Thread Name: Your worst blunder?
Subject: RE: Your worst blunder?
I went to a nature preserve that pleasantly mild and warm day this week and walked around the pond, just breathing the fresh air and anticipating spring . After an hour walk I felt a little tired , so I when saw a log near the edge of the pond(presumably put there by the nature people who oversee this green space) I sat down.

When I got up, I saw that my pants and my good thick (favorite !! ) blue sweater were
mottled with streaks of .......something black- tar??? paint????is there such
a thing as indelible sap?!!??? (Other than me feeling like a sap for wearing
nice clothes to tromp thru the woods)
I ve tried getting the stains out with laundry soap, dawn dish detergent,
and baking soda. And plenty of elbow grease (mine).

Oh, and for the nitpickin', detail devoted type of folk who patrol many a forum
and may want to point out that the initiator of this thread was requesting
stories of a musical theme:

Ya shoulda heard me wail the the blues when I realized
I had ruined my clothes!
