I’d like to think I’m pretty easy to please. Granted, I have my moments and my private rants, but in general, I’m happy with little things:
A glass of Coke with lots of ice and a straw.
Receiving a funny card in the mail.
A husband who helps me put away the clean laundry [HATE that job!]
Splurging on dessert at my favorite restaurant.
Seeing lots of comments posted to a blog [*cough*]
So, you can imagine my glee when I discovered that this delightful casino we’re staying at [see yesterday’s post] outfits the bathrooms with Bath & Body Works products! Not some Dial knock-off or an oatmeal-based beauty bar, but the real thing. From the mall–only smaller. AND, it’s Coconut Lime Verbana! What fantastic news! I also scored a couple bars of Warm Vanilla Sugar, but since it’s not my favorite, I’m opening them up to the highest bidder [see below for my giveaway]. Free shampoo, conditioner, bath bar, “moisturizing bar”, and shower accoutrements. Like I said, it’s the simple things that blow my hair back.
Now. Let’s contrast this simple pleasure with another kind that I haven’t run into before. At least not in a hotel: “Sharps”. I saw this sign right away on the table when we walked in. Lovely of them to promote safety and cleanliness–I’m just sayin’– I haven’t seen this before. It reminds me of that scene in Field of Dreams when Kevin Costner and James Earl Jones are staying in the hotel looking for Moonlight Graham, and the man at the front desk has to remind them that they don’t allow “midnight abortions” at their establishment. Good to know.
Anyway, my small-town naivety is being enlightened, I suppose, by all these experiences. I’m enjoying some time away from the phone ringing and the doorbell dinging.
Enjoying the Simple and the Sharp here at the casino.
