Halloween, Poison Ivy, and Kimchi - OH MY!

Thursday, October 25, 2012

What do these 3 all have in common? The mailman!

Ok, let me back up.

So, we are having a Halloween Party here Saturday. No, let me back up farther. Last Sunday, I had a little trail ride here with a couple of nieces and my grandson. Somewhere along the line, I got into some poison ivy. Actually I think it might have been from the big hay bale that I rolled out to the horses, which when I do that, I always end up with pieces of hay down my shirt. I really can't explain the itchy patches from any other way on my torso as I can assure you, my torso has not been exposed to the outdoors in a couple of decades. emoticon emoticon

So, I have patches of poison ivy on my checks, chin, arms, and tummy to which I applied some poison ivy cream, which is some kind of baking soda base that dries WHITE and pasty. emoticon

Then later, I decide to try on my Halloween costume for our party on Saturday. I am going to be a saucy pirate wench, and DH is a pirate. It fits okay and I am digging it, but before I can change, I hear a honk outside. emoticon

Well, it's my mailman. Anytime he has a package too big for the mailbox, he honks to let me know he is here, and he brings my package to the door. I am always ordering something but now I can't remember what I bought. And all I could think about .... was that I didnt want to miss something if I have to sign for it.

Then I see him take out this trash bag as I came out the front door, and he is like..."I don't know what this is, but it sure does stink!! You might not want to take it inside"

Then I remember, it is the Kimchi starts that one of my Mark's Daily Apple friends sent to me, and yes it sure does stink! Then I remember I have on a pirate costume!! And then as I passed the foyer mirror, I realized I had this white pasty stuff all over my face!!!! emoticon

I have known my mailman most all my life, but I can't imagine what he was thinking! emoticon

No moral of the story. Just thought you guys would get a kick out of that mental picture. emoticon

Sorry you have poison ivy - how miserable!
Hope it is over soon.

    Maybe the old jokes about the mailman being the real dad, aren't just jokes after all.
Seems they came at the most inopportune times, or do they? emoticon
