I try to remember

In our bathroom we have two bath towels hanging on the towel rack. Sometimes they are green towels. Sometimes they are white. And sometimes they are pinkish plum color. No matter what the color, the one on the left is mine and the one on the right is Lauren’s. There is the rare occasion that I forget that mine is the one on the left and I use the one on the right.

Lauren hates drying herself with a damp towel.

We had to go to the "you have your own bathroom and I have mine"... Neither of us can stand sharing a bathroom together!!

If you forget and use her towel, then try to sneak a fast one by and switch up the towels--there's nothing worse than getting out of a tub and having a wet towel!
Maybe you should put up a little sticky note of some kind on the wall or signs that say "His" and "Hers"--that way you will have no excuse (and you'll remember)

I'm with Lauren on the damp towel thing. And what I can't understand is how a man can forget which towel is his. Rob and I have our towels on the back of the door - top and bottom. I don't know how many times I've told him, "I'm on top! You will always be on the bottom." Wait, that sounds dirty. Never mind.

It's really not that hard, William.

My hubs, for some reason, dries his body with his towel, and then his hair with mine. WTH? Like his towel is that wet? Like he has that much hair to dry? Whatever?

We don't recycle towels in our house. One use and then washed in HOT water. Mainly because the hubby uses his to dry the inside of his ass. GROSS!

Shouldn't some things be allowed to air dry?

Umm...yuk. I hate when other people use my towel. Hands off! Of course, I may secretly use his towel to wipe the toothpaste off my mouth, so I don't get toothpaste on my towel.

i dont want anyone using my towel. but i'm with mainline mom-i use his towels to wipe the hair mousse off my hands or excess moisturizer or body lotion.
if he touches my towel? oh he's in trouble. i'll even put his towel on the floor to stand on when i get out of the shower sometimes. you know what he says? "i dont care....your feet are clean". blech!

he doesnt dry off anyways, he just walks around the bedroom for 10 minutes shakin his "lil buddy" at me singing "helicopter helicopter". he's not right.

Man some of these other comments are pretty funny! Tammy's really made me laugh....the inside?!?! GAH!

We have two different colored towels. He's off white, I'm dark brown. I haven't witnessed him drying the inside of his ass but if I do, then I think we should switch colors and he should use the dark brown towels. Of course, I'd have to throw away ALL the off white towels and start with fresh new ones.

This is how I help my husband remember (and I'm the one with dyslexia!) Lefty Lucy, if you use mine again, I'll knock your teeth Loosey, Righty Tighty, Stacie is ALWAYS RIGHT
This seems to have helped him some. Stacie (who always gets all the q's, p's,g's,b's, and d's in your word puzzle at the bottom!

Same bathroom, same shower, but TOTALLY different towel racks on totally different walls. He's just as phobic as I am. I was gonna say he uses his, and I use mine, but that sounds kinda.... well... *ahem* How 'bout them Colts?! Yep. Poor St. Louis....

No_Newz said...

Soooo funny! We have the same left right deal going. Passed the rule down to my kids too. Everything on the left belongs to the boy and everything on the right belongs to the girl. Our son is a lefty like me, so the left is ours, always. No exceptions. :)

Lauren said...

Umm... Bill, do you use my towel to dry the inside of your ass? That's it, I am never using either towel to wipe my mouth after tooth-brushing.
(gagging)

lawnwhisperer said...

There is an overwhelming distain for the drying of the ass, you know, we have to dry other things as well! This does not make you want to stop wiping your toothpaste?

Lauren said...

oh, it's all disgusting, but it's the drying of the INSIDE of the ass that's particularly disturbing... it's a crevice, and crevices are by nature more difficult to clean. yuck!

Kari said...

Ok...now that I'm done losing everything I had hoped to keep down from diner (Thanks to Lauren and Lawn boy)

Ian and i have one of those stackable towel rack thingy's above the toilet...do you know what I mean? Well, anyway, it can hold 16 clean, folded towels...plus there are more in the closet...a new/fresh towel is needed after every shower. It's a must, and you're not going to refold the damp towel and put it back...so it goes in the hamper.

Laundry? Yes, lots of it! But... at least neither one of us have to walk around all day with an ass crevise towel dryed face!

damnit, lauren needs a blog.

canadianicewolf said...

OMG! I had to break down and comment. My hubby loves this blog and I have to admit it's a must-read blog for me now too and this topic and thread of comments is just too hysterical!

I also agree with kimmyk - Lauren, you need your own blog!

I am a "use it once and wash it" kind of gal. He's a "use it until it won't soak up anymore water" kind of guy.

Whether he uses mine or not doesn't bug me. The fact that he doesn't use a different towel each time does.

I completely understand why - piles and piles of laundry, especially since he's the one normally doing the laundry...
