@blackDagger – I’ve got another little word to the wise that is sort of delicate and also sort of funny. Let’s keep it clean for little ears, so read between the lines.
My wife helped me to rub some of this same kind of muscle rub into my back for the same things; tension, achiness, soreness – you know the drill.
Anyway, she washed her hands, but apparently not good enough. Later she had an itch in a precarious place, and without thinking, scratched. Hey, we were home, in the evening and resting. We all do it; we just don’t all admit it.
This was not a good move on her part, which she realized immediately. She very quickly and very funnily went running to the shower to set things back the way they should be. This seemed like a good idea, but in retrospect…
Not that smart after all, because the water was hot; really hot. And this lotion responds to temperature changes.
You do the math.
We learned a valuable lesson that day. Make sure you practice good hand washing at all times, and she’s not touching me after she puts that first aid cream on until I’ve made a really good inspection.
