Every now and then, I purchase something and later regret my choice.
Usually it’s just one more skein of yarn, or a bunch of supplies to make a craft project. In fact, I have some hard plastic, and a tool to cut the plastic. I purchased these items years ago, and for the life of me, I can’t remember what project I had intended to use them.
However, I had a brilliant idea that I needed one of those 10x magnifying mirrors with lights around it. I wanted to get one of a huge diameter–you know, so I could see all of my face at one time. Because I couldn’t find one, I had to settle for a smaller diameter, but with the same magnification.
I only wanted it to make sure that when I went to the dentist, and they pointed their beacon of blinding light on my face, there wouldn’t be any wild hairs, or the beginnings of the return of the uni-brow. OR that they will highlight the one stray chin hair that nobody seems to tell me about. I think my family has a bet on how long it will take me to notice. 😉
If you are considering purchasing one of these mirrors, take my word for it…it’s best to stay blind and ignorant.
And…if you are sending your son off to college with a nice set of white towels and washcloths, re-think that one too. Just as I knew they would, the towels came back gray. Why I didn’t trust my gut on that one, I will never know…I learned with the first returned kid, but sent the second off with white towels as well. I suppose I’m a slow learner.
Just buy them gray to start with. At least you will continue to stay in the dark about how they ignored all the clothes washing instructions you so lovingly shared with them.
