During the holiday shopping season, I made an impulse buy at the mall.  There was this giant sign in the window of Bath and Body Works saying, "Buy 1, Get 1 Free!"  I was sold.  I don't usually buy anything from that store, but the temptation was irresistible.  I bought two containers of wonderfully scented hand soap.  When I got home I put one bottle at the kitchen sink (that soap was about gone anyway) and one in the hall bathroom.

Life was good.  For the moment.

And then the twins happened.

About three days after this trip to the mall, Annie and Maddie dumped out the whole bottle of soap.  All over the counter.  All over the floor.  Hand prints on the walls.  And the rest of it went all over and IN the toilet. 

It was very sad.  I may have mentioned my disappointment to a few of my closest friends.  On facebook, and at my Primary presidency meeting.

So for Christmas I got 4 bottles of hand soap. Everyone was so thoughtful to my misfortunes.  But I learned from my mistakes.  The nice soap is not in the hall bathroom.  There's some in the master bath, but the push spout gets put in the "lock" position every time I'm done.

Oh dang! The things we will laugh at later, huh?

That's so nice of your friends! And now you'll have soap to last the whole year through!
