I'm an idiot.  

I dropped a curling iron on MY FACE this morning.  It slipped.  Anyway, I'm howling ('cause it freaking hurt) and my mother calls in:

Mom.  Do you want some ice?

Me.   (yells) Yes, but we don't have any freaking ice, the ice maker quit (re: all things with a plug) last month.

Mom.  (walks in my bedroom)  Here.  This'll work.  (hands me a bottle of Bombay Sapphire that I keep in the freezer)  Soothe yourself with a bottle of gin.

Me.  (holds it to my face, mutters)  It wouldn't be the first time. 


And you wonder where I get it.  *snort*

I feel:: sillysilly

Oh no *hugs* Still, it's good to know that Gin can multitask *smirk*

Hee hee! Gin definitely helps. Especially Bombay Sapphire. I hope you feel better soon!

It was a mostly empty bottle, but still cold. :)

Ouch. I've flat-ironed my ear with my Chi a couple of times, and that sucker BURNS.

I look like an idiot. It hit my forehead and my cheek. :P

Your mother amuses me... the story made me cringe.

go you for still being witty, however!

I missed this! I'm sorry! How not good! But I loved the gin story. You and your mother are adorable together. :)

Alton Brown would be proud of your use of a multitasker.

Though... Did I miss something?

Your mom was over?

[is confused]

Mom came into town for a couple of days; the kids were off for MLK day...

Hope you didn't mangle yourself too horribly. :-)

Tell your kids that they're lucky. We didn't ever get MLK Day off... Unless it was a snow day.

Oh my goodness... are you all right? Still gorgeous? Is it plainly visible? and Gin... HEE! (random non-drinker question: Why is there a bottle of gin in the freezer? Doesn't that open it up for the possibility of a broken bottle?)

LOL. Gin. *snorts* Ouch, I've totally done that before (or something like that before...) Actually, I'm pretty sure almost anyone who's used a curling iron/flat iron has done that :p I hope it wasn't too bad.
