Life Lesson #27

Lesson #27 (a) After you pick all the jalepenos off of your pizza, be absolutely sure you wash your hands before putting your contact lenses in.
(b) Smiling at the children does nothing to alleviate their fears when you are pounding on the bathroom wall, howling "Oh, the pain!! Oh MOTHER OF GOD, IT HURRRRRRTSSSS"

Tammy.... Have you been waxing? You should never let children see you wax your legs NO matter what the box says it is NOT painless!

OH, Lord. But you can still see? No blurriness? Eyes still tearing when they should? Phew. All's well that ends well, then, and lesson (painfully) learned. For you and the kids!

I have been there and done that! OOOWWWW!!!!!

and my little princess freaks out when you seem to be in any pain. I can't tell you how many times I have done something like smash my finger and then smiled sweetly through tear stained eyes pretending that it didn't hurt a bit, just to make her feel better.

yeah...and don't let your feller diddle you he's been picking them off, either.

OMG...I am squeezing my eyes shut and wincing. My husband got medicated dog shampoo under his contacts this weekend. Golly that was fun!

I feel your pain...did the SAME THING myself a few years back...I was chopping those little orange ones, I think they were habanero peppers, and I got it in my contacts and it didn't come out for days!!! So make sure you give them a good wash. It wouldn't come off my cutting board or hands for days either, no matter how much I washed them both...it did HURRRRRTTTTTT!

My Jalapeno Story
My youngest daughter & I would 'do lunch' together once a week ...she would have been about Girl Terror's age. She was always such a delight in restaurants - always well behaved etc. So there we are in a nice place on Yonge St in Toronto during the lunch hour.......she sipping her milkshake, me my beer and they brought our nachos . I saw 'jalapeno's' listed on the menu, but being a rube from Nova Scotia - I didn't know what they were. Sounded exotic. Well, my poor child took one bite ....her eyes watered, her face flushed and she immediately started puking all over the table!! Seeing a chocolate milkshake TWICE is not a pretty picture........all the Wall Street & lawyer types in their suits at the surrounding tables can attest to that!! To this day, the poor girl views any food item offered to her with suspicion..."there aren't any jalapenos in that are there???"
