You know that episode of Friends where Monica teaches Chandler how to appreciate a bath? Well, I’ve been doing that with the Snook. Our new house has this big, deep, old-fashioned claw-footed bathtub that’s so long I can stretch my legs out fully in it. It even came with this groovy little brass shelf/basket that sits across the middle to hold your Diet Coke and chocolate. (Well, really it’s for soap, but my way is more fun.) Anyway, as you might imagine we’ve both been taking way more baths than usual since we moved in. I’m personally a big fan of the LUSH bath ballistics, which make the water all fizzy and perfumed. Some of them even have rose petals and seaweed and glitter in them! Of course, the Snook being a manly fellow, he has – up until this point – refrained from polluting his bath water with all the crap I seem to find necessary. Today that all changed, though, when I brought home a “Blue Skies and Fluffy White Clouds” Bubble Bar. I demonstrated to him that you just break off a chunk and throw it in the running water, and voila! You have mounds of big fluffy bubbles to play in. He didn’t realize he’d come out smelling of patchouli, though, til after he’d been soaking in it for nearly an hour. Tee hee. 🙂

How do you like your bath? Or are you a shower person?

  1. Oooh, sounds delish! I lurve baths. I actually make myself cold before I get in to heighten the experience. Oh yeah!

  2. I’m a shower person, big time. I like the initial bathtub immersion (hot, soapy water) but hate the end (lukewarm, scummy water–blech.)

  3. I only like baths when I’m chilled-to-the-bone-cold, like after a cold weather workout. Otherwise, I get kinda ansy sitting in the water getting wrinkly and trying not to get the book/magazine/hair wet. And then I have to rinse off with a shower afterward, anyway, which defeats the whole purpose.

    Bottom line: I’m a shower person.
