This weekend, The Wife and I are at her father’s in Germantown, Maryland, where he is in a play in which we’re going to see him tonight. On the way here, we stopped at a convenience store below Harrisburg and while I usually don’t comment on such things, I felt compelled to tell one of the employees how impressed I was with the cleanliness of the restroom. I also commented to my wife on how modern the bathroom was– especially the tiles and the automatic faucets, which actually worked unlike the ones in Walmart that never seem to work.
I was so excited that I called my sister to tell her, as I am apt to do when I find something noteworthy about which to call or text her, which this definitely was. She immediately posted to the entire world via Facebook that:
My brother, who is traveling to Maryland, just called to tell me he and his wife just stopped at a convenience store with a nice, clean bathroom. “and the soap smelled lovely,” my sister-in-law said. “No, really…it was designed really nice,” my brother said. “The tiles were really nice too. They were very modern.” Wow it is really an eventful drive for them I guess.
My wife later corrected my sister that she really had said that the soap was “pleasant,” and since we were on the topic of soap, I threw open the door to all of my sister’s other friends on what their favorite soap was. My sister’s favorite soap is Walmart soap, she said. One of her friends said the pink “mystery” soap that is in dispensers at some restaurants. Another said “Dial” soap.
So now I’m going to open the door, so to speak, for all of my readers. What is your favorite soap and why? Personally, I always liked Lava, because of its sandpapery quality — so rough and gets the job done, much like yours truly. Cue the fuzzy guitar music. 😉 What’s yours?
