probably doesn't do much for your breath either

Why hello there.

Desitin diaper cream tastes exactly like it smells. It's midnight. I have been tired lately. Very tired. I had been blaming a recent bout of frequent Alice night-wakings. But it could just as easily be stress. I'm good at holding stress in, letting it work its way inside my body-- letting it do damage. I've been looking forward to this upcoming trip to see The Wife in North Carolina for this purpose. She has a knack for making me laugh until I cry, for encouraging my voice to pick up volume and intensity.

I am so excited to see her, to see her darling little boy, to visit with her charming husband. We will drive them all mad with our joy, I am sure of it.

But until then, I'm going to get through this week. Things to do. Places to go. Teeth to brush. Which is when the Desitin enters the picture. I was brushing my teeth tonight when I looked over inside my overnight kit. The overnight kit that I was using because I'd spent the night at Nana's on Sunday. I spied the large tube of Alice's Desitin and thought to myself, "Wow, good thing I didn't accidentally grab that instead of toothpaste." Which was when I realized that a particularly flowery odor was coming from the vicinity of my mouth. And my tongue didn't feel very minty. I WAS BRUSHING MY TEETH WITH DESITIN. AND I HADN'T NOTICED FOR AT LEAST 30 SECONDS.

Yes, tired. I'm headed to sleep now. Freshly re-brushed WITH EXTRA MINTY TOOTHPASTE GOODNESS. Bleck, I'm going to be tasting Desitin for days.

Oh yuk. BLECH. That is so nasty I can't even imagine. You must need some serious rest and I hope you get it soon.

Also? Alice is TOO CUTE.

& we have that same giraffe.

I can't get over the cuteness of Alice!

Desitin. Icky, but totally hilarious in the glad it wasn't me kind of way!

Yuck! Better keep the desitin away from your toothpaste from now on!

HA! I'm sorry I got such a good laugh from your mixup. You know I love you...but that's funny!! I hope for your upcoming trip, Alice has her own special overnight bag so you don't have that problem again!
