Swimming in shampoo

26th September 2008

Swimming in shampoo

I just got back from a Walgreens run. I do believe that, if I chose to, I could actually swim in shampoo and conditioner.

Every so often they put out a $5 off $20 purchase and when they do the diehards like me just can’t pass it up. If one plans well then one can make a bit of money on the deal. And I figure that any hobby that actually saves me money is a good hobby :)

Earlier in the week, when I was starting to plan this expedition, I was trying to figure out how I could justify buying more shampoo and conditioner, considering that I already have enough to last my family probably another six months at least. And then it hit me!

I’m hosting a baby shower in November and I’ve been told that apparently it’s the custom in America to give a party favour to those that attend. My reaction was - what? why?

Ahem. I was quickly corrected.

So, what in the world am I supposed to give? I’m not going to knit a bunch of booties or create some other kind of baby themed gift. So what do you think I’m going to give? SHAMPOO!!

I realise that’s a rather non-traditional party favour. But, it’s useful. And it smells good. Kinda like a candle! And it’s not the cheap stuff either, it’s L’Oreal. And the bottle is pink! So there you go.

There is a slight chance that I’ll never be asked to host a baby shower again. But hey, the food will be excellent as always. And who couldn’t use some free shampoo?

If you’re coming to the baby shower, please act surprised.
