Super Glue

Just when you think you’re going to have a calm summer day with the children, there’s nothing like a little super-glue drama to spice things up. Yes, friends, I have spent the past hour scrubbing super glue off of the fingers of my right hand after an unfortunate malfunction while opening the tube. Only a few remnants remain. Thankfully, my fingers managed to remain unstuck from each other, otherwise I would probably be having a panic attack right now In case this ever happens to you, here is a helpful tutorial in how to remove super glue from your skin. Needless to say, I think it will be a little while before I purchase another tube of super glue. Our last accident with this stuff occurred a couple of years ago, when my then 2.5 year-old found the glue and decided to paint her nails with it in the 60 seconds before I found her (the tube looked very much like a bottle of nail polish). Both experiences have been a bit traumatizing!

Here’s to hoping that your summer days remain accident-free!

    Nothing like the inevitable drama of re-entry from vacation, hmm?…

    That sounds terrible! We have not had super glue craziness around here, but we do have an outbreak of poison ivy! I apparently picked it up at the farmers market? Maybe it was on some bags? Who knows. I’ve never had it before, so I guess I’m due.

    Filing this information away! I am sure we will need it some day…

    Oh, super glue… One of the flowers fell off of my corsage before my date and I even arrived at the senior prom! We headed to the drug store and super glued it back on, thinking that we were very clever. You can imagine my shock when I was washing my hands later in the night and discovered that the corsage was super glued to my arm!

    Karen, that sounds awful! How did you get it off?
