It is traditional here and I expect everywhere to thoroughly clean the house before Christmas. De started her cleaning mission today and found some things that she needed to talk to me about.
Hmm, I could tell by her face that I would need a plausible and fast explanation for whatever it was.
She looked at me and pointed to the chewed tops and bite marks.
I returned her steady gaze without blinking and without any hesitation asked her if she had spoken to the little person as he might be teething and had gnawed on these beauty products to sooth his sore gums.
De sighed deeply and reminded me that the little person is 9 years old and finished teething about 8 years ago.
Quick as a flash I pointed out that several of the beauty products do look old.
De shook her head in a resigned way and took the creams and lotions to the trash.
Phew, that was a narrow escape! Watch out little person I’m pretty sure that De believed my very plausible explanation.
