This is an old post from Six Short of a Dozen (January 15, 2008) but I found the ultimate tissue, and think it’s worth sharing…
I woke up feeling pretty miserable this morning, but I was determined to have our school day before the scheduled field trip in the afternoon. I got through the spelling test with Koala Bear easily and moved on to her older two sisters. Halfway through, the flood gates in my nostrils opened and I motioned for someone to “run grab a tissue quick”.
I should mention I have sensitive skin and almost always end up with an embarrassing and UGLY sore under my nose when I get a cold. I’ve been on a life-long quest for super soft tissues. Some search for gold, I just want a soft puff.
Artistic Flare came to my rescue and I quickly wiped my nose with the most incredibly SOFT tissue EVER! WOW. I’d struck it rich. My nose would never suffer again. I looked at this tissue of tissues with the cute little designs which look strangely like the ones on our baby wipes; you know those soft-for-the-sensitive-baby-bum baby wipes.
I arched an eyebrow and asked where she got it fearing the answer. It looked clean. Sniff. Smells clean. Gotta be clean, right?
Apparently, Little Miss Princess thought it would be fun to stuff her clean baby wipes in the tissue box. My thoughts? Let’s stuff some more in there, so I have a supply on hand. I’ve finally found my soft tissues.
