that'd be upsetting, rob. i'm sorry your stuff got ruined.
my Mom makes me so mad sometimes. she doesn't ruin my things (except for shrinking about $1,000 worth of GAP sweaters
.) but she takes over my clothes and shoes. i wouldn't mind so much but she does it all the time! i had to hide my favorite shoes from her.
my Dad has a tendency to get curious about my new stuff and has to try it out, but then he leaves it alone, mostly.
but he uses up all my spices (if i catch him in my $90 spice rack i'll scream), after i caught my Dad using my rather expensive seasalt for pasta water and then after he used up an entire bottle of olive oil and my Brother ate a mostly-full gallon sized bag of my homemade beef jerky (he left 3 slivers in the bag), i made it very clear that they are not to so much as glance in the general direction of my kitchen items or foods. i might be a waif but i sure can yell!
