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.
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.
