Addiction to shower gells?

By Wednesday 21 January 2009Happiness & Joy, Life, Love & Relationships, Thinking

“Let me look in that cubboard?” Curious David said. Using my body as a barrier: “You won’t understand.” Lovingly David moves me out of the way. He opens up the cubboard, looks at me and says: “Your ill.”

This is how David discovered my 20+ shower gells all lined up. He doesn’t understand! So to help explain I told him this story:

I was once in morrisons and saw a particular brand of shower gells that I love buy-one-get-one-free. So I couldn’t leave them there for that, could I?

(I seem to have inherited my mums attraction for bargins.)

So I bought 10 and got 10 free. David’s response to this was: “Your very ill.”

I am unsure were this need to have plenty shower gells in stock. Perhaps someone once made a comment about my hygiene? (Doubt it as always have been very clean.) Or did I once run out? And my OCD (obsessive, compulsive disorder) set in – giving me a need to stock up and put them in an order. The latter is probably true. So Ok, I do have an addiction to shower gells, but perhaps there is worse addictions?

And can I just say at this point: Supermarkets you don’t help! You always have offers on them and place them on the end of the isle – so I can’t even aviod them by not going down the isle.

So what do you think? Am I “ill” as David suggests? Do I have an addiction? Leave a comment.

Blog about random things soon.


(P.S Oh and in relation to David – I will let you know what’s going on, when I do.)

    buy 10 and get 10 free is a good deal… but maybe a lot in one go? Still I admire your pragmatism which is a trait surely for David to admire!! And, one of the worst things is running out of something like showergel or scraping the last six molecules out of the container thing (whatever it’s called). So good for you. Imagine the soapy fun you can have together 😉

    Ha ha, David has now decided he loves this aspect of me.

    If he ever wants to get in my good books, he can just turn up with a shower gell and I’m happy.

    We even went in to the pound shop looking for a diary (for him – yes, I know we are the end of January now!) and spent ages smelling all of the different shower gells. Ha ha.
