    A couple of items actually made me laugh out loud today! The moment between 41 and 42 was hilarious. It was blessedly childlike! And I asked myself the exact same question (#45) yesterday morning, but instead I decided I needed to go buy more soaps because everything in my bathroom is so pedestrian!! love you!
