While chatting with my girlfriend yesterday, I could tell that something was up. She sounded peevish and not her usual balanced self, so I gently asked her to spill it.
“I’m just so frustrated! I don’t think there really are 30 on-the-go-wipettes in those SweetSpot packs, do you?” To this I replied my usual, “Um, what do you mean?”
“Well,” she sighed, “They don’t seem to last me very long.”
“Are you doubling up?” I inquired. “Of course not.” Was her quick reply.
Just then, a thought occurred to me and I started to giggle, “Maybe Josh is using them too?” There was a pause and then a slightly disgusted, “What?”
“You can’t seriously think we’re the only ones who like to freshen up in the bathroom–I mean, come on, really?” Now I paused for a moment, then added, “Look, if I don’t have a pack of wipettes in the bathroom, I get the ‘Where are those bathroom wipe thingys again?’ and then I realize I’m slacking on my supply job.”
“So you think Josh is swiping my wipettes? Why didn’t he say something?” The astonishment in her voice made me laugh out loud.
“Well, you know, some guys don’t want to talk about it. They just want to use a wipette and be done with it.”
Then we both started to laugh and, after she mentioned something about having to double her order now, we moved onto other things.
The moral of this story? Don’t think intimate grooming is just for women–men like it too–so you better double up to accommodate your potential wipette swiper!
