Last night, while lying in bed, Mr F was waxing poetically about his new shampooing technique.
Mr F - "Kid's hair looks gorgeous tonight"
Mr F went on for sometime about how far he put the shampoo and where he applied the conditioner. Mrs F was mostly rolling her eyes. How to handle Kid's knots can be a point of contention between the two of them. Mr F has a tendency to forget that Mrs F has been washing long hair successfully for several decades.
Mr F - "I used that new foaming shampoo"
Mrs F - rolls over and gives Mr F the "what?!" face.
Mr F - "The one that squeezes out of the bottom."
Mrs F - processes this information with a concerned look.
Mr F- face freezes in a look of panic.
Mrs F - "The dog shampoo?!!"
Mr F - panic turns to hysterical laughing.
Mrs F - "You just used that on the dog... like 2 weeks ago."
Mr & Mrs F - more hysterical laughing.
Mr F - "I thought I remembered using it."
Mrs F - "You know what is funny? When the kids came in after their bath, I actually said 'Your hair smells fantastic!'"
Mr & Mrs F - hysterical laughing.
Mrs F - "Well, it is organic. I'm sure it's okay."
Mrs F - gets up to go to the bathroom. checks the shampoo label.
Mrs F - "I don't think it will be a problem. But, it is "Whitening Shampoo", you know, for white coats."
Mr F - crying with laughter
Mr F - "I saw that"
Mrs F - "Well, what did you think that meant?!"
Mr F - "I was like 'What the Fuck?!'"
Mrs F - "But it says "For White Coats' what did you think that meant?"
Mr & Mrs F - both crying
Mr F - "Does it really say that?"
Mrs F - "Yes"
Mr F and Mrs F finally start to calm down.
Mr F - "You know, the problem is that it doesn't look like dog shampoo, it looks like kids shampoo."
Mrs F - "Well, it doesn't have a picture of a dog on it.... but... it is called Paw-ganics"
Mr F - gets up and goes to the bathroom to read the bottle. Uproarious laughter echos off the walls.
Mr & Mrs F - cry themselves to sleep.
I told Kid this morning. "Did he really?!" Kid asks laughing. "He actually said 'This shampoo works great, I'm going to use it over and over again!'"
