Susan got bleach in her eye. Ow!
She was cleaning the bathroom using her regular glasses in lieu of protective eye wear when a single drop of bleach went airborne and scored a direct hit. Pow! Immediately Susan's eyeball burst into flames. She flushed it with water like a crazy person but it still smoldered for the rest of the day.

She took her Marilyn Manson eye and started prepping the kitchen cabinets to be painted. They were sporting an undercoating of grease topped with a layer of dog hair. She green cleaned them with rubbing alcohol and a surprisingly small amount of physical effort.

Next came the disassembly, which she left to the husband; fourteen doors and two piles of hardware. Then the priming then the painting. Priming is easy because you don't have to be neat, but painting requires two coats with 24 hours drying time in between. Susan doesn't want to mislead anyone into thinking that she knocked this project off quickly. Nay! It's taken three days and she's still working on it. She fears that when she's done she'll have to paint the walls too.

It's pretty certain that she'll have to paint the walls.

Oh my! Bleach in the eye! I hope your eyeball is better and didn't wither up and fall out.

Yes, you will have to paint the room. You're welcome.

Ouch! I'm squinting and just the thought... hope your eye recovers.

I redid my cupboards once - I don't envy you all the work, but hope you'll share pictures of the finished results. (It'd be a shame not to paint the walls too)

My husband was yelping yesterday because he was plunging the toilet and "got a drop of poop water" in his eye. (Even though the poo was long gone down the drain).

I should have told him "at least it wasn't bleach".

Is one of your eyes now a lighter blue than the other?

That'll get the red out, I guess ...

Yeah, you'll want to paint the walls too. Domino effect, it happens every time.
