Stupid is as Stupid Does


Name that movie.  

I have a confession.  Remember all those St. Patrick's Day posts I wrote?  The recipes...the decor...the traditions....  Well, guess who forgot to wear green???  I was half way to work and realized the date.  ARE YOU KIDDING ME?!

Why am I just telling you this now?  I didn't want to admit it to you.  After all, my Aunt Cheryl already admonished me...and threatened to disown me.  Not really, but it sounds dramatic, doesn't it.

The truth of the matter is I've had a string of bad luck ever since.  I think the Leprechauns are mad at me.

Last weekend, I dropped my wonderful treasures I found at the Antique Mall.  You can read about this mishap HERE.   In retrospect, I'm quite certain a Leprechaun knocked the bag out of my hands.  Yep, that's my story and I'm sticking to it. 

So what happened this weekend?  Ugh!  Alright if you MUST know.  

One of the less than joyous aspects of turning 50 is the peach fuzz that now resides on my face.  Because spring is now here and the sun is actually shining, I decided to get rid of the fuzz since it catches the sunlight. 

I've used hair removal creams before with no problem.  Feeling confident with its effectiveness, I slathered it all over my cheeks and chin-line.  Hmmm, I've never noticed that tingling before.  Oh well, I can handle it for 8 minutes.  

Eight minutes later, I wiped off the cream...and the hair....and a layer or two of skin!  What the _______ (fill in the blank)!  Holy Cow!  This burns.  I better wash my face to get the remaining traces of the cream off my skin.   

Note to self: Noxema is NOT a good choice.  Wah-ah!  By now, I am doing an UN-happy dance.  

Do you remember the scene in The Grinch where the young Grinch shaves to impress Martha May Whovier?  Remember the results?  Cuts and abrasions all over his face....  That's me!  

Jordan tried wrapping an ice pack on my face to alleviate the burning.  It didn't really help.  

I am a hot mess and dread having to go to work tomorrow. 

I WILL NOT FORGET TO 
WEAR GREEN ON 
ST. PATRICK's DAY 
EVER AGAIN!

MAKE IT A GREAT DAY!

    I don't know if I will notice the peach fuzz because the saggy skin may hide it!

  5. Ouch! It seems the mishaps just keep happening. Do this - put on green from head to toe. Go outside so that the leprechauns can hear you. Spin around three times, spit on the ground, and yell outloud - "Erin go bragh!" Not sure if that's an Irish charm or not, but hey, it will take your mind off your facial skin (or lack thereof) and give your neighbors something to talk about! LOL! PAM N.

  8. Thanks for the advice! I didn't wear green either and now I am thinking back to any mishaps I might have had. At least I have someone to blame them on!

  11. Maybe find a wishing well and throw a coin in to appease the leprechaun. I had chemical burns on my face many years ago and it hurt bad. Hope you get better soon.

  14. Ouchie! There has to be a way to appease the leprechauns? Perhaps leave a soda bread outside for them? Too funny!
