when I am old I will sniff shower gel and stuff

I was in Boots buying hand cream and needed a little something to bring the basket total up so that I could claim the extra points.  I wandered over to the shower gel and saw a pretty coloured bottle.  I lifted the cap for a sniff but couldn't smell anything so gave the bottle a gentle squeeze whilst simultaneosly sniffing.  Who knew the bottle would be so soft?  I inhaled shower gel, instinctively snorted it out again and it flew down my front. My immediate response was to magic a hole to disapear into, but that didn't happen and I did consider quietly putting the bottle back and casually sloping off pretending I didn't have shower gel all down my t-shirt, but glanced up and saw Claire's horrified expression.  I laughed, she started giggling and we ended up marching away laughing and sniggering like teenagers.  Followed by a real teenager who hadn't a clue.  They don't make grand-mas like they used to :)

lol sounds exactly like my daughter and I - gotta love teenagers! So does that make me old - sniffing shower gel and stuff? :) Great!

Oh, that made me laugh! I know someone (who shall remain nameless) who was having an animated conversation with a friend while at lunch. She bent over to take a sip from the straw in her drink, and got the straw up her nose instead.
