The Day the Tide Exploded

The trip was going swimmingly with almost no hitches until the Tide exploded!

It was the final day of our week-long excursion when it happened.  I was diligently working to configure all our bags into the back of the mini-van when I saw some blue liquid flying out of the laundry basket we had brought along.  Much to my dismay, the entire bottom of the laundry basket was almost filled to overflowing with sticky blue Tide laundry detergent.  I never knew just how bright blue my laundry detergent really was until it was out there all over the parking lot illuminated by the sun.

We were in the process of checking out of our hotel, so I wasn’t quite sure what we were going to do!  This is when my family came together like a team.  The youngest guarded the open car as my husband and other son worked to clean up the sticky blue liquid that was flowing everywhere.  Who knew that something that is used to clean clothes could make such a mess!  When all was said and done, I had to wash my hands five times with soap and water so they wouldn’t feel so sticky!

I chuckle to myself thinking about all the bright blue liquid that was in puddles in the parking lot behind where we had parked.  It rained the very next day!  Can you just imagine all the pretty little bubbles that decorated that hotel parking lot?  Maybe someone will find some joy from our big blue mess!  Bubbles make everyone happy!
