Of course, it is different when your brother or sister stays with you. You don't need to repeatedly tell them to turn on the fan before they get in the shower so the mirror won't fog up. They grew up with you, they know how it works. You aren't supposed to turn it on when you get out of the shower and the mirror is already fogged up. Turn it on before you get in the shower- no fog! I always have to explain this to house guests and they look at me all baffled and then turn the fan on when they get out of the shower. Um wool....
I can't ever remember what people tell me to do in their houses either. It's ok.
The other night our little brother spent the night.And by little, I mean 39 years old. Since he's my brother, I didn't clean up or do anything special. I didn't even check to see which soaps were in the shower. Usually what's in my shower are multiple soaps. One moisturizing soap, one scented soap, and one citrusy exfoliating soap (with sand or something in it) that is great for getting paint off your hands. All these soaps are clearly labeled. Each one has its own purpose. I put towels out for Tod then hid the Ambien and Lidocaine patches. He's been here before, he knows how the shower works. He can choose which soap suits his needs by reading the labels on the bottles.
I was so wrong. Apparently, my brother doesn't read the labels on soap bottles and just lathers up without looking. During the last few conversations I have had with my brother, I have heard all about how my "pineapple acid sand soap" has caused some major discomfort and perhaps bleeding on his delicate skin. How could I keep such a torture device in my shower? Why would anyone want to rub that sandy acid all over their bodies?! WHY? WHY? WHY?
I can't stop laughing. Once Karen and I stayed at our cousin's house for a visit. In her shower she had that Origins ginger scrub stuff that everyone was talking about like 12 years ago. It smelled like Chinese food so I totally wanted to try it! I didn't want the Chinese food smell near my face so I rubbed a bit on my feet and KABLAM! I slipped in the shower. That ginger acid sand stuff is really slippery! Water and bits of ginger acid sand splashed everywhere in her tiny bathroom! Why did I put that on my feet? Why? Why? WHY?
I was bruised (not bleeding) but my feet were really soft.
*We do like to have house guests ~ especially the ones we don't clean the house for and who laugh heartily with us when they break our houses or are the victims of bad soap in our showers.
