Toothpaste Weirdness

rosen roomOk, I just had to stop and share this since I've never seen anything like it.
Hubby and I recently switched to Tom's of Maine toothpaste, for no better reason than we are lazy and it is the brand that Trader Joe's carries. It's nice toothpaste, not as sweet as your major brand names ones, so it does take a use or two to get used to it.
Anyway, the tube feels metallic.
I just pulled it out of my suitcase to freshen up before hitting the floor. The tube felt cold. Mind you, I've been on the ground again for four hours by now.
When I took the cap off a whole bunch oozed out. I mean a big ol' glob that actually made me feel like I had wasted toothpaste (not that I'd try to save it out of a hotel sink).
But, really, to have toothpaste come shooting out like that? I have to assume it is from the difference in pressure that it has been subjected too.

I've finished the cable band for Coronet. Finished knitting it on the plane, but couldn't go anycoronet kitchener
further since my scissors were in my checked bag. While lounging in my hotel room I kitchenered it (and did a rather good job, if I do say so myself) and picked up stitches to work the crown. That took about five attempts before I was satisfied.
I have the camera with me, but I don't have the cord or a way to download, so you'll just have to wait.
Oh, and the room is pretty nice.

  1. Totally psycho toothpaste. Maybe it was sabotaged..... :)

    I'm glad you are liking the Coronet. Did you pick up as many stitches as the pattern called for? I think I only picked up a little more than half. Can't wait to see your progress!
