This is a perfect example of a day that sounds good in theory but bites upon closer inspection. Absolutely, there is something unapologetically indulgent about drawing a divine bath of piping hot water and fragrant bubbles, pouring a glass of personal elixir, and savoring the experience.
And while we are all for enjoying a good book as well, water and paper should be mixed only if you are trying to make a nice paste. All the towels and washcloths, all the plastic baggies in the world cannot save a book from water damage.
True, many love to read in the tub, citing that it just takes practice to do so without ruining the reading material. That may be, but erring on the side of caution, and insuring my Kindle lives to work another day, I’ll celebrate today by choosing to read bath appropriate material: the back of the shampoo bottle.
