A funny thing happened the other day. My mom, who spoils me beyond anyone's imagination, heard me say something about how I needed some laundry detergent. This conversation was around the time that I had two puking children, so the laundry room was working overtime. She said that she needed to go to Sam's for some things and after a while came back with a bottle that I hadn't seen in my house, well, ever! I was in awe of the fact that my mom bought me a Sam's sized jug of Tide..not that she wouldn't ever do such a thing, because she does things like this all the time, but because she bought TIDE! ...the couture of laundry detergents. I was trying to remember the last time I bought Tide, and I don't think I ever have...ever. Only because it's so expensive, and because I'm so cheap. She laughed at me. I covet that Tide. I use it sparingly so I can maybe make it last longer. Then when it's gone, we'll go back to having average smelling, but still clean laundry.
