You are having way too much fun over there--drywalling, tiling, and now painting. Is there anything you can't do?

I would have told you! True story. If it was a booger, I would have told you!

I would have also told you...I'm honest to a fault that way...but I HATE HATE HATE when I realize someone let me look like an idiot all day!

And from you post below this one...Dinner is TIME consuming and when you are busy, it's HARD to eat how you are suppose to...

BELIEVE me, I'm living it right now!

Sucks!
