ah, kids will be kids
it was such a beautiful moment. i actually started to laugh. the dad and the kid both looked at me strange and i had to explain the situation to them. a round of apologies followed and i have been promised that they will be done by noon tomorrow. for added assurance, the dad said that he remembers taking a look at the trousers and that the stains are definitely going to come off. all i'll say is i'll believe it when i see it.
i also need a lint remover for my jacket and i was going to pick one up when i did groceries today - but they didn't have any (surprise !) on my way back i walked past this store called Pet Shop Girls - it's a pet supplies place. on a lark i walked in and am now the proud owner of an Evercare Veterinarian Pet Hair Pic-Up adhesive roller, which I was assured will do the job. It also doesn't hurt that it is 37% stickier than the leading competitor !
i have been asked many times why i blog. it is really for days like these. to preserve the memories of incidents that seem like they were scripted for a movie. only, this is very real and i'd like to jot it down so i can have a hearty laugh when i look back many years from now.
