Chris got a grease stain on his shirt a few weeks ago, and we were hoping to get home before it set. We stopped at the store and picked up one of those Tide pens that a prepared person should have in her purse for such occasions, (but didn’t). It wasn’t until we got home (just around the corner) that we read the instructions:

Tide to go

Tide zoom

What the hell? Aren’t those the three most important stains to try and get out quickly? Especially when one is wearing a white shirt like Chris was that day. Come on! We just ended up throwing the darn thing away. The shirt, I mean. It didn’t fit very well, anyway.

Then, I was leafing through some Sunday coupons that I had picked up, and came across this hot little item:

Butt paste

Really. I’m sure it’s a good item and would come in handy for those with babies, but BUTT PASTE? It sort of sounds like spackle to me. Spackle would definitely take care of the problem to begin with, but it just isn’t practical.

What about a different name? How about Tushie Treatment? Rump Remedy? Posterior Poultice? Something a little less graphic than butt paste which actually makes me cringe.

I’m just sayin’ …

I’ve noticed something lately. This is what Chris’s desk looks like:

Very tidy!

This is what my desk looks like:

Kim’s desk

How did it ever get this bad? I don’t even have a job, so what’s my excuse?

Matilda

When all else fails, blame the cat.

Owl?

Owl?

Looking out of our bedroom window, I noticed what I thought was an owl:

Bird

Didn’t quite seem like an owl, but being so far away, I could only venture a guess. I took the picture with a zoom lens, although I could have really used a telephoto lens that day. I didn’t think to take a picture to show how small he really looked, but here he (or she) is blown up a little:

Bird2

NOT an owl. A HAWK!! I think it’s an immature Cooper’s Hawk, based on what I could find online.

Cool!
