Eye See

This could be me except for the smile.

While we were eating dinner outside my husband was telling me that they must have de-regulated DEET (remember when you couldn't buy it because it was killing the planet). Well now you can buy 100% DEET.

So I celebrated by spraying it directly into my eye. Ah, I felt that. The instructions on the bottle said to flush the eye with water for 15-20 minutes. 15-20 minutes would wash your eye right out of your eye socket. I can still see so I expect to make a complete recovery.

Mary- this reminds me of when you sprayed gasoline in your eye in High School while working at the Mobile. Do you have an aversion to your eyes? Or, is that you are taking seriously the passage, If you eye causes you to sin- cut it out? Do you need an intervention?

So who IS the pirate??

BTW it is no longer a mystery how Ana could manage to drink a cup of bleach by accident. Clearly she takes after her mamma!!

What I can't stand about those high DEET products is they are so tough on your clothes. If its sprayed on polyester anything it does damage. It will also make your nail polish all gummy and gross and one of my kids sprayed in on the aluminum siding of our house and it left a permanent stain! I stopped buying the stuff after that one!

My Dear Sanctus Belle,

You shouldn't be wearing polyester. That would solve everything.
