I'm trying hard to figure out what the big deal is about loofas, squeegies, and liquid soap. I mean, really. I grew up using either Dial or Ivory bar soap. And I've been using them for about 32 years now. Really, I always assumed the liquid soap/squeege method of bathing was for the femme females, the ones who enjoy smelling a bit like a fruit salad covered in honey and milk. You know, kind of a personal "I am Goddess, hear me ROAR" moment for the generation that prefers showers over Calgon baths.
The problem being I've been noticing the trend is catching on with men of my aquaintence now. Mind you, adagiogray
and John aren't exactly pillars of masculinity, but my friend Eddie is fairly butch and I know he had one of those heating clay facial masks. Or my suite mate in college, who played on the Basketball team.
I mean really, my only truely fru-fru bath product is my shampoo, and that's only because I hate the scent of what mom used to call "the green stuff" like Pert and Prell. And I know NO ONE will be smelling my hair that I don't want to, so I can live with an apple shampoo and orange conditioner. And I'll admit to using stewicked
's apricot exfoliant on occasion during the winter when my skin dried out.
I dunno, I guess I'm trying to figure out if switching to a new bathing system is will irrepably damage my self image as a fairly masculine person. I mean I never say I'm str8-acting (I'm not. And generally the folks who say that are also closet cases, and therefore not worth my effort), but I also don't want to come off as SuperFemme the Nelly AVENGER!
Yeah I know, this is the stupidest post I've made in a while.
