David got into the baby vapor rub.  He smeared it on his hands and in the doorway of the dining room.  I immediately cleaned him off and scrubbed myself–the smell makes me sick.  I put what’s left of the tub up  in a cabinet.  And I confess, I forgot about the doorway.  About two hours have passed.  And David saw the doorway.  Celia whined, “Ewww!  David has stuff on his hands!”  He held up his glistening palms proudly.  I simply said, “Go wash your hands.”  He came out a moment later, and proudly lifted his arms.  His underarms now glistened.  I asked, “Did you put it under your arms?”  He nodded real big, “It’s for my exercises!”
