N...is for...NEVER put too much bubble bath into a jet tub!


So, I am full of some GREAT advice today. Listen to my words very closely. Take this as a very valuable lesson. When going away for a fabulous weekend with your hubby and friends...DO take the room with the cool jet tub in the corner of the room. Look forward to enjoying the lovely homemade soaps and bath bombs that the nice hotel people leave on the side of the tub. Do talk all day about how much you will enjoy that bath later, while sipping a glass of wine and watching late night re-runs of I Love Lucy. Do all of that...

But NEVER...I repeat, NEVER...put in that tiny little extra squirt of bubble bath thinking that tub is sooo big that you will need extra bubbles to cover your not so tiny, adult sized body.

And whatever you do...NEVER turn on the the jets when you have that teensy, weensy, tiny too much squirt of extra bubbles in that jet tub. Trust me...this turns into an automatic bubble making machine! One that you will frantically beat with the first towel you can find, in hopes of breaking down the rapidly building wall of bubbles. When that doesn't work, you will blow and push the bubbles to the back of the wall, hoping they won't cascade onto the floor. Especially when you do not know how to shut the jets off. You might have to call your friends from next door for help. And when they don't come, thinking you are playing another joke on them, then you might have to go to the funny hotel lady and ask for help.
Then when you come back into the room, with the funny hotel lady who is laughing at your unbelievable story about a bubble explosion...you might find your loyal, helpful friend sitting on your bed laughing while taking pictures of your little teensy, weensy, tiny squirt of bubbles in your jet tub.

By this time, your friendly hotel lady will shut the jets off, with the ease of one finger, gently pushing on the jet button. All friends and friendly hotel lady will laugh at your expense. Your husband will worry that after all the embarrasment, you will be mad at him, for he is the one who turned on the jets for you so you could relax with that glass of wine while watching late night re-runs of I Love Lucy. Soon you will realize that your nervous system is starting to relax, and the sweat on your body is starting to dry.
What else can you do...but shamelessly get into that volcanic wall of bubbles?!
Unfortunaltely, you will soon realize that in your frantic effort to stop the bubbles you turned the water off, and there is only about 4 inches of water in your bath. For fear of igniting another explosion of bubbles...you will turn on the tap VERY slowly, and realize that you cannot enjoy a hot bath of only bubbles. One needs water to relax. But, it takes a LONG time to get rid of that many bubbles.

So, you will very quickly get out of your bath. Go to bed and hope for a better bath tomorrow.
Lesson learned...NEVER turn on the jets after putting in just a teensy, weensy, tiny extra amount of bubble bath into that great big tub.


With that, this is alphe-bet thursday...head on over to Jenny's place and see who else is having fun with N words today. http://www.jennymatlock.blogspot.com/

This was good!......loved it because I did this years ago in one of the fantasy suites at the West Edmonton Mall hotel. I'd never been in a jet tub (what can I say - I was spa-deprived)and squirted in the gel and then hit the jets. BOOM - the bubbles hit the ceiling. For weeks I lived in terror of a call from the hotel demanding restitution. Nice to know I'm not the only one to do this!

I'm glad you survived the great bubble onslaught, Phew!

Jenny said...

Oh Jimi! What a fun post!

Our house has a giant whirlpool in our bathroom and I did the exact same thing.

I was filling the tub and came back to a literal mountain of bubbles.

Thanks for this nifty post on our little journey through Alphabe-Thursday's Letter "N".

Make sure you put a deeper tub in the new house!

A+

Jimi, I have done this...but it was in a hot tub on the top of a houseboat...it took a while for the bubbles to go away. I will remember this post when we go on our honeymoon this summer...don't use the extra squirt of bubbles ;)

this made me laugh for quite sometime.

Christy said...

so funny! i don't think i have ever seen a tub right there smack in the room--next to the bed--interesting

Melinda Cornish said...

I have done this before,,,but I never use just a little bubble bath...my bad, bubbles were clear to the front door....live and learn.

Christy said...

hahahaha, I sure hope you got your relaxing bath the next day!
