What's Your Fun Bath Tub Story?

I have a fun bathtub story I thought I'd share, in hopes that you might share yours as well. The subject came up recently when I was buying a Christmas gift from Anne Keefe. We laughed, and thought it would be fun to share the story with you, so here it is:

I was once hired from the bathtub. Yes, you read that correctly, I was offered a really great job, while my new 'boss' was taking a soak. I knew this was the beginning of great things! I called her to discuss the job, and she said she was in the tub and did I mind? I didn't and we have a great conversation, and she ended up offering me the job. Last Christmas, I wanted to buy her a gift, and immediately thought of Eclipse Spa, as I'd liked the products I bought for Christmas the previous year. As I was filling out the gift card information to give to Anne, I realized it needed some explanation. I told her the story and we both had a good laugh.

So, do you have fun bathtub story? We'd love to hear about it. Send in your comments or email them.

Here's my bathtub story.

Mom (that's me): I'm gonna take a bath now, and relax for a while.

Hubs: Great, you deserve it.

Mom: OK, see you guys in an hour.

7-yo Daughter: Can I take a bath with you? Please? I wanna try the new Indie Beauty products too.

Mom: Honey, I know, but can mommy just have a bath by herself tonight? I really could use some Donna time, OK?

7-yo Daughter: Please? Mom, I'll give you a massage and do your nails for you. Oh please o please o please. Pleeeeez?

Mom: OK.

So that's my bathtub story. And as much as I try to resist, I never regret giving in. She's sweet and the times are precious and will pass too fast. I love being a mom.

I love your "bathtub story"!

I have a friend who will totally relate to this. She said she hasn't been able to take a bath alone in 8 years!
