Folk Costume Press

I got gummy candy today and this was the description on the bag:

"Its translucent color so alluring and taste and aroma so gentle and mellow offer admiring feelings of a graceful lady."

The candy was grape flavored. Now I'm very admiring of a graceful lady.

For lunch I went to Subway for a sandwich & chips. I was sitting with a friend & we were discussing the merits of living alone (vs roommates in the transition between living with significant others). She was telling me that she likes to have a roommate because if she lived by herself, she might fall in the shower & die inside the bathtub, alone.

There was an old lady sitting next to us who nodded her head in agreement with this (irrational) fear.

But then my friend said that one time she did, in fact, fall in the bathtub & even though her roommate was right outside the door, the roommate didn't bother to ask if she was okay after he heard the crash. So maybe the moral of the story is 1) if you're going to have a roommate, get a nice one that cares if you fall, or 2) avoid eye contact with sad women eating alone in Subway who share the same fear of falling in showers, or 3) you should buy those rubber mats you put in your shower to make it less slippery and absolve yourself of this fear. And live forever, alone.

My fear of falling in the shower is so great that I have four roommates.

I'm going to get you one of those rubber mats, then you can live alone. although that wont help with the rent, will it?

I'll get you a rubber mat that ALSO pays rent

Matt said...

If the rubber mat remembers to wash its dishes in a timely manner, then it's a deal.

my shower is so tiny that i couldn't physically fall if i tried.

this is why i live alone.

Julia Cohen said...

but you could stand up and hug someone in your shower, and never even wabble from side to side
