Moley Moley Moley!

"The Life and Death of a Mole"

I had what turned out to be a benign mole removed from my right leg last month. It left quite a dent in my leg, which is quite noticeable when you look from the side. Wahh! I'm damaged!

One in a Vermillion

Oh Mr. Clean Magic Eraser...what would I do without you?

It was a dark and stormy night. (Well, it was early evening anyway.) "Paint with me, Mom," she said. Five minutes later...

Let's get a closer look at that, shall we?

Yes, boys and girls. That is vermillion paint on my wall. I didn't have the foresight to take a picture of her arm, but imagine a similar scenario from wrist to shoulder on a 9-year-old arm.

How did it happen, you ask?

Let's zoom in a little closer on that...

Yeah. That's what I thought. The paint is coming from the BOTTOM of the tube. The part that would normally face AWAY from the paper. I guess I can be thankful it wasn't aimed at the textured ceiling. Apparently when the tip is plugged (damn cheap dollar-store paint), and you squeeze...well, you get the picture.

One Mr. Clean Magic Eraser later:

Kind of put a damper on painting, but I did get a lovely picture:

Apparently vermillion is sorry too. :)
