Story to come....


Here's the story!
Last night, Josh and I decided to start cleaning out our storage closet in the carport. It had never really been organized when we moved in, just a catch-all for junk. In the midst of cleaning, I grab some of the gardening scissors and go trim a few weeds growing in the bushes in front of our house. Afterward, I walked back, saw a tub of stuff that had a few other "tools" in it and just tossed the scissors in it... WELL..... the tub also had a can of rustoleum (which is basically spray paint) in it and the scissors landed right in the can! It started spraying just a fine mist at first, but then that died down and I went over to grab it and throw it away... when I touched it, paint when EVERYWHERE!!! Not sure what to do, we drove the .87 miles to my parents' house to get answers and give them a good laugh, b/c... let's face it, it was really funny! After catching her breath, my mama gave me a few bottles of fingernail polish remover to try. I came home and scrubbed like there was no tomorrow. Not only was it all over my face, in my hair, in my nose, and in my ear, but it was up both of my arms and hands. It has mostly come off, but there is still a little left on my arms for me to finish scrubbing today. So, moral of the story.... don't toss garden scissors... ever... but especially not anywhere near a can of rustoleum!

Tay, this is too funny! When I first saw the picture, I thought something was wrong but your big grin quickly made me realize it was something funny. Glad you are okay! I will remember this should I ever own a) gardening scissors, and b) a can of Rustoleum! ha ha :)

Hey Taylor,

Cute picture. I thought you were trying to get freckles like your Mother-in-law. You kids crack me up.
