I Still Want Me some Crazy Foam
Back in my childhood days, a quirky mishap occurred – our shower decided to go on strike. It left us with no choice but to rely on the good old bathtub for our daily cleansing rituals. Now, while baths are undoubtedly relaxing, they can also be rather time-consuming, leaving one with ample moments for contemplation. So, what occupied my young, imaginative mind during these bath-time escapades? Well, none other than Crazy Foam!
You see, there I was, soaking in the tub, thinking of all the fun I could be having with Crazy Foam, while I reluctantly lathered myself up with mundane Ivory Soap. It was an agony of choice. Crazy Foam was available at all the major retailers in our area, practically begging for a spot in our bathroom. Naturally, I resorted to a classic strategy: begging, pleading, and even threatening to boycott bathing altogether. But alas, my efforts were in vain. My family remained resolute in their commitment to conventional soap.
Time marched on, and the shower was eventually repaired, setting our bathroom back to its regular routine. Life moved forward, but a tiny part of me stayed fixated on the allure of Crazy Foam. Every time I reach for a bar of soap, a small piece of my soul still sighs, reminiscing about the foam-filled dreams that never quite became a reality. The desire for that whimsical can of Crazy Foam still lingers, a testament to the enduring allure of childhood fantasies.
