Jab koi Bath bigad jaaye..

Al ol' friend Murphy once said, "If something can go wrong, it will."

Aeons later, P. Marshall Jr. (of
'The Law of Diminishing Intellectual Futility' fame) struck gold when she figured another bunch of life's bitter truths which she now proudly & collectively calls 'P. Marshall Jr.'s Laws'.

She will dispense these truths, from the 'Laws of Baths' series, now..

Laws of Baths:
  • If the telephone/ doorbell/ mobile phone must ring, it will ring about a minute and a half after you have lathered up
  • The (bath)room temperature of (bath)H2O will be dreadfully high during summer & shockingly low during winter, as much to your discontent as to mine
  • Shower gels/ body washes will smell pleasant for only about six days after you've opened the seal. They will never smell as pleasant on your skin as they seem to on the skimpily clad woman's skin in the splendidly wondrous advertisement on the television. [Exception to the rule: Soap bars, they hardly ever smell good anyway. Exception to the exception: Dove soap, it smells exceptionally good]
  • If the shower gel/ body wash/ soap bar can run out (cross reference with 'running out of toothpaste while brushing your teeth') during your bath, it definitely most certainly will
  • A bad (bigdaa hua) bath => lack of zest & inspiration => bad day. Ergo, a good bath is essential for the wellbeing of all mankind

Jab koi bath bigad jaaye, jab koi mushkil pad jaaye, please de dena towel mera, O humnawaab..

Cheers. Keedas. Peace.
