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!!!
