Natural Folks

You know, the internet is an amazing thing!  I mean, who ever dreamed that we would be able to reach another person on the other side of the world with just a click of a button?  Snail mail taking a back seat to email, you can send pictures of family and friends, or meet some new pals that you have some things in common with...

Speaking of common interests, I remember when the computer was still rather new to me.  I enjoyed surfing around, and I found the wonderful world of groups!  Groups where you can find others who can give and take advice on any and every subject.  Although I cannot remember the name of the group, I thought I would check out a group that appeared to have organic ideas.  Hey, all of us can stand to eat healthier, right?  So I clicked and joined!  I was ready to read some of the other posters' ideas!  I could learn a thing or two, and be on my way to a new way of life!

Well, I did learn a thing or two rather quickly...

I read a post by a woman who no longer used shampoo for cleaning her hair.  I don't remember if she only used water or vinegar, but no more of those chemicals for her!  Not only did I read about chemical free hair, but also about chemical free bodies!  Being interpreted, that means NO DEODORANTS!  She added in her post that her husband didn't mind the smell!

This little girl right here learned all she wanted to learn, and quickly left the group!  

NO THANK YOU!!!  Give me Aussie in the purple bottle!!!  Give me Dove!!!  Give me Bath and Body Works!!!  And then douse me with Vanilla Musk or Chanel!!!  

It is probably a good thing I didn't read more than what I did....had I found folks that were against toothpaste and laundry soap, I think I may have crawled under the desk and hid, because surely I would have felt like I just stepped into the Twilight Zone!

By the way, does anybody have a mint?

Oops -- the previous comment was for the redneck story!
Now for this story -- if that's "natural", I must not be natural. I agree -- give me deodorant, my Dove, and anything else that will eliminate the "natural" odor!!

This is a wonderful thing you are doing. I enjoy the stories please keep them coming. I love the "Redneck Dan The Mowing Man". A far cry from the Dan the Chicken Man, from way back when. This made my day when I read it.
