Jedi Shampoo

The directions on my new shampoo, which smells of almond and shea butter:

"Massage shampoo into your locks and let the moisturizing ingredients infuse every strand. Rinse and allow the much-needed alone time leave you feeling just as replenished as your hair."

It really says that. I read it this morning while I was amidst the Moisturizing Ingredients Infusing the Strands phase. The directions on the back of the conditioner were identical, which is strange. I feel like someone's trying to pull one over on me. Like some sort of shampoo Jedi mind trick.

It seems like they are marketing this shampoo to a very specific set of people, doesn't it? Who in this world can only get a moment's peace in the shower (and sometimes not even then)? MOMS. That's right, ladies. I found our shampoo. And it was a complete accident, too. Talk about serendipity.

(What's next, I wonder? Directions on toilet paper? "Enjoy your much-needed alone time...")

I neglected to mention that there are some dads out there whose only moments of peace are in the shower, too. Sorry, dads. Didn't mean to leave you out.

Your kids leave you alone when you're in the bathroom? That's when my popularity soars. Also, when Ethan inevitably cracks his head against the piano...

These are the directions on my shampoo bottle:
"if you don't already know what to do with this, then you're probably too dumb to even know how to read, so why bother writing the instructions."
