Usually I don't go around asking tons of people for advice, but you gotta admit, this is a sticky situation.
Okay, two South Park references in two seconds. I really must be losing my mind.
On a completely different note, how can you buy something and completely misplace it while it's still IN THE BAG? I bought a little roller to complete my bathroom paint job, and I put it in some kind of alternative reality, because it is nowhere to be found. Am I doomed to look at blue painter's tape for the rest of my days? ARGH.
