So here's the glitch...

I'm all face and toe today. My face is chapped and my toe is in hurtsville. fionnabhar talked me into putting a thread of dental floss under the edge of my toenail to encourage it to grow out of my foot.

Great plan except guess who has no dental floss. I have 37 gazillion of those floss sticks with the pokey end. I mean really, I found a draw of them today and then a whole unopened package. And no dental floss. Finally I found a tiny package of it from the Holiday Inn. I have no clue how old it is, likely old enough to vote. And too fat to fit under my toenail. It's there but probably not for long.

So I got in the car and headed off to Walgeens. I got some dental floss and some ingrown toenail cream and bandages. And then I thought I'd get something for my chapped face. DIAPER CREAM!! Perfect. What a great idea. Gentle enough for a baby's butt but strong enough to heal chapped skin.

I forgot a key issue...

No need to blend diaper cream into the skin. In fact, since it is mostly zinc oxide, it will never blend in. Old white lady in the parking lot of a Walgreens in a mainly black neighborhood smearing solid white cream all over her face... who the fuck do we report that kind of mania to???

I crack myself up.

It is fucking freezing out today and still windy. But I doubled down on the epsom salts so we're good. The next soaking will be in about an hour/hour and a half. Not sure when I'll white face up again.
