On the plus side:
1) We didn’t have anywhere we needed to be, so I was free to spend an hour cleaning the carpet
2) That section of carpet is in a hard to notice spot near our bedroom closet, and not in full view of house guests.
3) I miraculously had both rags and a nearly full bottle of nail polish remover within arm’s length.
Still… there’s nothing good about bright pink nail polish spilled all over cream carpet. Really.
