Toxic glue?????????

Yesterday we got all of our Christmas cards addressed and sent. 70 of them. I had no idea that we actually knew that many people. (And yes, I know it's kind of late to be sending them, and that they probably won't arrive before Christmas. I should have started them sooner...........ect.)
We got the kids involved in the whole project. They stuffed the envelopes, stamped our return adress on them, and put the stamps on.
I tried to talk them into licking and sealing the envelopes. They each sealed one and decided that the glue tasted bad, and so guess who got to lick all the envelopes.
Yep, it was me. And yes, the glue tasted bad.
As I was finishing up the last few envelopes, I had a flashback to that episode of Seinfeld where George's fiancee licked all the envelopes for their wedding invitations, the glue turned out to be toxic, and she died.
So far I'm feeling O.K.

Welcome to blogland! Thanks for the comment on my blog. Your kids are hilarious--they must take after their mother. Envelope glue tastes gross. Even the stuff that's supposed to "taste" good is nasty. That's why I bought one of those "envelope licker" things at the office supply store. You can also use a damp rag... Just a thought.

Funny? That episode was funny? Having never seen it, I'll have to take your word for it; but it seems to me you must have left something out.

You were probably better off without the "help."

How are you feeling right now??

Thanks for stopping by!! Happy holidays to you and your loved ones.

Julie- Yes I did think of the damp rag for the envelopes, but that would have meant I would need to get up from the table and walk across the room to the sink. Too much work.
One scrappy gal- Feeling fine today, thank you. Of course, last night after eating all that fudge, it was a different story.

I'm sending out my cards tomorrow so don't feel bad.

According to the SNOPES.COM licking an envelope costs you 1 calorie. So you just ate 70 calories. YUCK!! That's why I don't send out Christmas cards - I'd rather spend my calories on CHEESECAKE!! ;o)
