The Yellow Paint Incident

This is dedicate to all those who have ever been called the clumsiest person in the world. I’m sorry to inform you that I have stolen that title.

The gist of the story is I was helping out my friend, Kaitlin, who is a camp counselor. Unfortunately, my clumsiness chose to express itself during craft time. I was sitting at the table setting up the paint for the day and, being my stubborn self, refused my friend’s help. I somehow managed to bump a cup of paint, and not just any paint; a cup of bright yellow, craft paint. I would like to add now that the outfit I was wearing was not my own; half of it was owned by my friend, the other half by her mother.

Needless to say, the paint went all over. I was covered with it. It soaked through my two shirts and my shorts. I automatically reached for wet wipes, but they were pretty much useless. I stood there with my yellow clothes, hands, tummy and thighs as Kaitlin laughed her head off. Luckily the camp had a washer and dryer and I was able to salvage the clothes. However, my skin was another story. I scrubbed and scrubbed in the shower, but it still took days for the paint to fade off of my tummy and hands. I am now called the “Craft-Challenged” girl and I have been banned from the craft corner. It’s shameful really.
