Pansey patch and sunscreen
Here's my pansey patch - planted yesterday afternoon just before it rained. Worked hard to get them all in and now my upper back and shoulders are sore - but it's a good sore if it's from working in the garden!
Went to Walmart to buy above panseys, as well as a few other items. Was looking for sunscreen, since I'll be outside in the sun lots from now on.
I opened a container and smelled. Hmm - not much of a smell. I was hoping to smell coconut butter or something equally yummy. Tried another brand. Not much better. So I reached for the store brand.
Squashed the bottle.
SPLAT! A humungous glob of white sticky sunscreen lotion flew up in the air and landed on my boobs!
What a mess!
I glanced around - there were 2 employees stocking shelves. Thankfully, they were engrossed in their work, and hadn't noticed.
Quickly, I grabbed a handful of kleenex from my purse and tried to get rid of the mess. It glopped on my skirt, the handle of the shopping cart and the floor!
I started rubbing for all I was worth, while at the same time wondering if I should go back to the car, take off this T-shirt and put on an old one I have in a bag for GoodWill.
It seems the more I rubbed, the more the oily, gloppy stuff soaked into the fabric of my clothes. Looks like I'll have a time trying to get this stain out.
In the end I mopped up as much as I could - I even tried to clean up the floor, and went back to shopping.
Turning around to leave that section, I glanced over my shoulder to see another lady opening bottles of sunscreen, smelling the contents and then trying it on her arms. I didn't wait around to see what happened to her, but made a beeline for panseys in the gardening section.
