PSA: minty fresh

For today's public service announcement, I'd like for you to envision that while home for Thanksgiving, you head to Trader Joe's to stock up on various non-perishable, non-essential, but nonetheless wonderful, items. You find yourself on the household aisle as you scan for the luxurious shea butter soap imported from France under the moniker Trader Jacques, to which your beloved aunt introduced you. Upon finding no trace of it (and confirming that they are, indeed, out of stock) you look at the other soaps and are intrigued by a fair trade pure Castile hemp peppermint soap made with organic oils. (Actually, you're only intrigued by the peppermint part.) Take a moment to really consider the potential problems besides the therapeutic benefits. I submit to you that there are SOME body parts that interpret minty/tingling as just plain BURNING. The upside is, you are keenly aware of when all the soap has (mercifully) all washed away.

You're welcome.

My dad has this bio-degradable peppermint soap that he always brings to Lake Powell. My biggest recommendation is to be sure that you WASH IT ALL OFF of your hands before putting in contacts. OW.

Never let it be said that I don't learn truly valuable things from you.
