Three days ago it attacked me while I was showering, nearly killing me! I almost died naked! It doesn't get any worse then that! I imagine myself in the afterlife -- other spirits asking me how I died. Can you tell a lie in heaven? Being lost at sea is so much more exciting. I just don't think eternity would be as fun if I had a naked death hanging over me!
Since I live in an apartment, there really isn't too much I can do to it. Any punishment I could think of would get us evicted... maybe even resulting in an arrest. So I did the next best thing. I decided to boycott it. Yep, that's right, I will no longer bath in that tub!
Okay, so that wasn't the smartest idea. After day three of no showers, the only one I was punishing was myself. How unfair is that? I knew I had to give in when my hair started styling itself into some funky version of a mohawk. My husband started complaining about the smell that lingered around the house... and the kids wouldn't cuddle with me. What's their problem!? Can't they tell I am trying to make a statement! I need some support here!
I gave in. I couldn't take it anymore. I took a long hot shower, trying real hard not to enjoy it... but I just couldn't help myself! It felt so good to be clean. As I climbed out, and toweled myself off, I sighed with satisfaction. That was the best loss I ever had to endure.
I think I heard the tub laugh at me, as I left turning off the light. You may have won this time, evil bathtub, but tomorrow is another day!
I just wanted to take a minute and thank C.J. over at My House in the Village for the amazingly sweet review she did on me. Made me cry (I am such a baby).
And about my post yesterday, I am really happy about all the feed back I got! I must have struck a cord... and here I thought it would be one of those slow days. I appreciate ALL the wonderful comments. You all had EXCELLENT points. You have taught me that there are virtues of texting as well. Thanks for all your support and I look forward to hearing from all of you again soon.
