And then, as I was putting away our ceramic Nativity set, made by my mother, I broke the tail off of one of the camels.
Here’s where I learned a new lesson: Never let your husband control the super glue while you have hold of a camel’s tail!
Needless to say, the super glue did NOT fix camel’s tail, but it dripped down the tail, onto me, and now my fingers were glued to the camel’s tail!
I managed to pry my fingers off of the tail as quickly as I could, but now my thumb and pointer finger were glued together! It hurts when you pull apart glued fingers, by the way.
So now I had super glue on my fingers, a broken tail on my camel, and my husband was laughing hysterically at my misfortune!
I did find a new use for the Ped-Egg however. The “soothing” side, not the cheese-grater side, files off dried super glue nicely. Maybe they should include that in the product description.
After the crisis was handled, I packed up the camel and his broken tail. I think I’ll leave that for my husband to fix next Christmas. This time he gets to hold the tail!
As a footnote, now I’m really glad I got my hand cream for my Christmas Wish. It should soothe my well-filed fingers nicely.
