Calgon...you really disappoint.
So the other night I found myself parousing the bubble bath aisle over at Smiths. I've been having a yucky spell with the depression recently and thought a lovely bubble bath would be just the right thing. Now don't worry about me. It's really nothing more than feeling utterly and completely overwhelmed with motherhood and the never ending challenges that go along with it, which in turn feeds other things. Nasty cycle it is. Maybe it's time to up my dose! HA HA! Or remember to take it anyway.
Anyhow, as I stood there viewing my options I came across the box of Calgon.
Calgon....Take Me Away!
YESSSSSSSSSSS......that's EXACTLY what I needed. My thoughts rushed back to my childhood and the Calgon commercials that made me so jealous that someone could have such a delightfully bubbly bath. I mean, I can totally remember the lady sprawled out in her mountains of bubbles being whisked off in her thoughts to some field of flowers. Yes. That was exactly what was in order for me.
So I get home, get the kids taken care of and lock myself away for my mental reprieve in a bubbly oasis.
I don't know what kind of magic the lady in the commercials possessed other than perhaps using a bottle of Dawn dishsoap. I got nothin' more than a few spit bubbles. Seriously. I even put in double the recommended amount cause I wanted to disappear in suds. I even turned on the jets to perpetuate the bubbly process and you guessed it. NOTHING.
So my advice to you is, forgoe the box of Calgon. She lies. She's not gonna take you away ANYWHERE. Stick with the Thomas bubbles.
Those babies ROCK.
