Why Is It....

That I can be so competent at some things...you know, business, puttering, cooking...(ok that's all I got) BUT just suck at others?!? Why? Why am I such a dufus?

I am not allowed a full sized hammer. If you saw me pound a nail you would understand why. I do plenty enough damage with that little bitty one I have.

I'm not supposed to have power tools - but I did buy a drill. I just don't know how to use it.

Today - today was just the icing on the cake.

I bought some pesticide to kill the ants around the house. I wanted to spray around the front tonite and then I'll get the back area after I put Cody in this evening.

So...it takes me 10 flippin' minutes to figure out how to make the sprayer work. (I actually had to READ the instructions....imagine that.) But then it worked like a charm. I'm sprayin' sprayin' sprayin. All Done. Now.....trying to be a responsible being, I put the sprayer in "store" position. Except the damn sprayer was directed towards my face and there was enough crap in the hose to....you got it....spray me in the face.

I immediately came in and washed off my face and my eyes...but I keep running to the bathroom mirror just certain that my face is rosey red and I have boils developing every where.

I feel so stupid.

Figure I might as well share.

You know, this is usually the opposite of the advice I give most people, but I don't think you should own a gun.... :)
