Prompt 4 Something Mundane
I laughed at this prompt.
We have a saying in our house. 95% of life is mundane, just working and keeping things ticking over until you get to the lovely 5%, that’s what makes the mundane bearable.
How polite I am being, mundane indeed ;0
I was at the hairdressers today, (that was the 5% bit). We were talking about hair products, (no thanks I don’t need any) and the brushes and the hand made jewellery they are selling and then she said, “Ooooh have you seen this?” “no, what is it?”
“Well,” she said “It is a natural deodorant, it is 100% pure and natural, made from potassium sulphate and mineral salts from Thailand” I think she has been on a course!
“You rub it on to your wet skin in the shower or bath, and then rub it under your arms, or your feet or (now she is whispering!) anywhere you usually (barely a murmur now!) sweat”
I was laughing out loud.
“Oh for goodness sake let me look at it”
It was a very beautiful looking, smooth crystal clear, oval stone that fit nicely in the palm of my hand. Ergonomic would be a good word to use here. It is quite heavy.
Ok, I have some other natural crystal, and salt type products from that part of the world, I do like them, I have just been paid, the sun is shining, I’ll give it a whirl.
My hairdresser lady is wrapping it up, along with the new brush! when she said. “Now don’t forget to use it wet, it takes a few days to work but…” She didn’t get a chance to finish her sentence.
“what do you mean?” I took a deep breath, “how many days?”
“It is the weekend and you said you had next week on leave!”
So, don’t visit me next week, I am on leave trying a new deodorant.
I am going to a wedding on Sunday, do you think a fabulously strong scented Lilly buttonhole would be good?
Have you something more mundane than deodorant?
There is a bonus to this post.
I have written a post about deodorant before. Shimelle had a prompt in a previous class about writing letters to in-animate objects. Some people were kind enough to say that they liked my post. You can read it here if you have a moment.
I was thinking, if Shim asks us to post anything about continuation, or continuity in posting, I will, for once in my life, be ahead of the game.
Shall I post a picture? The new hair cut? the new wonderfully bright pink brush? or the deodorant stone? (before I have used it of course)
