Scrubbing bubbles

It is hard to take oneself too seriously when one is prone to doing really dumb things. For Christmas, our son and his womanfriend gave me a basket of bath products that included shower gel, bath beads, body lotion, a shower cap, and a heart-shaped soap. I stuck the bath beads in a drawer until I can figure out what to do with them (seeing that I take showers rather than baths). I started using the lotion. I used the shower gel until it was gone, and last night I decided to start using the hand soap, even though it is one of those fancy soaps that one would put out for company but never actually use. So, before I got ready to go to bed, I released the heart-shaped soap from its shrink wrap covering, which was no easy feat, and took it with me into the shower, and this morning I put the hand soap on the attractive stone candle plate I have with designs cut around the rim (made in India), and lit it, and enjoyed watching it burn. Yep, it took a few minutes of vigorous scrubbing in the shower last night to realize that what I was holding in my hand was wax and not soap, and that one of the decorations on the top was actually a wick.

That is a hilarious story. I take baths everynight - I'll use those bath beads... haha You'll have to put on your "readers" next time to see what you actually have there. Hee Hee...
