The Order of Things
Anyways, while I was standing in the shower, enjoying the hot water running down my body and warming me up, I started to think about a conversation the husband and I had in the car on the way back to the city last night.
For some reason we started talking about the way we each have showers. As in, did we have a certain order of doing things? Was it different each time? Was there an order of product? And so on.
We established that we both do the same routine each time - although our routines are different.
For instance, when I get in the shower I get completely wet, then shampoo my hair. I leave the shampoo in while I shave my legs and scrub my face, then rinse it out. Next I work conditioner into my hair and let that stay in while I use this creamsicle (yum, smells so freaking good!) bath sugar to leave my skin smooth. I also have a certain order of washing, but no, I won't tell you about that. Once my skin is all smooth, I rinse the conditioner out of my hair and get out of the shower. Then when I'm all toweled off I lather myself up with lotion to help ward off winter skin.
Now the husband doesn't follow all those steps because, for one, he doesn't shave his legs. He also doesn't use conditioner or wash his face in the shower, plus he uses regular old Lever 2000 soap - but he does follow a certain "order" in the shower.
So that got me to thinking - does everyone follow a routine when they shower? Or are we just some sort of freaks that always wash the same way?
