Sugar Scrub & Bees

Through a long and convoluted train of thought (as the best ones always are), Jerome and I got on the subject of sugar scrubs and bees again last night. Of course, I don't think I've ever explained the theory of sugar scrubs and bees, at least the way it works in Jerome's mind.

See, Jerome thinks that it's a horrible idea to scrub yourself with sugar, because he is convinced that if you do, the bees will get you. I try to tell him that this theory is invalid, because you would wash all of the sugar off of you before the bees would get a chance to get to you (I'm pretty sure bees won't attack you in the shower, because they don't like water much). He still persists that the bees will get you if you use sugar scrub.

I told him that one of these days, I'm just going to take the risk and buy some sugar scrub. He tells me that he doesn't want the bees to get me. I don't think I can win this one. :)

So yes, the only appropriate End of the Work Week Wisdom is one that I may have used before, but I don't care! :p

Enough said. :)

Heh... somehow the fact that many women are clearly using sugar scrub without getting stung (otherwise they would have stopped using it by now) escapes him.

And hey, I've never been stung by anything except as a result of my own clumsiness. I literally have put my hand on a wasp and walked into a bee (put my leg against a picnic bench that it was sitting on). No wonder they stung me!
