Warm showers: Awesome, but painful to say good-bye to

Warm showers and baths are the best, but I know that as soon as I step out, it will feel like the next ice age. Nevertheless, I prepare myself mentally to overcome such temperature contrasts by stalling before I get out of the shower.

“Just wrap a towel around,” they say, “you won’t feel cold if you do,” they say. Yeah, that doesn’t work. I’ve even tried dressing in the shower (don’t ask) and I still felt cold getting out. Bath robes work okay, but as long as there’s skin exposed, you’ll feel the cold Arctic breeze. And turning the heat on doesn’t help much either…

Somehow, I think if I stay longer and under warmer water, it will delay the process. You know, because my mind sometimes thinks (probably denial) that time will stop everywhere and I’ll have all the time in the world to get out. I even try to come up with different issues in my head and try to solve them, just to avoid going through the temperature contrast. I know it’s not going to kill me, but before I even step in the shower, I know I’ll have to go through the painful dilemma of when it’s the best time to get out of the shower. I’m sure this isn’t helping the stereotype of women taking ages in the bathroom.

Before I get in the shower, I make sure my clothes are ready for me to put on. Once I find the courage to end the shower session, I plan my escape to be in 5 seconds. I put my bath robe or towel on and dry as I walk…more like run…to put my clothes on. I really don’t like the temperature contrast. Here’s a tip: put your socks on first. I have to say that thanks to my eagerness to stay warm after a shower, it doesn’t take me long to try on clothes at the mall :p.

Stench – A to Z challenge

A to Z challenge letter: S

Stench

First of all, this is NOT about people who are mentally unable, have no access to water, and don’t have the means -this is about those who CAN – so, for the love of everything you hold dear, if you can afford to take a shower/bath and can buy products (even if it means dollar store), then could you please stop murdering my nose, eyes, the will to remain on this planet, and do so?! If you want to stink up your place, fine do it, but when you decide to join the outside world, have respect for others and do not smell. It is so simple. You don’t have to buy expensive bath products nor take a long time in the water, but at least try to mask it with a bit of perfume — just do something. If you have allergies or your skin gets dry, then buy natural products; there are some that aren’t expensive (I buy them). If you have an apartment or a house with running water, you can take a bath. It’s common sense! I’ve heard homeless people wishing for a meal, a warm place and a shower! It is a privilege to even have water. The lurking pestilence that emits when you don’t bathe is not flattering. It’s like those people who own expensive cars and drive them dirty. Please, if you can afford to show off such an expensive car, then you can afford to drive it by a car wash or at least wash it yourself. Honestly, I don’t want to sound mean, but enough is enough!

On a positive note, stinky people can be a good way to control unnecessary cravings. Every time they pass by me, I lose any sugar craving I had at that moment.
