Unexpectedly Masque'd

I have to share a dork wad moment that I had last night. I try to keep dry skin at bay, and as each year passes the task becomes not just a winter activity but a year long pursuit to avoid the signs of aging. The thermometer here has taken a plunge in the last day or two and I can feel that my skin is reacting and not in a good healthy way but in a I don't want to look like an alligator this winter way. So, last night while watching TV in the dark I felt some dry skin on my elbows. I have a small basket on my "hope-less" chest next to my bed in which I keep the "heavy duty" winter moisturizers. So I grabbed one and applied lotion to my elbows, arms and hands. I felt that it didn't feel right, not like my every day scented moisturizer, it wasn't absorbing the way that I thought it would and the palms of my hands felt sticky. Realizing the shape of the bottle, I thought that I had grabbed the lotion for my feet. No wonder I thought, this is for my feet that's why it doesn't feel the same on my hands and laid down to sleep figuring that the lotion would absorb eventually. When I woke up this morning, the palms of my hands felt chalky. How odd I thought and went into the bathroom to wash my hands. I proceeded to do my normal routine, let the dog out, get my clothes for work... When I went to make the bed (navy blue sheets) I could feel the look of horror come across my face when I saw flakes of white all over my sheets. WHAT????? I picked up the "lotion" bottle that I used last night to find out that I wasn't lathering rich emollients all over my arms and hands but I was slathering on a facial masque. YUP, I pulled a true wanker-doodle last night. Not only are my elbows still dry but I had to strip the sheets off my bed this morning. The scary question is: What was a facial masque doing in my anti-alligator basket??? So much for my organizational skills!! LOL!!!

Once my grandma was telling me her lotion was super slippery because it was a new brand. When I asked to see the bottle, it was hair conditioner, it said "Extra Body" so she thought it was for her body!
My sister and I laughed so hard we were creying!

At least it wasn't some kind of craft glue that wandered into your basket. Now that would be really funny if you woke up glued to your sheets!!!!!!!!
