**UPDATE: The shirt is RUINED! I ruined a gorgeous silk shirt! The dry cleaners couldn't fix it. Is it bad that I am this upset over a piece of clothing!?!**
I am travelling for work today (and yesterday). My boss and I were done with our recruiting presentation and decided that we needed a snack. Lo and behold there was a marble slab next to our hotel. I was happily eating my chocolate ice cream with butterfinger mixed in when I dripped some of it on my dry clean only silk shirt! I was devastated! As soon as we got back to the hotel I googled how to get chocolate out of a silk shirt--soak in cold water. I ran to the bathroom and filled the sink with cold water and to soak my shirt. I checked on it an hour later and the black had started to bleed on to the ivory!! I frantically grabbed my purse and ran down stairs to the front desk and asked where the nearest dry cleaners are located. Thankfully, I called them first to see if it would be possible to pick up my shirt by 3 today, because that is what time I am leaving to head home. They said that they couldn't do it by 3, but that their main store could.
After a few missed turns, I finally found the place. The girl behind the counter assured me that they would do all that they could to get out the black dye. I guess I will find out today at 3! I
HOPE it all comes out. It is one of my favorite work shirts and isn't available in the store anymore.
My evening wasn't completely ruined by this episode. I got to have dinner with a sorority sister who is attending OU Law school. It was so much fun to catch up on everything!
