This evening I was finishing Addie’s Christmas pillow. I use Aleene’s Tacky Glue around the edges and stick the trim on. That’s what I’ve heard others say they do and it works fine.
I’m a messy person! When I’m cooking, I wipe my hands on my clothes . . if it isn’t a horrible mess. You’ll never find me home wearing anything around the house other than jeans and an old T-shirt that’s usually full of holes. I try not to leave the house looking like that but at home . . there’s no use ruining decent clothes.
So, this evening I was gluing and not thinking but I kept tapping the trim down onto the pillow, wipe my ha
nd on my butt, then tap more, wipe my hand on my butt.
I came upstairs and sat down for a few minutes – just long enough for the glue to dry. I went to get up. Oh, no . . the glue dried and I was stuck to the chair. Vince was sitting across the room. I put my recliner down so he was waiting for me to get up. I didn’t want to say . . the glue on my butt dried and I can’t get loose from the chair. He said “What are you doing?” when I didn’ get up. I said “Just thinking about what I’m going to do next!” . . which was true. Then I started giggling. I said “I’m stuck to the chair.” Oh, I should have had the camera ready before making that statement. He looked up at me and said “You.Are.Stuck.To.Your.Chair?”
Vince: What are you doing?
Me: Thinking what I’m going to next. (which was true)
Vince: Why did you put your chair down?
Me: I was going to get up.
Vince: But now you’re not?
Me: I’m kinda stuck to the chair.
Vince: KINDA stuck to the chair?
Then I explained that I had wiped my hands on my pants when I got glue on them.
Lucky for me, the chair had a slip cover so I stood up, the slip cover started coming off the chair but then the glue let go. Thank goodness it wasn’t a lot of glue but that stuff holds nicely.
Grandma getting stuck to the chair could have been worse than Grandma getting run over by a reindeer. 🙂
