My Wife And I Play A New Game

My wife and I have taken up playing a new game. Though I wouldn’t advise playing it, I will tell you about it. Believe me, this game isn’t as fun as it sounds.

Recently, my wife picked up a new body of body wash at Target. She brought it home and placed the bag containing the wash in the living room.  Immediately, my wife and I began playing the new game of ‘ignore the body wash.’

The rules were pretty simple. All each of us had to do to play was ignore the fact that there was a bottle of body wash sitting in the living room. The one thing we could not do, which would have resulted in a loss and made the other player a winner, was to take it upstairs and put it in the shower where it belonged.

Neither of us did this.

However, then my wife apparently decided that the game was boring and that we needed a new game. The new game was ‘hide the body wash.’ She cleaned the living room.

It was about that time that I decided to give up on the former game as well. I was going to concede and take the body wash to the shower. However, I could not find it. Neither could my wife. She had no recollection of moving the body wash, yet it was nowhere I looked. Obviously, the game had shifted into ‘find the body wash.’

As of this time, the body wash is still unfound.

Frankly, my wife and I are both lousy at this last game. The only way to locate the body wash is to probably bring in a ringer, ask someone over and make them look for it. I’m not feeling good about their chances either. I think we just need to buy a new bottle of body wash.

Perhaps this time we should take upstairs to the shower sooner.

  1. Incidentally, the body wash has been found. Turns out, my wife stuck it in a tote in our linen closet. She just found it.
