Last night I went into Target to get some medicine for Annalisa and I got sidetracked at the "Everything over here is $1.00" bin. I like to look in case there are neat things for stocking stuffers or stickers I can use in my classroom. I saw some eyshadow that looked kind of pretty and I thought it might be nice for Annalisa to play with (it was only $1), so I purchased it. When I got home I was taking it out of the package it came in and I happened to read the warning label. We've all heard that "Don't use the hair dryer while you are in the bathtub or sleeping" warning, but this one really got me too! There was only ONE warning on the package of eyeshadow. It didn't say anything about it being harmful if swallowed, so am I to assume that if Annalisa decides to eat it she will be ok? It didn't say that it isn't to be put in any mucous membranes whatsoever, so once again I guess she could stuff it up her nose and be fine. What it DID say was this "AVOID CONTACT WITH EYES". Now I know there is an Aggie somewhere still standing in front of the mirror wondering how to get the eyeshadow on while avoiding contact with the eyes!!! Go figure!
