  •  Thank you (6+ / 0-)

    My brain must be a bit fried too, because I took my baby aspirin with water, and chewed my prednisone by accident. Oh gods.. that's horrible.. yuck!!! Now I have to try and get rid of that taste.. EWWWW!
    Hopefully Altoids help.

    •  lol!! (6+ / 0-)

      if you have to resort to altoids, you are in big hurt.  teehee. maybe the bad taste is why rubi is not thrilled about taking them but i put them on the way back of her tongue and i am sure she never tastes them.  i don't think she will go for altoids.

        steroids are VERY VERY bitter, so much so they can make me nauseous. So getting the taste out of my mouth when that happens is very important. They don't bother me normally, but I usually don't chew them.

          in my art occasionally.  when i was working, everyone dropped their empties on my desk.  i have about a ton of them.  time to use them up and get them out of here.  do you find uses for your empties or just recycle them?  sometimes i have to mass trash that kind of thing because i can be a borderline hoarder if i don't watch out.

          hope you feel better as the day goes on.

            for the dogs. They hold a lot of kibble or those little tiny meat treats, and they stay closed in a purse or a pocket without dumping them all over. Plus, all you have to do is take out the can or shake it and you  have their instant attention.

            They're also good for storing beads, or Rainbowloom C clips, or any other small crafty thing the kids need that get all over the floor (I bed they'd work well for Lightbright pegs too!). I have a tiny altoids can that I keep my guitar picks in so they don't scatter or get lost.

            I've also used them as medical kit containers. A couple of bandaids, some alcohol wipes, small travel packs of antibiotic ointment, and some benedryl and you're set for a walk with the kids. They stay dry in the rain, and again, don't come open in a pocket, purse or backpack.

              great ideas.  i hadn't thought to use them for treats that are shake attention getters. and the mini 1st aid kit is inspired.  i am making one today!

              i use a lot of them to hold all the tiny things i use in the various art forms i attempt.  i also have been known to alter them with collage and the like, inside and out, and trade them with other collage artists.  i also use them to hold all my little quilting things that i carry in my "to go" container when i go to the workshop.  those darn tins are so useful!
