When my ex-wife left, I went through all the shit in the house to get rid of “her stuff.”
She had the curious habit of buying two of everything. Two shampoos, two conditioners, two hair sprays, two deoderants, etc. She also would have to change shampoos after every bottle. She had said something like, “When your hair get used to one kind of shampoo it won’t get clean any more. So you have to switch.” I chalked that little bit of knowledge up as something she learned when the boys went to one room and the girls to another in sixth grade.
In the cabinet under the sink, which was her domain, I found dozens of bottles of shampoo and conditioner! I gave them to my sister a couple of years ago and she still hasn’t run out!!
boli 17 You’re mad. Mad, I tell you!!

Sledman’s Fiancee 14 Not a winner after all, but
pray for me. With this
kind of impending danger my
next shower could be my last.

dangers of questioning it.

Sledman 1 – .99 cent bottle of Suave and a
lot of fear.

Sounds like she was waiting for that big hike in shampoo costs when the settlement is reached in their court case. Oh wait, that’s cigarettes.
Let’s not even talk about shelf space in the cabinets…
What the hell is a body puff?? Is it that lace, kind of mutant sponge looking thing?
(covers face, pulls collar up, looks both ways… whispers…)
Does it really feel good to use?
Oh shit… somebody is coming… (Starts whistling the Ballad of the Green Berets)
My SO has the habit of buying one brand to try it, deciding she does not like it after about a week and moves on to some other brand. So under the sink is a graveyard of partially used shampoos. I don’t there is 17 there yet, but it is getting close.
Okay, okay. So I’m have a little less machismo than some guys–I use a puff. It helps develop more lather and cleans more effectively due to the texture. Aside from the puff, soap and one bottle of shampoo, I don’t have any other products for cleaning my body.
I’ll probably regret the ensuing wrath of my wife, lilah, but this is a rough estimate of what she has. At my apartment, she has finally removed the majority of her personal products, with the exception of a bottle of shampoo and conditioner which I provide for her. At her place there are about six bottles of shampoo and conditioner, four different types of soap for different body parts, and probably another five different types of moisturizers (all of which are necessary you see, because you can’t use the same lotion on your elbows as your face–as if moisturizing one’s elbows was necessary).
Sorry Sledman, but I couldn’t let you get away with this one - at least not until you’re on the people pages so others can see that you’re, well, how do I say it? Follically challenged? Hell, that one bottle probably lasts the whole year!
Still, 14 bottles does seem excessive. But, knowing your fiance (and having lived through the nightmare of going to Bath and Body Works with her once), it doesn’t surprise me in the least.
Nen, your comment reminds me of that old Zest Body Wash ad featuring football player Ironhead Heyward (“Hey Ironhead, what’s with this thingy?”)
I myself have two bottles of shampoo in my shower. One is empty. I’m lazy.
Sorry matt_mcl, but that just doesn’t cut it. I’m afraid I’m going to have to revoke your gay liscense, furthermore, you’ll have to be quarantined to ensure that single shampoo using, lack of puff toting, sorry self doesn’t contaminate the rest of the homosexuals around here. Since I use a puff, I’ll fill your place. Oh Esprix…
Whoa, buddy! Have you ever FELT rough elbows? They’re like sandpaper! You need some heavy-duty lotion for them, and definitely not the same lotion you would use on your face. Back me up on this, ladies.
