You would think that we had learned our lesson, but no. Last night Portman got conned into leaving Harper’s door open again. All was quiet for about an hour, then Portman was in the kitchen and noticed that the upstairs light was on. “Hmm,” he thought to himself, “I don’t remember leaving the light on.” He was a mere two steps up the staircase when Harper emerged from the bathroom completely naked and covered from neck to toes in Vick’s Vapo-Rub. She had smeared on a layer so thick that you could literally scrape it off with your finger nails! Portman, being the one responsible for leaving the door open, got bath duty, but was unable to remove most of the Vapo-Rub, so we’re just waiting for it to come off on her clothes over the next few days. We continue to find thick handprints of the substance all over the upstairs bathroom in places like door handles, drawer pulls, and on the potty stool. That stuff is really hard to get off! I am confident that her door will remain shut from now on… I hope.
