A "Stinky" Boxing Adventure in Charlotte

At the last minute, airstream dreams and I decide to "get out of town"...so we headed to the Huntersville/Charlotte area to do some boxing. While searching for one of the seekers boxes...I got myself into a bit of a stinky situation!!

As I was investigating a bush, I got excited begcause I could see that the very old and matted mulch around it had been kicked and moved around!! I reached down, just knowing the box was there under that turned over mulch and stuck my fingers in a cat poop!! I instantly figured out what I had done and ran screaming to airstream dreams who began squeezing hand sanitizer all over my fingers. After washing with that several times and using a lemon-scented cleansing cloth, my fingers still stunk! We rode to a McDonalds while I held my left hand out the opened window...there, I washed my hands in the sink 4 times! Finally the smell was gone...but the thought lingered all day.

Now I have to ask...How does that compare to a Dina B. story??! ;o)

Aside from that small mishap...we had a great time and a beautiful Autumn day, perfect for boxing!!

Turtlelove :o)

You're much braver than I am. I don't touch anything without poking it with my walking stick first. LOL!
