An Accident Looking for a Place to Happen

This is what I found as I opened Tony's drawer last night to get out the toothpaste.

(In case you can't tell, that's a tube of CAULK next to the tube of toothpaste)

I said.....

Honey, I'm thinking that looks like an accident looking for a place to happen. Those two tubes sure do look alot alike- and it would be easy to mistake one for the other. You know?

He said...........

Well honey, it's a mistake you would only make ONCE. Trust me. Just once.


  1. That reminds me of the time my mom accidentally sprayed deodorant on her hair, instead of hair spray. (Back when both were commonly found in aerosol cans.)

    Or the time a friend accidentally brushed her teeth with Vagisil... which is also in a tube remarkably similar to toothpaste.

    But, the man does have a point. It only happens once....

    In your case, since you take turns applying the toothpaste to each others toothbrushes - depending on who gets ready for bed first... it would feel more like a cruel joke instead of an accident. ;o)

  2. Sounds like a man speaking from experience. My older step-sister brushed her teeth with Desitin once... she never did that again either.

  3. So, my question is: Did you move the caulk? Or is it still sitting there beside the toothpaste?
    I'm just asking.

  4. Yes, did you move it? I would! Can't be too careful!

  5. I can just see myself, early in the morning, just outta bed, eyes not even really open yet and brushing caulk on my teeth!

    Oh my dear... I hope you moved it! :)

  6. LOL...Perhaps now would be a good time to change to toothpaste that wasn't in a tube.

    BTW - Why is there caulk in that drawer anyhow?

  7. Well..........although I took the time to take a pic.....I didn't move the caulk from the drawer. Guess I should do that huh? :)

    The caulk was there because Tony was doing some honey-do projects this weekend- one of which was re-caulking our bathroom shower. I guess he figured that was a logical place for the remaining caulk once he finished.

  8. Oh my gosh! I once brushed with my grandma's Bengay because I mistook it for Of course, I was three years old at the time. :)
