So I'm a tad OCD. But I prefer to think of my idiosyncrasies as fun little quirks. So let's just call this whole post documentation of fun quirks, okay? I like for my shampoo & conditioner to match. You know, same brand and type of product. I don't like to mix it up and use, for example, V05 coconut scented moisturizing shampoo with an Herbal Essences None of Your Frizzness conditioner. I know it's stupid, but that's just how I am, so hush. If I empty the conditioner before I'm done with the shampoo, I either have to go buy another bottle of conditioner to use until I finish out the shampoo or I abandon the bottle altogether. (Don't worry, I give it to my husband or kids to use---I don't throw it away! That's wasteful!) So, knowing that about me, imagine my horror when I got into the shower this morning, already feeling a little rushed, and found this.
I stood there with water running down my body, trying to decide what to do. I couldn't double-condition. I needed to wash my hair! I decided that I had to do the only thing I could---just use the old half-empty bottle of shampoo I already had. I figured I'd take one of these bottles of conditioner back to the store later and trade it for shampoo.
So I grabbed this bottle of shampoo, perched on the little ledge where my husband and son's bottles belong. You know, next to the hairy bar of soap. Boys are so gross.
I realized then that my husband and son don't condition their hair, so there were no partially empty bottles of conditioner to use. So I resorted to the 2 purple bottles of lavendar-scented stuff that I started with.
When I got to work, someone told me that I smelled so good! I just laughed because I couldn't tell them which shampoo or conditioner did the trick. After all, I should smell like a honey-coconut-lavendar-peach/apricot smoothie about now. (My bodywash is peach/apricot scented.)
If you get a whiff of a fruity mixture today in my neighborhood, it's probably me!
