in a package from home, my mother was kind enough to send me some jergens tan-building lotion for albinos. with the lotion was another smaller tube. i assumed it was for my face. no. it was the same lotion. in a travel size. jergens thought it would be a good idea to give their natural glow daily moisturizer away as a gift in a sample size.
i’m really sorry, jergens. it isn’t that i’m ungrateful. i’m not. but seriously? why the fuck would you think i would want a sample size of fake tan?
at what point would it be necessary or appropriate to apply a sample size of said product? o, for convenient air travel? because it is so fucking important to work on my mile high tan?
i seriously can’t even understand. why the fuck didn’t they just put it in the same bottle and make the bottle bigger? why are there two containers of the same thing?! what a waste of plastic.
robbie is here. it is nice to have a little traveling (bearded) piece of america. funny enough, when we said goodbye back in cincy, we weren’t even sad because we were certain we’d see each other again before anyone else. lo and behold, it happened. meeting him at the subway station today was as normal as anything. it helps me appreciate korea more when i have someone to show it to. (this makes me wish i had done a few things differently during peter’s visit in april; however, i have to believe that we are always living in a state of grace and that the right thing happened because it’s the thing that happened.)
also. i really like that in korea there are zippers on the backs (or sides) of shoes for convenience. if people know anything about me, it’s that i like to make a quick change and a quicker escape.
