hazy shade of purple

We had all the different egg dyes spread out in various cups and bowls, the purple in my favorite mug. No one was more surprised than me when I picked it up and absentmindedly took a huge gulp. Nice. My mouth looked like that blueberry girl from Willy Wonka and not in a good way. Then I accidentally knocked over the cup holding the seemingly gallon sized cup of green dye, covering everyone's eggs and table and floor and my favorite jeans in green. M on the other hand didn't wreak any havoc whatsoever. She clearly takes after her father. Let's just hope that whole non-toxic thing is true. Happy Easter, in whatever form today means for you.

Kyla said...

Oh, that natural grace. One day last week I spilled SIX things just while trying to get my morning coffee. Sigh.

Happy Easter, jen.

I also want a picture of the blue mouth.

May your easter be filled with new beginnings.

Amanda said...

I simply couldn't do it, the dye, the fragile eggs, no, we decorated eggs made from construction paper and glue stick.

Happy Easter.

I would like to add my voice to those who are disappointed by the lack of photographic evidence.

Happy Day to you too.

Happy Peep Strip tease. I love it, the pink bunnies all dolled up and using the pole. The plump male chicks reclining into their chairs. Such judgment on their Peep faces.

Happy Easter. Hope your teeth are the purple of easter eggs for a few days to come.

Bon said...

flutter said...

QT said...

Happy Easter, sister. And hopefully the fave jeans are salvageable.

Magpie said...

My child looked as though she was prepped for surgery, her fingers a nasty shade of betadine.

Sounds like you had a sweet day.

Susanne said...

Seems like you're about as absentminded as I am...

Happy Easter nonetheless.

Hilarious. I'm laughing at my desk!

heather said...

Ha ha! I dyed eggs with our 17mo ol and looked up to see him putting the dye-covered, vinegary spoon into his mouth. I think he learned his lesson.

I'm clumsy in a different sort of way... I tend to walk into pillars and posts... Or almost walk into them... And i search for my spectacles when i have them in my hand...

Just getting back after Easter break. Hope you had a good Easter too...
