I had to laugh...

or I would have cried.
Friday, I was at home, alone. I had the washing machine going and I had marked a few things off the to-do list.
Excitedly, I sat down at the scrapbooking table which had been neglected for weeks. I went to work. Enjoying myself, as my husband says, in my own little world.
I completed a couple of pages and was working on the 2nd set. I typically use my CM tape adhesive but I wanted to glue down this really thin piece of paper and the tape was just too wide. So, I got this bottle of scrapbooking glue. It has a tiny little tip which is what I needed for my thin strip of paper. I nipped the end off the tip, as instructed. I gave it a gentle amount of pressure, knowing I only needed a tiny amount. Nothing happened. So, I tilted it up, looking at the tip, and gave a little more pressure. Still nothing. So, obviously I increased the pressure and THAT is when it happened. The whole tip flew off the bottle! My scrapbooking table faces the dresser in the bedroom with the T.V. on it. The tip of the glue hit the wall beside the T.V. and bounced back, almost hitting me. Before I could even look up, all I could think was "oh, #d&$"! When, I did look up there was glue all over the dresser, T.V., DVD player, dresser mirror, the wall, the carpet, a stack of pillows (because I hadn't made the bed), the scrapbooking table & stuff, and ME! It was even in my hair.
It is hard to believe that much glue came out of that little bottle. Needless to say, not much scrapbooking went on after that. I cleaned the wall, furniture, T.V. and carpet first because I didn't know what would happen when the "fast-drying" glue did dry. All that work was done before it occurred to me to take a picture. Here is one of the point of impact!
I can laugh about it, now.
