Today I did something I always do in the supermarket. I spied a new washing detergent and had to smell it before I decided whether to buy it. It was one of those gel versions, so the hole the stuff comes out of when you pour has this kind of suction thing. So I had to squeeze the bottle in order to get a puff of smell. You know the kind I mean, right?
Well, I squeezed, and out shot a dash of washing detergent—right up one nostril and in one eye.
Oh. My. God.
I walked around that shop with my eye streaming and me worrying I looked like Cameron-effing-Diaz in Something About Mary, with “stuff” in my hair. I patted my hair, rubbed my eye, soaked up the tears with my cardigan sleeve. And you know what? My eye is STILL sore hours later. Whose stupid idea was it to make those suction tops, eh?
I s’pose that’ll teach me for constantly sniffing washing detergent or fabric conditioner, but I know I’ll do it again and again.
What mishap have you encountered today?
