I say if you're gonna do a meme, you might as well go all the way and reveal more than anybody ever wanted to know about you.
And what could be more personal than your bathroom habits? Exactly.
So here is a list of choices we all make on what types of personal care products and habits we choose on a daily basis. Until I put this together, I never realized just how many choices there are. How lucky for you.
1. Conditioner y/n?
No, shampoo is good enough for me. With the lack of locks on my melon, I have neither the need nor the desire to "rinse and repeat".
2. Razor - manual, electric?
I'm not sure if my razor is manual, electric or some kind of hybrid, but I use the Gillette M3Power "vibrating" razor. My sister-in-law gave me one of these a few years back as a Christmas present and I've been a huge fan ever since. This razor shaves super close and just glides right over your face. But DAMN - these suckers are expensive!
3. Shaving cream - foam, gel?
Since I usually shave every day it doesn't take much to mow my lawn - but if I had to choose, I guess I would pick gel because it does seem to lubricate better than foam.
4. After shave - y/n, brand?
When I was much younger I used to use after shave, but more as a cologne than a moisturizer. But I don't have a problem with dry or chaffed skin so I'd rather not spend money on something extra I don't need.
5. Toothbrush - regular or electric?
Just a regular old-fashioned toothbrush kind of guy. Although I probably should take my dentist's advice and replace it more than once a year. According to him "the bristles should be standing up and firm and not all smushed down blah blah blah..." Whatever. What does he know anyway?
6. Toothpaste - regular or gel, whitening etc?
I don't have much of a preference here. But if I had to choose I suppose it would be a minty-flavored gel. We're using a citrus type of toothpaste right now and even though I'm sure it does the job, it doesn't make me feel minty fresh afterwards.
7. Floss - y/n, flavored, thick/thin, waxed?
Yes and no. I floss, but not consistently. But when I do it needs to be the really thin stuff since my back teeth are very close together. And if I break off a piece between my teeth I only have about 5 seconds before I go insane.
8. Mouthwash - y/n, brand?
No, I've never been a mouthwash kind of guy. And that disgusting commercial where that guy swooshes his hot spitty mouthwash around in his mouth for 10 minutes doesn't help much either.
9. Toilet paper - over or under?
We definitely an "over the top" kind of family. In more ways than one.
Yes, we have a lavatory library. But I hate it when the supply runs low and you have to keep reading the same magazines over and over again, to the point of where you eventually end up reading about the side effects of Celebrex.
11. Hair dryer or towel dry?
It depends. When I first get my hair cut, I just towel dry it briefly and comb it. But once it gets a bit longer I blow dry it to help poof it up. Ok, this is officially the point where I now know this meme was a bad idea.
12. Hair "products" - moose, gel, hairspray, etc?
Just a light spritz of hairspray is all I use to keep my
luscious remaining locks in place. And I prefer a non-aerosol pump.
13. Cologne or body spray - y/n, brand?
No. I stopped wearing cologne shortly after I met my wife and vowed my undying love for her forever. I'm not sure how that's related but I'm guessing it had to do with the fact that I wasn't on the prowl anymore so I didn't need to wear bait. On a related note however, if any of you have teenage boys, I hope for your sake they don't find out about Axe, or any of the other popular body sprays. My wife and I have had to intervene to let them know that they don't need to spray on a whole can at once when a half a can will get the job done just fine. Ugh.
14. Deodorant - Spray, roll-on, stick (gel or white), scented etc?
Mildly-scented (fresh) gel stick.
15. Sink and shower soap - liquid, bar, bodywash, etc?
Sink: Liquid hand soap.
Shower: Everything on the market, but like the story says - I prefer the bar.
16. Sink cup - disposable Dixie type, regular?
We don't actually have a cup in our bathroom because nobody in our family would even dream about using a "community" cup, and the Dixie cup thing is too much of a hassle to keep stocked - so we either go without or bring one in from the kitchen.
Whew! Way more information than you ever needed to know. And this is only the basic stuff. I didn't even want to attempt to add questions for women about makeup, lotions and *ahem* "feminine care" choices. I may be interested in your personal habits - but not THAT interested.
So feel free to steal this and share it on your own blog (and women can add whatever girlie crap they want). For some stupid reason I think it would be fun.
But I'm guessing Grundir would have a different opinion.
