Shaving Cream...Comedy of Errors

I would like to share with you one of the most bazaar things that happened to me the other day.

Apparently, I need to start wearing my reading glasses full-time now and have them strung around my neck with one of those tacky eyeglass-chain-things or perhaps even Velcro them to my ears.

I’ve noticed that my eyesight has gotten progressively weaker in the last year. I only use a 150 strength reading lens, however, I’m thinking of maybe upgrading to a TELESCOPE lens.

One day last week while I was getting ready to shave my face, I grabbed what I thought was a can of foaming shave cream from the medicine cabinet.

I proceeding to do what I normally do before applying it to my face - I shook the can to make it nice and fluffy when it came out of the dispenser.

Shake…shake…shake….

I then proceeded to press the dispenser button, allowing the rich foamy lather to fill up my hand…

However, what came out…was pure liquid.

I’m thinking, “What the HELL???”

Again, shake…shake…shake…

I pressed the dispenser button and again…out came liquid.

I have no idea what made me take a closer at the can, but when I did I saw the most attractive words I’ve ever read…

Athlete’s Foot Liquid Spray

Yes…isn’t that marvelous?

And can you imagine if I had accidentally put that shit on my face?

Wait...on second thought…it probably would have been a very good preventative medicine for all those "kinky" sex parties I go to…

    Oh dear.
    Poor baby.
    Is your face okay.

    k......

    *laughing*

    <---sworn to secrecy

    I hate bifocals, btw. So much that I fail to slap them on to my face first thing in the morning.
    Which is how I've ended up with bizarre stuff in my coffee more than once.
    Which is why himself leaves cup, creamer and sugar sitting all by their little lonesome on the countertop for me.
    Which is why he deserves a prezzie, don'tcha think?

    I canNOT imagine putting a razor in my hands while in that state......LOL

  6. You're.freaking.hilarious!!

    You can't wear glasses now...or we won't get anymore hilarious "mistaken identity" stories. And, those are a must. :o)

    I'm sending lots of good energy with this comment, I promise!

    Thanks for the early morning laugh! (Glad the foot cream didn't end up on your face)

    Oh, just read Jeff's comment. too funny. You guys are cracking me up!

  7. Morning Mel~

    I'm to the point where I need the glasses to shave around my moustache or it gets all uneven!?!?

    And what's REALLY strange...is that I can SEE from here to Paris, France...but anything that's right in front of me....it's HORRIBLE!?!?!

    You should see me at work. I'm always quoting the customers the WRONG prices on the products!@?@?!

    (6 and 8 look the same)

    Oh, that's too funny about bizaar stuff in your coffee.

    Watch out for that garlic powder...it looks an awful lot like surgar!?!?

    Thanks for stopping by this mornin' Mel!!!

    Ok...I'm off to shave now....

    And thank god it wasn't a can of deodorant!?!?

    Isn't funny though, how when those bizaar and freakish things happen to us in our eveyday lives...we suddenly think, "Damn...what a cool blog post???"

    And Jeff, YES...I feel like Laurel and Hardy.

    The guy is VERY witty!

    Thanks for stopping by, Rhea. And thanks for the "good energy".

    Enjoy your day!

  9. LOL. I can relate, unfortunately. I am blind as a bat without my glasses. Some years ago, when Right Guard Deodorant came in a spray can, I reached for what I thought was the BO stop. When I quit dancing and my pits quit burning, AND I put on my glasses, I realized I had grabbed a can of Amway instant shoe shine.

    Welcome! And thank you for taking the time to leave a comment.

    YOWSWER! Ouch!

    Oh, man...that is TOOOOO funny!

    But I bet you had some shiny arm pitts.

    Hey...it's nice to know that I'm not the only one!

    That sounds like something I would do, and I have perfect vision. I just don't pay attention because I am always in a hurry.
    I am a bit concerned about your last paragraph though.....LOL!!

    rskirk's comment reminded me of something my dad once told me. My dad's uncle, my great uncle, is....how can I say this nicely....his elevator doesn't go to the top floor, he is one nugget short of a Happy Meal, he is a freaking looney toon, okay??
    Well, my dad has always taken great joy in messing with his uncle. One time my dad convinced his uncle that Right Guard was for using on your face after you shave. You'd have to hear my dad personally immitate the howl that his uncle let out when he sprayed it on his freshly shaven face to really appreciate the humor in this. I'll never forget that story.

  12. um.. *snicker*

    how um... *gigglesnort*

    unfortunate...*falls over wheezing*

    BWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!

    To prevent such an occurence, maybe you should keep stuff for the lower half under the sink?

    I won't tell a soul... promise. You do believe me, right?

  13. Ooops!!! Lol!
    Ok i promise not to tell!!

  14. Hi RON! OMG I was on the floor laughing (i am sure it was NOT funny though when it happened - so I do empathise with that part lol!) -- I am still on blog break but just stopping by to say HELLO :) HUGS! Great posts too Ron -- I had all this catching up to do... (read: my excuse for taking an extra work break!)

  15. lol I only started to wear my glasses at work when I found myself peering at the order forms at close quarters....I hate to think how many times I have sent out the wrong product because I read the part number wrong.

    I know exactly where each can/bottle is in he bathroom that saves these problems. Not that I have to use shaving cream on my face. The only shaving I do I wouldn't be able to see with or without glasses.

  16. Oh Ron, what are you like???

    Pssst I won't tell a soul. ;)

  17. Evening Nicole~

    OMG...how FUNNY!!!!

    Your dad sounds like a wonderfully crazy guy!! And what's REALLY funny, is that Right Guard DOES sound like something you could use on your face after shaving!!

    Between my eyesight AND the fact I was also NOT paying attention...I almost had a "fungus-free" face!!!

    I know...and aren't I wicked about the "kinky" sex parties?

    I WISH!

    Thanks for stopping by today, Nicole!

    P.S. and remind your husband to LOOK before he sprays!

    Thanks for the tip!

  21. Evening Lady in Red~

    I know...me too!

    At work I really should have my glassed with me at all times. Customers are always asking for prices, and some the print is SO small I feel like I need binoculars!

    And I can't tell you HOW MANY pairs of glasses I've lost too!

    That's why I LOVE the Dollar Store!!!

    yepeeee!

    I think I'll try doing what YOU and Anndi do - keep things in CERTAIN places...so I can simply grab them when needed.

    Thanks for stopping by, dear Lady.

    Enjoy your evening!

  27. Loved it Ron! You are too funny!!

    Some years ago my Aunt was running late (as usual) for an important business meeting. Just before she ran out the door she grabbed her hair spray and sprayed her hair. It wasn't hair spray though..it was a can of spray starch. :)

    Thanks for another good vent and laugh! Love ya!

    You ever put eye drops in your ears? Yeah, I know someone who did that ;-)
