People Are Snorting What?
People are crazy. Make that some people are crazy. Especially the people who buy bath salts and snort them to get high. According to this article in the Huffington Post, such lunatics do exist.
We have coke head, crack fiend, speed demon and meth addict. Do the people at Amazon.com think I am one of these?
I’ve made no secret of the fact that I love to take baths, and bath salts are one of the most exquisite creations known to this woman. I never, ever allow myself to run out of them. It would be a tragedy. What is a good bath, after all, without relaxing additions to the water?
When I saw that my favorite go-to cheap version – “Queen Helene BaTherapy” – was available in tubs as big as my whole head on Amazon.com, I ordered two of the things. The UPS man had a hard time picking up the box and hoisting it over the porch railing, something that made me very glad that I bought enough to qualify for free super-saver shipping.
I screwed the top off the container and – SHAZAM! – the contents of the lavender version look exactly like……….cocaine.
Oh my stars! Is this what the crazies are snorting up their noses for a bad trip? Does everyone at Amazon.com think I am now one of the crazies because I ordered enough of this stuff in one box to bathe everyone in my town simultaneously?
While I’m obsessing about it, at the same time, I’m terrified that a few stupid people will take away my right to bathe with the accompaniment of salty, scented water. There’s already talk about outlawing the sale of bath salts, meaning that I will have to resort to illegal means of purchase if I want to continue to enjoy my own perfectly legal rituals. I can just see it now. Me, arrested at the end of some dark city street simply because I want to take a bath with additives.
This whole saga is making me so stressed out that I’m having panic attacks. For the time being, anyway, I have just the cure.
I’ll go take a bath with Queen Helene.
