[overheard by Mike]
Colin took a 90-second shower tonight. 2.5 of them, actually.
Beth: “Did you use water AND soap?”
Colin: “No. Just water.”
Beth:”Then go back in there and wash your hair and your whole body with soap and shampoo.”
Colin: Grumbling. “Okay.”
90 seconds later. “Okay, mom, I’m done.”
Beth: “Did you shower again and use soap?”
Colin: “Yes. I washed my hair and private parts with soap and water, but I didn’t get into the shower.” [Let’s call this the half shower.]
Beth: “Um. Okay. I don’t even want to know how you did that, but I need you to G-O B-A-C-K I-N-T-O the bathroom RIGHT NOW and take a REAL shower WITH soap AND shampoo.”
Second-and-a-half time’s the charm.
