Playing with Dirty Balls

Get your mind out of the gutter...unless it's the bowling alley gutter because that's what I'm talking about. A bunch of us went bowling last night and when we finished, my hands were filthy. I went to the loo to wash them and when I was finished my hands felt funny...tingly. Within a couple of minutes I had a hot red rash all them. I'm guessing I was allergic to something in the soap, but it's never happened before. I bowled a 164 at one point so, as a bowler who does the Snoopy dance when she breaks 100, it was totally worth it. Still a little itchy today but getting better. I guess the moral of the story is to play with your own balls and not the one at the lanes. At least you know where they've been and can wait til you get home to wash your hands!

Sounds like packets of "sensitive skin" baby wipes might be needed in your future? I hope you are back to normal this morning!

ewwww.... Maybe you need to sterilize your balls with those clorox wipes before playing with them? I like Kathy's "2" words!

The doctor column in the newspaper today had a letter about people who get reactions to anti-bacterial soap.

And Kathy... That was 4 words.
