Blonde Moment #12


See this almost organized drawer?
P1020051
This is the bottom drawer at my sit down ‘get all prettied up’ vanity.
It is directly next to the shower. This drawer contains all my hair stuff….well 99% is hair magic making items. Combs, brushes, gel, mousse, spray, goop etc…
The 1% of non hair stuff is my shaving cream.
I don’t keep the shaving cream in the shower, because, well, that would be clutter. You know how I feel about clutter. I keep the shaving cream with my hair stuff and on the rare occasion I shave my legs, I can easily reach it while showering.
P1020052
Don’t these two items look identical? Yeah, right.
The one on the left is hairspray. I use it on very rare occasions too, living in hot, humid Florida, hairspray is kind of a joke!
The item on the right is my shaving cream.
Identical? not so much.
I learned a very fine lesson recently… I should think about wearing my glasses when I am doing my hair…that way I would not accidentally spray a shot of shaving cream into my newly ‘did’ hair.
If you could have seen the look on my face when I realized what I did….if you could hear the words from my mouth…well, you would have stuck a bar of soap in there for my own good!
I had a flashback of when my Grandma picked up the ‘scrubbing bubbles’ bathroom cleaner and thought it was her can of aqua net. She made a mess of her hair and laughed like a crazy person. I never let her live it down.
I am my Grandma now.

In hindsight, spraying hairspray onto my legs while in the shower would have been a bit easier to handle....

I hope by sharing this with all of you will save you some trouble later. I can only hope.

Oh my goodness! I have come pretty close to brushing my teeth with VO5 instead of toothpaste because the tubes feel the same when I'm too lazy to turn on the light!!!

ChiTown Girl said...

Oh my hell! At first I was thinking it was a Nair-like product, and I was scared for you. Then I realized it was shaving CREAM, which makes it ok to laugh at you!! You are hilarious!

Betsy Banks Adams said...

Oh how funny... Wish I could have seen your face and heard the 'words' that came out of your mouth when you did that. You should have taken a picture for us!!!!

Happy Blonde Moments.

Have a good day tomorrow.
Hugs,
Betsy

My grandfather once ate a stick of butter thinking it was dessert. Said he didn't care much for the too-buttery taste of the pudding.

Remember that we are laughing WITH you - never AT you.

Sure.

Ha! I thought you were going to say you attempted to shave with the hairspray, which wouldn't have been so bad . . . but the shaving cream in the hair???? That is too funny!

Unknown said...

HAA! I can relate. Olay makes a lotion and body wash and they are in identical purple pump dispensers. Can you guess how long grandma J scratched her itchy legs one day?

You have six hair brushes?

Technodoll said...

Janie said...

Oops! I could see myself doing that, except I don't use hairspray or shaving cream. That should save me a lot of trouble!

Rebecca Foster said...

*can't type, laughing too hard*

I love reading this type of blog entry. I'm so glad you post these things! Very funny and charming.

Kelly said...

Hahaha! You made me laugh. It's genetic apparently... :-)

74WIXYgrad said...

Just makes me glad I don't shave my legs. And when I start needing hairspray, that's when it's time to get some trimming and thinning.

Big Hair Envy said...

So, you skipped right over becoming your mother, and went straight to becoming your grandmother? Bwahahaha!

Jenn @ Juggling Life said...

Can you stick a camera in that drawer so we can get a picture next time?!
