I wonder Wednesday…

ok I know this is pretty random but this seriously happened to me the other day and I am utterly baffled (or as my father said, ‘I think I may have seen it all’.)

My fatter and I are finishing up a project that required a chalkboard. Rather than buy a prefab one I decide to paint one. So off to Walmart we go to pick up some chalkboard spray paint. About two days later I finally get the time to spray the board. I pop open the can and…the bloody nozzle is gone! Who takes a nozzle??!!?? I seriously was just speechless. My dad, the fixer, said no worries; we’ll just use one from a spray can we already have. That’s when I remembered I bought a can of turquoise spray paint a few months for a project (I still haven’t started). So I grab that one and as soon as I get back to the garage I jokingly say to my father, ‘this would suck if the nozzle was missing on this one, too!’ 

Sure enough, the bloody nozzle on the second one was gone! WTF?!??!!

So I wonder…did we miss something at Walmart? Were we supposed to ask to get a nozzle? Is this a common thing? Or better yet, are spray can nozzles in high demand on the island that I’m not aware of?

Needless to say I’ll be checking any spray cans from now on at my friendly Walmart!!

Have a great day, friends!

    Oh, my gosh, too funny (maybe not for you)! That is really weird, someone stealing spray nozzles, haha. Love Gabi’s backpack, too cute 🙂

      It really was, Barbara. We just had to laugh! Lol! But the nozzle swap worked and I was able to finish the project. I have the full sized backpack so I gave the mini to Gabi to help cart around her ‘babies’ when we leave the house. She loves putting it on! Have a great weekend! Oh– when are heading to the island? 🙂
