Quill #6 - Cleanliness is Next to Godessness

The whole family was around for a holiday a few years ago. I don't remember why, but we were discussing bar soap. Our family shares the bar in the tub, as I think many families do, and I happened to mention that I always rinse off the soap before using it on my face. That statement had the kids staring at me with surprise.

I said, "Don't answer these questions out loud."

"Where do you use the bar of soap first, when you take a shower?"

All of them smiled and nodded.

"Now, where do you use it last?"

As if coordinated, the entire bunch scrunched up their faces and said, "Ewww..."

I am a vindicated woman.
