When Shaving Goes Wrong

I made an interesting and, I'd venture important, discovery early this morning. See, I was shaving. I'd just smeared shaving cream all over my face and I'm one of those people who tends to use too much anyway. Then this odd feeling came over me. I tried to stifle it but I wasn't successful. I sneezed. And my sneezes are generally...robust. It wasn't pretty. It looked like a tub of Cool Whip blew up in there.

I'm off to a big, most likely stressful and unpleasant meeting this morning. Sadly its not close so it'll eat up most of the day. Happy Hump Day to you!

i got it probably as soon as you sent it, seeing as the timestamp was 6:48a.m.

and what's wrong with a little cool whip for breakfast? lol

And you finished shaving after the sneeze, right? Probably best if you have a meeting today ;)

What a GREAT picture you've painted for me in my head! Thanks for a laugh to get me going this morning. :o)

Well, thanks for the mental picture! Hope the meeting isn't too painful.

That's funny - try to relax and have *gasp* fun at your meeting. Maybe count the ceiling tiles for me. I expect a full report :)

Hugs, Chris. I think we're both unhappy and tense, but there's light in our lives and and the end of the tunnel. You're super-talented and funny and great, and your kid is a very lucky little Bean.

Better than sneezing (robustly) with a mouth full of oatmeal. Not that I would know....

What a great mental picture...

Hee. That was funny. Have a fantastic time in your meeting...I'll be in one as well for the next four hours. Woo!

lovely, just lovely... hope you didn't give your baby whiplash from the earthquake that the sneeze might have created. ;)

happy hump day to you too!

Been there. Another thing I hate...when your nose itches after you put shaving cream on....and you move your finger to scratch it...shoving shaving cream up your booger spout.

You realize the more you try to stifle, the bigger the sneeze, right?! So, in trying to prevent the cool whip explosion, you actually created a bigger mess. Hehehe. I almost typed booger mess! And that would have made sense, too!

Happy Hump Day to you, too!

Exploding cool whip, eh...if that doesn't get your day started right then nothign will! ;)

That, we would have liked pictures of.

Now that's something you're going to have to share with the new kid. rofl

My brother did that this morning, too! Except the irony of it all is that my sis and I were fighting with him, so we replaced his shaving cream with coolwhip, so coolwhip did explode everywhere when he sneezed! Odd, yes. Normal, not if my life depended on it. Anywho, I hope your meeting wasn't too much of a snore-fest
