Today’s Humor Me Friday post will be interrupted by what was supposed to be yesterday’s post- Continuation of the Suitcase MakeOver Project.
The first thing I did after deciding to get this project done, was to buy the suitcase. Then I cleaned it, and yesterday, I gathered everything else needed.
When you decide to get a project done, don’t under any circumstances choose a project that you have the material at home for. Nope.
Instead you should,
“We have to buy Mod-Podge.”
“I need Mod-Podge.“
“Where do you think Mod-Podge is sold the cheapest, because, did you know that Mod-Podge is actually just water and glue?”
*singy voice*”Mod-Podge. Mod-Podge. Mod-Podge.”
*British Accent* “Mod-Podge”
Then you actually buy the Mod-Podge, take it home, and unearth all the bags, toolboxes, containers that were neatly stacked in the closet, in search of a paintbrush to spread the Mod-Podge with.
But first, on your way home, realize that the Christmas Carol tape! you keep in the car every December is still in the tape player, so you turn it on, look outside and realize that the lights on the trees that were put there for Christmas are still up, and for a brief five seconds you feel it is still December.
Good. Now you have Modgy-Podgy and fabric! Awesome! Now besides pens, scissors, and the paintbrush, you need a rotary cutter.
That’s when you need to unearth every single box from your last move, and search high and low for the rotary cutter you are not sure you have. Then, please realize you do not, in fact, have rotary cutter, you have a x-acto knife.
Realize then, that the x-acto knife was inside a bag, on the shelf, right out in the open, the whole time you were making a huge mess with the boxes.
So now, you’ve got it all!
Everything I learned from this experience:
- Craft stores do not sell fabric. Just yarn.
- Craft stores sell Mod Podge. The same exact Mod Podge sold at Wal-Mart for much much less.
- I don’t care what people say about Wal-Mart. If they have lower prices on craft material, I’m there.
- I will now have to stop making fun of actors/actresses in black and white movies that I thought “pretended” that the suitcases were full therefore heavy. They might have been pretending the suitcases were full, but after hauling one around a couple of stores, I know those things are heavy in their own right!
- Hauling around a suitcase inside stores brings about much less fuss than I thought it would, so next time I need to haul around something that obvious, I won’t be so self-conscious. Nobody cares what you’re up to. Live life.
And that’s all folks!
Oh, except for this video of what happens when you eat overripe fruit. Oh boy…
