3-D & Old Soap

Posted on August 3, 2008 - Filed Under self reflect

I write, eyes struggling to look at a blurred computer screen, brain straining to interpret what my eyes are doing. We went and saw Journey to the Center of the Earth 3-D today, and despite my aversion to rides (unless on a bike I am steering, or a car I am driving) and other things startling me, it was quite a fun movie. I am however, REALLY struggling from the aftermath of eyestrain and brain function. As you can see – it had quite an impact on all of us.
Meanwhile, I can’t help to point out the lovely bar of soap that emerged from our soap pile. Justin returned to a shower vacant of soap – so I instructed him to dig one out of the bottom drawer. This is the first time in the 8 years we have lived here that HE has requested a bar of soap! In fact, soap would last a year – yes – just one bar – unless we had company! Don’t ask me what he was doing; I expect from the length of time he kept himself in the shower and the amount of steam that bellowed out from under the bathroom door, Justin was simply good at sterilizing himself with the power of pure agua [and the ongoing overwhelming and overused chlorine of city water]. Anyhow, the bar of soap looked dirtier than he was. He handed me an ivory bar that looked like it had come from the bottom of a cowboy’s dusty satchel in the 1870’s. I had no idea that ivory soap, 99% pure soap, could go as rancid as a peanut in the summer sun.
