Beauty products and engineers

What happens when you live with someone who 1) is an engineer by profession and 2) likes to build/tweak/make things: your beauty products disappear.

That's right.

Things under my side of the sink (where I keep beauty and first aid products) keep disappearing.

Me: "What happened to the nail polish remover?"
Mr. RK: "I needed it to remove (chemical/paint/product) from (thing.)"
Me: "All of it?"
Mr. RK: "Yes."

Similar items have been transformed for his project purposes.

Skin So Soft? "I used that to grease the bearings in (some machine), because it's mostly mineral oil."

Rubbing alcohol? "I needed to mix it with (some product) to do (something.)"

Hydrogen peroxide? Cotton balls? You name it.

(TMI warning: this next is not PG, but it is not violent or graphic. But you have been warned. Click on the link, and you'll know I have sex. Oops. I blew it.)

But it really freaked me out when this went missing.

"I needed to polish a piece of plastic."

Wish I was making this up.

Not an engineer by profession (hopefully will be soon :D), but the second one applies.
Except, I'd just do something ridiculously stupid with my limited knowledge in chemistry, and make things go boom.
Oh, should I not have mentioned that on the interwebz?

The last bit, no fucking way =p
But, come to think of it, kinda useful.

You have sex??? No!

Nail polish remover has so many issues. I pinch the girls clear nail polish to paint on all my cheap bling so it doesn't rust so quickly. :D

What?? You have SEX??! I can't believe he even took the thing that vibrates! At least he didn't take it, use it for one of his experiments and put it back. Now that would just be wrong. lol

Normally I would have a titilating response to a post like this, but now this little bit of extra info actually scares.

To think....well, thinking out loud might get me in a peck of trouble, which is certainly a lot better than a smooch of trouble.

Sounds like Mr. RK is building a sex robot using common house-hold products.

I do believe that wigsf3 has figured it out.

You silly people! He took a liquid product, not a toy!

And I have now changed the link accordingly. But LOL! WIGSF, you just made my day ;)

WIGSF is funny - that is SO what is happening. :)

Now that I know you have sex, I will no longer be visiting this blog. I will say 3 hail mary's for you.

Riot Kitty said...

L: Ssshhh...
ABFTS: Heh. Thanks, padre.
S: Excellent idea!

There are much cheaper polishes for plastic than lube. Next time tell him to get out the cooking spray.

Riot Kitty said...

L: We'd have to go buy some first ;0

Mike_D said...

What? You don't polish plastic with it?

My word verification was diacyth. Take that to mean what it may...

Riot Kitty said...

Mike: Nope ;)

Some things leave me speechless. This is not one of them because that is pure smurf awesomesauce. He is very creative. And you are very understanding. This is a good thing

Riot Kitty said...

Hahaha! Thanks Darth.
