The bull’s-eye incident.

Remember how I like to shout things beyond the bathroom walls?  (If not, read this.)

Well, once upon a time, I was working so much that it seemed wise to me to make a special New Year’s resolution. (I take my resolutions very seriously.) I decided that I’d slot a hot, relaxing bath into my calendar every single week. This time of relaxation literally had to be penciled in or it would never happen. Naturally, as a woman, I took to multitasking in the tub. I’d bring books, magazines, the lap top, dinner, you name it, into the tub with me.

One evening I set my little, across-the-lap shelf over the tub and situated a cold beer, some flipsides pretzel-crackers (Mmmmmm…) and blue cheese crumbles. The problem with blue cheese crumbles is that they, well, crumble. They also drip, drop and roll off the cracker altogether.

Brian was unaware of my evening entertainment until he got summoned.

Me, from the tub, “BRIIIIIIIIIIIAN! Get IN here! You HAVE to SEE this!”

Brian, perplexed, appeared, “What? What is it?”

Me, “LOOK! It’s a bull’s-eye! The crumble landed RIGHT in my bellybutton! Seeeee?!”

While Brian (and probably the rest of the world) thought that was disgusting, I – being ever so competitive – felt like a winner (though I honestly didn’t even know I was playing that game). A few moments later I looked down and my prize crumble was gone, having disintegrated into the rest of the warm bath water.

Ok, ew.

I’ll be honest; towards the end of my bath time, I was almost bathing in cheese.

The moral of the story? Keep your New Year’s resolutions… and it doesn’t hurt to shower after a bath.

    Success! I know what you mean. I love it when things “fall into place” like a game. It’s no wonder we like puzzles.
