Starting the week out right

Now that the kids our out of school and I don’t need to give anyone a ride in the morning, I have time for a morning run.

Starting the week out right

This morning I threw my work shirt over a t-shirt, packed my gym bag and headed for work. We have a locker room to change in and showers, so it’s a great set up.I went out for a nice 10K along the Charles river in Boston and enjoyed the morning sun, the sites and my fellow runners. I was having a great day.

Then I got back to the locker room and took out my gym bag. Something smelled funny, and not the usual funny. I opened my bag and took out the plastic bag where I put my toiletries. The bag was full of some oily looking substance. It turned out that somehow the entire bottle of spray on sun screen had discharged and turned into a liquid! I took all my stuff out, tossed them in the sink and rinsed them off. What a mess!

Then I looked for my tie. I couldn’t find it. I checked all the pockets in my gym bag. Nothing. Didn’t I bring a tie? Then a rummaged around some more in my bag and found my tie on the bottom of my bag with several large oil spots! Oh F*#%!

My brand new tie that I bought my self for Father’s Day. Ruined. It still had the price tag on it, never worn. So my great way to start the day and the week turned into a real pisser.

Anyone know how to get an oil stain out of a silk tie?

    Yikes! well at least you started off with a nice run…. as for the silk tie, I have no idea but I have had Baby Oil do that in multiple suitcases on long trips. I use it to remove makeup and somehow it always seems to seep out and drench everything! Gah!
