Just a few things before I leave for my t-shirt shopping extravaganza (I'm looking for the perfect, new shirt for my race this weekend)...
Last night, Jared admitted to me that the term "swass" is as much of a Lawson original as the cinnamon raisin bagel. Turns out, he didn't make it up--he got it from his crazy-ass, red-headed friend Lehi. I feel really, really let down by this turn of events because the first time Jared used the word "swass" my face lit up, I gave him an enormous hug, and I was like, "Oh my gosh! You thought of something funny! BY YOURSELF!" No wonder he claimed it as his own.
Also, I'd like to point out that shower heads serve one purpose only--showering. Last night, as I was rinsing off, Jared walked into the bathroom and we started to chat. This is how it went...
Amy: Do you ever like to power wash your teeth in the shower?
Jared: What do you mean?
A: Like this.
I clenched my teeth together and opened my lips as wide as I could. Then, I balanced on my tippy-toes, and positioned my teeth about one quarter of an inch away from the shower head.
A: See, if you hold your teeth that close you get a lot of water pressure. It knocks all the gunk off and makes your teeth extra smooth and silky. You should try it.
J: Amy, that's not power washing your teeth, that putting your mouth on the shower head.
That's when I started to get defensive.
A: NO IT'S NOT!!!! THIS is putting your mouth on the shower head!
And then I put my mouth completely around the shower head.
While the shower was running.
And then I almost died.
Trust me guys, I will never complain about lousy water pressure, ever again. Water pressure, I've learned, is a relative term.
