Goofy Kool Aid Stuff

I woke up this morning and went about my routine of getting dressed and ready for the day. I drove to work and prepared for a meeting, after talking to a few people. Then I went to the bathroom. Generally not an exciting task-but then I noticed it--> a big old KOOL AID STAIN on my mouth.

Yes, I admit it. I am a kool aid drinker. Especially now that it comes in sugar free, I have been reliving my kool aid loving memories from when I was a kid. Though I suspect now as a woman close to 30, kool aid stains on the mouth aren't so cute. But I drink the stuff before I go to bed, or in the morning--and I KNOW this cannot be good for me! I brush my teeth at in the AM and still have stains on my tongue.

So I set off on a search on the web about kool aid related things. I remember trying to dye my hair with kool aid when I was a young lad, and I found out today I was going about it in all the wrong way--no wonder my hair never turned purple. I used to sneak the stuff into my room, then sneak a LARGE pot into the room, then try and get warm water into the large pot, then I would contort my body so that my hair rested in the pot. I would sit like this for a while, until I thought that I had soaked long enough-(surely it felt like hours, but really only 10 minutes). Then, no color on my hair--but everywhere else. On the carpet, on my bed, on my stuffed animals. I think there is still kool aid stains on my carpet in my room at my parent's house.

I thought I would help educate all of us on some little-or not so little-known things you can do with kool aid.

Well, that was a great diversion for me. Hopefully it was for you, too.

this goes way back to your breast post--breast exams suck! i actually had a benign fibroid removed from my booby, and it was humiliating at first, but you kinda get over it. i've also, at the tender age of 27, had not one, but TWO mammograms (we call them slam-o-grams around here). they're really not that bad--especially when you're past 22 years of age and your breasts aren't hard as a rock anymore!!
