See, I was right not to want to go out. Voted/ Went to B&Q for some of the strong drain unblocker, then to the cat food shop and then dropped in at the human food (well, Tesco Express) shop at the top of the road on my way back. Only to be alerted to leakage from my bag and find that the top was off the bottle and the entire contents were swilling around the bottom of my bag. The staff - who are none too bright - didn’t realise the gravity of the situation and I had to do a bit of shouting at them (largely for their own safety). Furious. Written off a very useful shopping bag, I got some of the stuff on my hands without realising and managed to touch my mouth, ditto (Hands fine, slightly odd ‘taste’ in my mouth but I might well be imagining it: have flushed it v thorougly with water, Soo, so don’t fret), have had to wash all the catfood tins, and have been completely unable to be put through to anyone sensible at B&Q. And as the bottle, along with the dead shopping bag, is still up at Tesco, I very much doubt I shall see that £10 again. I shall try again in the morning - maybe the admin staff stop work at 5 on the dot, though the shop itself is open until 9. And no, I can’t face going back now, even if it would be the sensible thing to do.
I now propose to flush my mouth thoroughly wiv Beer. But this time, I shall swallow.
