He's in for a Surprise

Last night, as I was taking a shower, I reached up to grab the shampoo. Hair soaking wet, dripping right into my face, I realized the bottle was empty. I put it back, reached up and grabbed a bottle my philosophy shampoo, body wash, and bubble bath - Strawberry Milkshake. I washed my hair, followed up with conditioner and finished my shower.

Later that night, as the hubby and I were drifting to sleep, I said: You know, you used up the shampoo and didn't refill the bottle. He said he meant to, but forgot. Then he asked if there was anything he could us in the morning. I told him he could use the Strawberry Milkshake stuff and drifted off to sleep.

This morning, I noticed he had left the still-empty bottle of shampoo in the shower, except he had squeezed every last drop out of it.

Then I went to put on deodorant (As an aside, I don't know when we started sharing deodorant, but we do). I noticed there were two drops of Mitchum gel left. I used it underneath my left arm. Frantically, I searched the hall closet for another Mitchum. Nothing. I grabbed a Secret and applied it underneath my right arm. Immediately, I noticed an aroma -

Now, all I can do is smell myself - one side of me smells fresh, while the other side smells like pears.

It's going to be a long day.

But the greatest part is when he puts it on and realizes that it's pear. Take that, silly husband! It's punishment for leaving empty bottles in the bathroom (insert very, very evil laugh here).

You're making me laugh thinking about a fruity smelling guy. I'm sure he'd hate that.

I have never known anyone who smelled like pears, but I have some dishwashing detergent that smells like apples. I like it.
