I went to a farmers market the other day, and discovered my favorite candle maker had a booth.
She has amazing soy candles, and a logo that looks oddly like tombstones.
This time she had added something new. Little tealights with her remnant wax. She was telling everyone, “just drop one in your car, it’ll smell so good.”
I bought three. My son and daughter were with me and I had my daughter pick out the best car fragrance. Coincidentally it was the same fragrance candle that I buy. My favorite! I dropped the candle in my center console and away we went. My car smelled so good the next day!
My son wanted to borrow my car the next day so he took me to work and then picked me up in the afternoon. It was really hot! I ran down to the parking lot, threw my laptop in the back seat and hopped into the drivers seat, dropping my cell phone into the center console like usual. Unusually this time it made a splashing sound. Yup, I had dropped it right into a steaming pool of melted soy candle way. I looked down, I laughed, and said, well as long as my phone doesn’t ring. It of course immediately started making noise. I had taken off work like 30 minutes early so I HAD to answer it. I ever so carefully picked it up and flipped it open while melted highly scented wax dripped down my arm,and discovered it was a picture from Ed of a couch.
Well, at least my phone smells good now.
Speaking of Ed. Ed is a co-worker for like a million years through a couple of different companies. He lives in Plano, Tx. He shares my passion for deadpan sarcasm. Ed and his equally sarcastic wife Jamie have two new kittens. This weekend they discovered these at the pet store! http://www.softclaws.com/
I so want them to buy them and try them so I can see pictures! I wonder if I could put it on the dogs?
