Wisp me away
I had a bit of a ‘what if’ situation last week. All I can say is, I’m thrilled that I was smart enough to gave my latest handbag essential with me – or things may have turned out very differently.
Let me explain.
A girlfriend decided that a Spanish tapas restaurant would be the perfect place to celebrate her birthday. (Can you say YUM?)
After a number of dishes heavy on the garlic and onions, we were all left a little whiffy in the breath department (hey, it happens!). I wasn’t worried though, I was sure a few glasses of lemon squash would soon take care of that, or so I thought…
Later in the evening, I was introduced to a young man who was a little on the striking side. I smiled and chatted nonchalantly until that garlicky taste started to creep back into my mouth. Obviously, I went into major panic mode.
I excused myself and rushed to the bathroom and rifled through my purse for a piece of gum, a mint – anything! Then there they were. The Colgate Wisps I’d been clever enough to throw into my clutch as I ran out the door – and after a 30 second brush (no water needed) I shimmied back confidently to the aforementioned fella.
Fast forward to today, we’re having coffee this weekend, and I can’t help but think that that may not have been the case had I not had my wonderful Wisps on hand!
When have you had a ‘what if’ situation? (Like, what if I hadn’t thought to bring double-sided tape to that night out?! Eeek!)
