So my cousin and I have become pen pals…well actually 2! I enjoy receiving mail so much it’s not even funny. Today I received a letter from my cousin. I realized since I was made aware that he sent it out Friday it was probably at home waiting on me! Upon getting home I quickly ran to check the mail and sure as the sun shines there was his letter. Just as a side note, I was on the phone at the time too. Well as I was running into the house I realized that the phone battery was draining so I had to get it on the charger BUT I also had to take a bath. So we can compromise on this right? SUUURRRREE! Outcome as follows….
While still talking, ran to get my phone charger and place the person on speaker so I could draw the bath water. Jersey doesn’t mind as she does the same thing all the time! It is just this understanding among busy women that it is acceptable to a) hear the toilet flush at anytime (some of you might be saying ewww but, it does happen more often than not!), b) hear running water or kids yelling in the background, c) chomping or accidental slurps over the phone OR d) any of the above combinations but not limited to them at one time. So, getting back on track, I plugged in the extension cord safely away from any water source. Next, plugged the charger into the extension cord then extend it across the vanity as close as it would go and kept the conversation going. I started to draw the water. GUSSSSSHHHHHHHHH! Jersey says, “Uh…what’s that?” My response “I am drawing a bath, sorry! I felt like I could use one.” Jersey states, “…no problem! I understand that…” Then I blurt out the best line ever, “I should have been an engineer for as good as this job was to charge my phone, draw a bath, and make this functional!” She just laughed because if anyone who really knew me heard me say that they would know how sarcastic and hilarious that really was. Don’t get me wrong, I could engineer parties and arrangements, rig simple things (such as what I demonstrated in the bathroom), and probably some other items given the production background I have but other than that I could NEVER give you the mathematical equations as to how I figured it out. It just is because I said so…
Well as I still had Jersey on the phone, I slipped into the bathtub. I had brought my cousin, D-A-M-I-A-N’s letter into the bathroom with me as I was planning on reading it once my conversation was over. 1/2 hour later, I started reading his letter while still in the bathtub. I must say, I felt like I was out of another time period. I just imagined myself at the cusp of the 1900’s reading a war letter, just totally relaxed and enjoying myself. Dare I say it was very Jo March out of Little Women?? It was fun! Taking a step out of my comfort zone, feeling the calmness of the water, and ultimately just being was the goal. I came out feeling refreshed and just glorious! That is simply a guilty pleasure…reading letters in the bathtub! Seems kind of out there….but try it! Dare you!!!
So the question I propose to you all tonight is “What is your guilty pleasure???” I would love to see it!
PS: OUTCOME to the multitasking: ALL WAS A SUCCESS!!
