Yesterday I charmed the sales rep. working at Macy's fragrance counter for 5 vials of Allure Sport, which is a tremendous feat considering how ungenerous those women are, and just now they were smashed. Â*I had come out of the shower, and put the vials in the sink to ironically ensure that nothing would happen to them while I attended to a phone call. Â*My dog came running up to me with a ball while I was talking, so to get him to leave I blindly threw the ball into another room, which unfortunately ended up being the bathroom. Â*My dog jumped up to the sink to get it, and in the process knocked over a surface-top mirror that just had to land in the sink and crush the vials. Â*To make matters worse, all the juice literally went down the drain, leaving only shattered vials. Â*I was still on the phone, so I went to another room after I had finished investigating the crash, when my dad came home and went straight to the bathroom. Â*He thought that the vials were pieces of paper (no chance to clean yet), so he casually picked them up and got some stuck in himself. Â*After picking his hand of tiny shards, I took an ear-full about my "ridiculous hobby" and the "strong odor" of the room. Â*I suppose you win some, you lose some! Â*My first thought was actually "good luck getting those back!" Oh well...maybe I'll go back in disguise...
