Here's looking at you, kid.

Not without cause do my family call me Little Miss Clumsy. Having distinguished myself with an inelegant trouser moment last week, I managed to get toothpaste in my eye yesterday. I can't tell you how much this hurt! It's still a bit tender today. We are supposed to be sharing the driving tomorrow; Mr T is understandably nervous, although I must point out that I have never written off a car. I'll say no more.


  1. I've done the toothpaste in the eye thing. It burns! And I still can't figure out how it happened.

  2. Ouch! How long did it take it to stop burning? I got some Icy Hot muscle cream in my eye once. Wow! Toothpaste is used for many things (giggle). My grandmother was staying with us once and my dad (who had had problems with his back since the war) hasked her to rub some Ben-Gay on his back. So she did. And an hour later he couldn't figure out why it hadn't helped. Going into the bedroom where she'd laid the tube down he saw she'd used toothpaste instead of Ben-Gay. She was 89, and her eyee-sight was really bad! Still makes me smile.

    1. I've heard of people using toothpaste for removing the stain left by Blu-Tack, but I can't imagine it's much use for muscle pain!
