Last week mom and I were still at Kristen's house for Maddie's surgery. Mom was getting ready for bed upstairs and I was trying to find my cell phone downstairs when I heard an awful noise. I ran up the stairs to see my mother with her hand to her mouth.
Unbeknownst to her, she had grabbed the large tube of IcyHot instead of her incredibly small and clearly labeled tube of Colgate toothpaste and brushed her teeth. Completely and thoroughly brushed her teeth. She later said (after the effects of the IcyHot wore off) that she noticed something was different but she just thought it was a new kind of mint flavor with a noticeable slow burn. By the time she had finished brushing she was starting to realize that something was not exactly right.
She had some concerns as to whether or not she could die from the IcyHot but I was laughing too hard to really think deeply about that. Time has proven that ingested IcyHot, while it won't kill you, will spread a lot of laughter among many, many people.
I have kept my word and have not posted any of the FIVE pictures I have of her trying to get the IcyHot out of her mouth. I should get free babysitting for that. Wait. I already do. THANKS MOM! I LOVE YOU!
