'Til Death (or soap shards) Do Us Part

What's wrong with this picture (besides the rust stains indicating a trip to Target is long in the offing)?

I'll tell you what:

The soap shards that are on the left side of the soap holder (also known as MY side) were previously on MB's side (where a big new handsome bar of soap now sits).

Is he trying to tell me that I am the only one adequately trained in the handling of hazardous soap shards?


P.S. I debated whether to post a frivolous post as this on such a solemn day, but I figured I'd go for it, as the rest of my posts are also frivolous, you know, to keep the consistency.

P.P.S. There is still time to win a custom wall decal here.

This is exactly why Hubby has been banned from using soap bars. I don't care if shower poufs and body wash are girlie. Too bad Mister mess maker! And, you've been maced?

Husbands...

Big Mama Cass said...

A good giggle blog is good on a day like today :)

Lisa said...

My husband doesn't know how to handle soap shards either...must be another one of those defects men have.

Just proves we are the smarter sex...

How dare him make that switch? I'd be hiding all the big luscious soap bars which would then force him to use the chips!

Janna Bee said...

Can I tell you I live for frivilous posts like this. Especially on bad days like this.

Rebecca Jo said...

I dont even know the last time we've had soap bars in our house...all liquid, all the time!

Laura said...

Men, I tell ya..

Tater Tot Mom said...

It must be in their man genes or something. What kills me is my hubby will use his bar down to the shards and then just leave them there and start using my soap! Just get another bar, I mean is the cardboard box that hard to open!

Christina said...

Carma!?! What are you doing in my shower. LOL... I think we have the same problem. Then the little soap shards fall to the bottom and block the drain. Ughh!

angelcel said...

'hazardous soap shards' :D

That's cheeky - palming you off with the old bittty bits (there was no pun intended there I assure you). Is he secretly trying to say that he would throw the things away but because you seem to like collecting them, he's being good and giving them to you? ;)

Lucy said...

Too Funny,men, what is it, they just don't get it!

Tina said...

Men. You can't live with them, and you can't wash without their soap shards.

Stephanie Faris said...

Hey, frivolity is a good thing, I think. I did a lighthearted post yesterday too.

I need some more organizer thingies like that. My stuff is all piled under counters in disarray.

Alicia said...

lol....my hubby does the same thing

Melissa B. said...

Oooooohhhh...just like a kid! Does he finish the milk/oj and leave the empty carton in the fridge, too?

Shawn said...

That is why I use a liquid soap with tiny granules to scrub away my dead skin, and my hubby just uses whatever soap that I get on sale.....

whoops---bad wife.

Fruitful Vine2 said...

I guess so ;).

Joy said...

What a stinker. Maybe not literally, as he is familiar with soap obviously, but figuratively.

I went for a number of years using liquid soap/body wash until one day it occurred to me that I would go back to bar soap and save lots of money. Like reuniting with an old friend. ;o)

Mark said...

LOL, I'm in to defend the hairier race! Don't even get me started on your 300 different shampoo/conditioner bottles hogging every corner of the shower or better yet, the 6000 varieties of feminine pad/products hogging my undersink area.

Oh and about those Soap shards? Into the Loofah scrub for me.

Long Live New Bars!

Neil said...

This was not frivolous at all. I finally learned that they were called soap shards. I hate those things.

Yaya said...

Shoot, you literally just reminded me I'm out of soap. All I've got are the darn shards. I never feel clean using the shards.

Fifi Flowers said...

My hubby steals my bar of soap all the time and leaves moi with shards... frustrating! Why is it that only I can walk to the cabinet and open a new box... hmmm

Amanda said...

Frivilous? Hardly!

This is the stuff that we are made of my dear!

So. Did you get it all solved?? (I was going to do a tacky line about solvent.... solved... soap...solvent... blah blah blah)

Later
Amanda

:) I used the kids bathroom so my stuff stays in their bathroom until they are older and will want me to move on.

~Kristen~ said...

Bwwaaaah! In our house it usually ME leaving the soap shards around (I can't stand using them when they are that small)...BUT, then I blame HIM when he doesn't replace them with a fresh new bar for ME! Yeah, I know. I'm lucky he loves me...I wouldn't put up with me! :-)
