Mistakes happen from time to time… they’re inevitable. But, there is one mistake that one should always try to avoid, at all costs.

Never, never ever mix up Twilight Stealth hair gel with a tub of Finest Caviar.

It’s a tad unfortunate that both packages are of a similar shape and colour, but that is entirely where the similarities end. One tastes awful, and the other tastes far worse. One helps to style one’s hair perfectly, and one, well, doesn’t.

I was in the bathroom the other morning, in a rush as I usually am in the morning, and noticed that my tub of hair gel was empty. I dashed to the bathroom cabinet, a room actually just off the landing, and noticed there were no other tubs of hair gel there either.

I dashed to the kitchen, remembering that I had bought some gel from the Olde Shoppe the other day and must have packed it away with the other things. At the back of the cupboard I saw the tub, and swiftly grabbed it.

I dashed back to the bathroom, opened the tub which I thought was a different strength gel as the lettering was slightly different (I try different strengths from time to time as my hair gets used to gels and stuff very quickly). I took the lid off the tub, and had to peel back a clear film. It was a little tough at first, which didn’t help considering I was in a rush and had to do a little ironing before dashing out to work. Eventually, I got the film off, scooped a large amount of this gel into my fingers and smeared it through my hair.

It was then that I realised what I had done.

In no time at all, I was swiftly trying to wash lumpfish roe out of my hair, which isn’t really easy when you are in a hurry.

Finally, I managed it. I couldn’t smell any fish-like smells, and I couldn’t see any signs of roe left in my hair. I managed to scrape the tiniest amount of gel from the old tub, and somewhat styled my hair in the time I had.

I had no time to iron, so put my shirt on as was, and hoped that nobody would notice.

I think I got away with it… nobody mentioned anything to me anyway.

The odd thing is, though, I don’t like caviar. I don’t remember buying any, and the last time I did was over twenty years ago. I don’t think this tub was twenty years old, so I must have picked up the tub of caviar thinking it was hair gel.

Or, someone had placed the tub of caviar in with the hair gel in the shop, and I grabbed the wrong item.

But, it’s an easy mistake to make…An easy mistake

  1. Oh Roe is me… 🙂

    Hope you get some more hair gel my friend – I can’t stand caviar either as it is too salty! 🙂

    God Bless!



  2. And that is why sir, one should iron one’s outfits the night before…;) I’m thinking could it be you bought that caviar thinking it would be great as a hair mask? extra proteins and all ..you know? teehee


    1. Yes Shree – that’s it… extra protein… it’s a good a reason as any! 😉
      I always do my ironing in the morning to ensure I get up early enough to get it done, otherwise I’d have to lie in and be late. There is logic in there somewhere…!


  3. You probably didn’t buy caviar…but that bathroom of yours…lol…no telling what that might get up to when you’re not looking!!
    And it appears to have been encouraging you to taste your hair gel??!! Oooo! That must have tasted seriously awful and disgusting! I wonder if it’s worse than my hair wax…! Oh wolf!


    1. The bathroom probably did it.. it’s always doing things out of the ordinary Icewolf!
      I’d hazard a guess that wax tastes far worse than gel… if I ever get to taste it I’ll let you know!


  4. At least you didn’t go to work that way, Tom. I once forgot to rinse conditioner out of my tresses and could not understand why I looked like I’d bathed in a vat of hair grease when I got to work.


  5. Well I always like a bit of caviar on toast
    with my Champagne, but definitely not in
    my hair, well I shave my head frequently
    so there is not much chance of that one 🙂

    Another fine offering Sir Aquatom 🙂
