Wow that took over an hour to do LOL I am exhausted!! Before I go I'll leave you with a conversation with my mother this past weekend after I had taken a shower at thier house

Mom: Did you have any suds in the shower?

Me: What?

Mom: Suds, you know like lather? Did the soap suds up?

Me: uh..Yeah "standing there with a stupid look"

Mom : Well, I can get anything to make suds anymore. They have done something to our water.

ME still standing there looking stupid with no response.

Now I dont know what the heck she meant. I dont know who "they" are and I wasnt going to ask. But I did have suds and lather in the shower. I dony know if this is an example of her paranioa or whether there is a real water problem.

Hey...maybe she meant that the water is 'hard' now, and that's why she can't make any suds?

Sometimes if the water changes, it'll affect the soap.

(I'm going out on a limb here, but I think that's what's going on!)
