4-0-whatthehellwasithinking?


There's something about this weather that's killing my skin. The cold, the wind, getting too drunk with friends and forgetting to wash my makeup off at night. One will never know for sure.

As I inspected my pores in the mirror this morning, I was reminded of an incident that took place in the weeks leading up to the wedding. Maybe it was stress. Maybe it was the potato chip diet. All I know is that in the throes of wedding planning my face began breaking out like crazy. A bride-to-be's worst nightmare. I moaned. I cried. I went to work and tortured my office companions with my angst.

Was it a practical joke? Some innocent advice? One of my co-workers casually mentioned that a little Windex on my zits would do the trick (keep in mind, I've never seen My Big Fat Greek Wedding).

I rush home and rummage under my kitchen sink. Drats. No effing Windex. But, ahaha! 409 multi-surface cleaner. That's, like, the same thing, right?

No. It's not.

To sum it up, I coat my face in 409 multi-surface cleaner, My skin puffs up like something from a bad Cher movie, and Nick scoffs at my stupidity making comments like, "Why would you put something that you use to clean toilets on your face?"

That's a good question.

Sometimes weddings just make girls do crazy things.

I can't believe you didn't reveal this little story until now!!! Someone told me peroxide whitens your teeth so I rinsed me mouth with it for 3 months 2x a day until my dentist told me I was killing important bacteria in my mouth and could develop an infection. Oops.

You poor thing! I would totally do something like that. Funny now though...

LOL! I find your story very funny. That must have hurt, putting toilet cleanser on your face just to get rid of the zits. I was just wondering what your face looked like on your wedding day.

Hey! Give the lady a break, I understand that you just freaked out because you’re about to get married. Sometimes logic is out of question when we ladies are in panic, especially when it comes to situations like this.
