Little Women (1994)
Friedrich Bhaer: You know, when first I saw you I thought “ah, she is a writer”.
Jo: What made you think so?
[Friedrich indicates her inky fingers]
Like Jo Marsh (in the 1994 movie adaptation of “Little Women”), sometimes I feel I wear the badge of my craft on my hands. I have been known to turn up at work with paint spattered hands…which I am oddly proud of, in a “I’ve been painting and I can prove it” kind of way. However, the problem is that I – honestly – can’t get the paint off my hands!
Does anyone have a handy remedy that doesn’t involve using an abrasive cloth?!!!
