you can cross corn chips off your list of potential good shower snacks.

yesterday i went on a nice long bike ride that included some climbing. especially since i was a little sore from a ballet class and another ride the day before that, it was hard work! but a really nice ride.

when i got home i was really hungry, but i also felt totally disgusting. i wanted, equally and passionately, a shower and dinner. immediately. after eating a few handfuls of chocolate chips, i settled on a brilliant compromise. inspired by liz hatch's brilliant bath-and-a-beer, i decided that i would have a snack in the shower.

and, just for the record, corn chips aren't a very good choice. they are delicious and satisfying, but since i didn't have anywhere to put them except the ledge that was just a few feet above the bottom of the tub, water dripped down my arm and into the bowl.

but i do think there's something to this snack and shower combination. i've been thinking of snacks that would withstand water better, and i have some ideas for the next time i need to eat and wash at the same time.

i generally despise Seinfeld, but i can only think of Kramer's "I prepared it as I bathed" line!

Shower+beer is also dreadfully decadent after a long day. Or a short day.

Take your pick.

bb: yes! i still laugh when i think of that episode...which i haven't seen since we watched it in...1997?

meh: yes. i believe that too. i think that i am going to start branching out in my quest for excellent bathing X food and/or drink collabs.

just make sure you don't have to wide a temperature difference. if you're in a really hot shower and drink really cold liquid, it can make your heart race. perhaps save the ice cold stuff for a warm bath. damn, now i want a beer.

that is excellent safety advice. and some day when you return to america we can have some beers. possibly at the beach. that is kind of like being in a bath, except that it isn't awkward to be there with your brother. i mean, post-1987. because that was fun!

ps: sorry about the fish soap dish.

it's cool. sorry about the chicken bowl where we kept the matches for the stove.

cheese. definitely cheese. it's room temperature (keeping her safe for you bb) and what isn't made better by adding cheese?

sarah said...

yes! b.f.h., always with the good problem solving! where would i be without you people?

b.f.h. said...

You would probably be dirty and without cheese. That's just too terrible to contemplate, let's not find out!

sarah said...

without you, b.f.h., i would be many things. but definitely naked would be one of them. or at least partly naked.
