I went out early this morning to water some container plants, and was shocked to see what looked like bright yellow paint slashed across my neighbors' (X) garage door, front door, mailbox, and driveway. I thought about calling them, but it was early, and I figured they'd notice it when they got up. So I went back in and had my coffee.
And after a bit, another neighbor (Y) came by and asked if I had X's cell number, and had I seen. Y said he'd checked, and it felt tacky still, but he doesn't have much sense of smell, so couldn't identify it. We called X, and X said that one of the kid's friends had gotten egged recently, so it was probably something like that. But they were away for the weekend.
Y and I agreed that we'd wash it off, after I took some pictures (just in case it was serious) and he had some breakfast with his family. Then I put on shoes and went over, and as soon as I got near, I could smell the mustard. Wow, that much mustard smells strong! But that was good news, since mustard is pretty washable.
We started hosing and scrubbrushing, and another neighbor came and brought a big broom and used that to help wash away the driveway mustard.
Is mustard the new thing?
