Deb's Bottle

6"x4" oil on raymar panel. A good friend gave me this found bottle. It has the words "Glyco-Thymoline" stamped on its side. We were hoping that it was some mystery chemical used by miners or settlers that would explode when it came in contact with regular household items. You know, like an eight year old boy. When I was eight, if it didn't explode and/or burn in at an accelerated rate or at least in neat colors, I didn't have much use for it. Thank goodness my eyebrows grew back. Moving on... I looked up Glyco-Thymoline to find out that it was—drumroll please—mouthwash. Kind of a let down, but the eight year old in me still hopes it was exploding mouthwash. Anyway... I still like the bottle, funny bulging sides and all. Thanks, Deb.
