“Crap!” I had rarely infused so much frustration in a single word.
Tom paused his frenzied packing to look at me. His face paled when he saw my indigo fingers.
“This bag is ruined.” I walked to the sink and rubbed my sullied hand. A part of the dye came off but the rest stuck to my skin determined to scream ‘fail’ to every passerby.
“At least, you didn’t put the whole lot together.”
“But we have to go! And we’ll never have enough with what’s left.”
Why did I decide to make bath fizzies for my sister’s baby shower?
This is a drabble for this prompt.

You know this could have been avoided if you’d stuck to your natural color! 😉

You love my blue hair. And my drabbles. 😛

I’ve had hair dye mishaps before but never homemade bath product mishaps. 😉

*laughs* I’m sitting here thinking you robbed a bank & the dye came off the bills early!
The way you layed it out, you were able to not say what you were doing, but it still maked complete sense.

Yay! That’s exactly what I aimed for!

Like Jenn, I love how we’re not told what the dye is from until the very end. This was really fun to read!
August 9th, 2011 at 5:36 pm
Thank you Dana! 😉

I totally agree with Jenn and Dana about how skillfully you wrote this, keeping us in the dark till the end. Very nice drabble! Oh, and you employed that same technique in Light to excellent effect!

Kept us guessing right till the end … very smart !
