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. 



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?”

Mom: *Grumbling about the recently discovered virus on her computer.  Grumble, grumble. GRUMBLE.*

Daughter:  Is the plural for virus “virii” or “viruses”?

Mom:  I think both are used, but I think “virii” is the more correct form.*

Son: I want to make it so the plural for squid is “squad.”


*Mom was wrong, it is in fact viruses.
