Still going strong 24 hours later!
Yup. Been there, sort-of. I accidentally spilled LIDG on a ledge in my bathroom, and while the humor of the rhyme was not lost on me, the scent was overbearing which totally killed the humor. How much stronger is LIDGE than LIDG?
I'll never forget what I did, and it was totally my fault. I removed the top of the sample and then something happened, so I had to stop. Maybe a phone call? I don't remember. What I DO remember is standing up the open sample and, as I turned away I thought "That's really dumb. I should never walk away from an open sample, not even for a moment" so I turned back around and reached for the sample to close it... but instead, of course, I KNOCKED IT OVER.
I learned my lesson though. Two lessons, actually.
Lesson #1: Never put down an open sample. Open it, use it, close it.
Lesson #2: Never put down a sample anywhere that rhymes. That's just asking for trouble. No Knize Ten in the den. No Claiborne Spark in the Park. And, most importantly, absolutely no LIDG on a ledge.
