Lady Magnon has always had reasonably poor eyesight. She wore spex when I first met her, and now wears contacts.
Yesterday evening she was rubbing cream into the drying skin of her legs (women do that sort of thing), when I noticed that the cream she was using seemed to be 'foaming', and was not being absorbed properly.
I cracked an unwelcome joke about a current TV ad', where some beach-babe rubs Mayo onto her body (not having been to the right optician's).
Lady M then looked more closely at the cream's container (this time wearing glasses)..... it was SHAMPOO CONDITIONER!!
Larf? We nearly wet ourselves!
What next for her legs, we asked; toothpaste, titanium white, or loo cleaner maybe?..... What larks.
Well.....I may laugh myself sick!!!! What a great story!!ReplyDelete
Some time ago I read that hair conditioner is better than shaving foam for shaving legs etc. I tried and it works so perhaps Lady M was not so silly after all.ReplyDelete
I think they just make writing smaller these days.ReplyDelete
Funny! (Lady M is not alone - last week I sprayed fly spray all over the furniture instead of polish.)ReplyDelete
It's having to feel for the hole in anything that sprays that tells me my eyes aren't what they used to be....no idea how much expensive stuff has been sprayed all over walls, mirrors, other people by mistake.ReplyDelete
I know exactly what you mean. I tend to put a blob of white paint (Tip-ex) above the hole...... a sign of age.Delete
I agree with all of the above - it comes to us all eventually - I once polished the furniture with air freshener.ReplyDelete
Sweet smelling, but non-shined!Delete
That is funny!ReplyDelete
I once sprayed Scrubbing Bubbles, a tub and sink cleaner, onto my hair thinking it was the hair spray. As I looked in the mirror at the white foam expanding all over my head, my husband and I laughed ourselves silly.
Senior moments, you got to love them. They keep us amused.
Perhaps you should buy her an Epilady for Christmas - this may help the confusion!!ReplyDelete
A mate of mine (who also has bad eyesight) selected the cheaper version of TCP mouthwash in the supermarket, then took it home and gargled with it. In seconds, his mouth began foaming as well as hurting somewhat, so he rinsed it out, put on his glasses and read the label. It said "IF ACCIDENTALLY SPLASHED IN THE MOUTH, SEEK MEDICAL ATTENTION IMMEDIATELY'. He's still alive.ReplyDelete
hair remover cream on your toothbrush, that'a killer. I won't tell you who did that :-OReplyDelete
Ok, this may be gross, but you may laugh anyway. I had a guy friend once that was half asleep one morning and he went to brush his teeth, and instead of toothpaste, he squeezed his girlfriend's vaginal medication on his toothbrush.....didn't realize it until it was in his mouth!!!!!! hahahaReplyDelete
so funny! I was just telling my friend it had taken me a couple days to figure out why my hair looked so bad, I'd been washing it with conditioner~ I had a dream about you last night...I was surprised to find that you were one of my neighbors(but you still lived in France??) go tell ?ReplyDelete
It may happen, Linda.Delete
lordy....maybe a new beauty product for the legs??ReplyDelete
My (late) husband once made ice cream sundaes with BBQ sauce instead of chocolate sauce. Oops.ReplyDelete
I feel for Lady M...I'm joining the club with my first pair of reading glasses! Isn't it nice when your spouse so readily presents you with blogging material?ReplyDelete
