No Cryin over Spilt Milk

Soooooooooooooooo, took off half a day today..(yes, I worked..bah humbug!) , went to the beauty salon for some r & r, and to get mah hair done.

Not there for 5 minutes when the “beautician”, (what do they call them these days?) proceeded to drop a bottle of hair dye she was using on the customer to my left…which splattered all over my thigh high red, suede boots. ( I know, quite the holiday look eh?)

Well, no more.
I peer down, only to spy black blotches all over what used to be stunning, red boots.
The um..”beautician” hardly apologized, whereupon another worker proceeded to spill salt all over my legs and boots, claiming it’s some sort of ancient remedy. Uh huh.

What to do?
What to do?


With lightning speed, (well, not really)…..more like after 4 phone calls of whining and moaning to whomever would listen), I recall the message of the Holiday Season.

I tell myself.
Why couldn’t they have at least been the black boots. Sheesh.

Or, heck, why couldn’t it have it been red hair dye?

Or, or, or, why didn’t I wear one of these instead t’day?

Talkin to myself now…
Angel, count your blessings and your good fortune to even own red, thigh high boots and quitcherwhinin.

(That lasted bout a mili second)

Then I really kicked it into gear…and hit myself with some age old proverbs:

There’s no cryin over spilt milk!
There’s no cryin in baseball either…but that’s another matter. Heh.

Tried to remember all of the following, before really losing what was left of my mind.

“Never cry over spilt milk, because it may have been poisoned.”
W. C. Fields

“It’s no good crying over spilt milk, because all the forces of the universe were bent on spilling it.”
William Somerset Maugham

Or my fave of all:
“If you must cry over spilled milk then please try to condense it.”

Finally the salon owner agreed to send them out to be “cleaned”?
Wonder what color they’ll be now?

Left them there begrudingly, trapsed home and now……………

Walah! All better!

Count those blessings boyz n girlz!
No sweatin the small stuff eh?

Enjoy the rest of Chanukah and the Holiday weekend sweet friends!

    I lost my red leather boots in a card game. Just kidding. There are some things to have conniption about and others not. It’s just trying to figure what the day brings

  3. Katie says:

    It is written in the Constitution that if your hairdresser destroys your red suede knee high boots you have the right to bitch all day.

    Ok it’s not actually written there, but it should be.

    Have a good holiday.

  4. z says:

    So, how’d your hair look?

    You had the perfect attitude….I hope it’ll be rewarded with a pair of red boots that never looked so good………and, if she offered to clean them and they don’t clean, she’ll pony up for a new pair!!

    Let us know!! xxx

    I never understood a woman’s infatuation with footwear until I saw a lady wearing long slender boots. There’s just something about it that is indescribable. Sorry to hear yours got mussed.

    Well they’d better have sent them away for cleaning, otherwise an ass-whupping would have been in order. :)

    Hope they’re back better than before Angel.

  13. Dinah Lord says:

    Angel. You are aptly named.

    I don’t know if I would have been able to show such equanimity in the face of someone dropping hair dye on my FABULOUS red suede boots, Miss Angel. (And I bet they were fabulous on YOU, honey bun.)

    I can only admire your restraint and inner strength. I hope I would be able to put it in perspective, but man – your thigh high red suede HOLIDAY boots?

    Truly hope they come back better than before, but also think you better start looking around for a new pair now. As you undoubtedly know, a good pair of thigh high red suede boots can be hard to find.

    Oh dear! I am retired, but spent a few eary years working in a leather and shoe whole-sale warehouse, and later as a research chemist in the hair care industry. So…fascinating! The hair & comsmetics people love recessions, as that particular business flourishes…for some odd reason. Hair dye, of course is formulated to penetrate and lock into a protein environment…like hair OR leather boots! I am hoping that since the boots were already dyed
    red and should have some sort of protective top coating that deep permanent staining might be avoided. Surely, immediate removal of the dye would be helpful. Shoe repair places are very rare now, but it is possible
    to partially strip and redye to the original color if the right expert can be found. I guess us old guys avoid the problem by staying away from cosmetologists and mostly wearing tenny-runners, but gee, we CAN be
    empathetic.

  15. trespassers william says:

    Accidents do happen, yes, but…what if they are not able to clean your boots? Will they be purchasing new ones for you? If not then you may want to consider finding a new hair shop…and of course informing them that they will no longer have your business. It’s not being malicious, however if someone dinged your car would you simply walk away from it? Granted the boots aren’t as spendy as a car….but I am sure they are not cheap nor is restoring them back to their original color (if possible).

    I spill red wine a lot. Mrs. Elvis the Original Terminator doesn’t like it when I do.
    In fact Have spilled an broken so many wine glasses that now I have a plastic wine cup. It’s blue. The moral of this story is…. even if you love me , do not sit next to me when I’M DRINKING WINE. OTHERWise more than your shoes will be red :)

    Sorry about those red boots, Angel, but yes, you are lucky to own them. I can’t help wondering though, what you wore on your feet when you returned home, since you left your footgear at the beauticians???

    This post does go along with my last one, at least the part about the mud hut and such, so I’ll trackback to it.

    Heck! I even had to pay for the chrutches I’m dragging myself on right now- that is a lender!

    That’s socialised medicine for you…

    My newly bought jeans has bleached spots on them after the surgery. For some reson, all your’e belongings are to be put in a bag that follows you through the procedure.
    At one point or another, someone descided to clean the floors (while I was still at sleep) with chlorine, and it splashed on to the bag- which was not tightly secured- and now I look like a spotted leopard. (c;

    Well, well. The new year is coming. We’ll se what happens…
