son – have you seen those human Barbie people?  I was like, wow …

me – that’s nothing, have you seen the human Ken doll?  Totally creepy!

daughter – that’s literally plastic surgery, making themselves look like plastic dolls

son – yeah, I want to ask, can I spin your head around and squish it and pop it off?

me – *laughs* oh my gosh!

son – what?  I used to do that with V’s Barbies all the time!

Mom: What kind of soap do you want me to make?

Daughter:  Orange scented flower shaped soap!

Son: Whatever you made last time is fine.

Mom: Last time I made you rain scented black soap.

Son: Yeah, that’s fine.

Mom:  You don’t want to try something new?  Like, pine scented green soap?

Son:  No, I’m good with what I have.

Daughter:  That means when you get out of the shower, you won’t smell like anything, you’ll just smell like you just got out of the shower, without BO. 

Son:  Perfect!  I don’t want to smell like a tree, anyway.

This is why feminine floral, fruity scents and flower molds dominate the homemade soap industry, lol. 

Really?

We were chatting about soaping, he had several questions, and then he asked, “So, you say you’d like to make this a business, what’s keeping you from making it a business?”

I kind of laughed.  “Well, you’ve seen my place!  Space, really, at the heart of it.  I just don’t have the room.  I could make soap all day long, but without a place to store it for drying, I just don’t know how I could make this more than a hobby.”

He replied, “What if I could get you the space?”
