I took 3 showers today! That's more than usually happens all week!
Karma had a skunk trapped under the gas kiln in the shed first thing this morning. It had sprayed all over the place but hadn't hit Karma directly, thank goodness. I used the water hose with some high pressure riot control techniques to 'flush' it out. It was not a happy skunk and it looked like a drenched sewer rat as I directed it to the woods. I smelled pretty bad from being around all the skunk spray in the shed = shower #1.
After that I needed to get started glazing a load of pots. I had forgotten I had used ever drop of glaze in the bucket for the last firing. So I mixed up two five gallon buckets of glaze so that I would have plenty and some as a backup. I admit that I am a very messy glaze mixer. I ended up with glaze all down my leg and on my shoes and on the floor. I felt too disgusting to start on the pots so I had shower #2.
Then I mowed the yard and glazed a kiln load of pots. By that time it was 4:30pm and I needed to get ready to go out to dinner with Sarah and her parents for Sarah's birthday. Shower #3.
I am one clean dude!
