OK, here's my quirky little neurosis: I will not--repeat, will not
--take a bath anywhere but in my own tub, and only when I personally have cleaned it. A shower, yes, but to actually SIT DOWN in some one else's tub when I don't know when it was last cleaned or who cleaned it? EEEEEEEEWWWWWWWWW!!!
uke: I won't even use a hotel tub, and even at home, I'd rather sit in dirt than my sons' bathtub (which at best is grungy, and at worst, unspeakable :uhoh21: ).
I've never been able to figure out just when this started.......I don't recall any traumatic bathing incident from childhood, but it's been this way as long as I can remember. When I was a teenager spending a night or a weekend at my friends' houses I'd always shower, but if they only had a tub, I would stand up in it and do a 'spit bath' with a washcloth and a bar of soap.......NO WAY was I gonna plant my bare butt in there.
It's the only thing I'm really kind of OCD'ish about, but there it is........and yes, you can laugh!!!
