I went to Fred Meyer to get my paint darkened a bit. The guy opened it up and put some black in, and it was still too blue for me. so he went to put a bit more black in, and he set the paint can on the edge of the stand and it tipped over and spilled out all over the place. It got all over his hands and all down the front of the counters and all over the floor and I think all over the front of his shirt and pants. I felt really bad, like it was my fault, even though I didn't do anything, and I was standing at least 5 feet away from him. :(

Re:
Yeah, he mixed me a new can once he stopped fuming. :) I was going for bluish charcoal, but the paint I had mixed at first was more a greyish blue, but too blue.

Re:
well.. then no worries.. he did his job. Fuming or not. :) next time I bet he is more careful. You both ended up with somethign positive, you got your color, and he learned a valuable lesson. :)

Re:
I guess! I still feel bad, though, that he ruined his clothes. I didn't know what to do, so I just stood there and watched him clean it up. Shame on me!

Re:
Yes, definitely! I was going to Pioneer Place to grab a top I'm looking at for my bridesmaids, and I was thinking of getting my hair dyed (but I don't know if I'll do that or where I'll go yet - if you have a place you like, let me know), but other than that, and once I ask Cory (hehe), sure! You can come with me downtown if you'd like... we could get smoothies. :)

Re:
Oh, OK. Well, I'll let you know when/if I'll be going to the hair place, and we can plan from there. Maybe email me your phone number? Or I can just email you tomorrow sometime, if you'll be on the computer.
