As I have stated before, I do not totally understand the concept of a bath. If you are taking a bath because you want to get clean, it makes no sense to me at all. Whatever dirt you have accumulated during the day you transfer to the water as soon as you sit down in the tub. Hence, when you are done, and rise up to get out of the bath, you will carry a certain amount of that dirt back on you. Just look at the ring around your tub when the water drains out to prove my point.
I do understand the idea of the bath for infants. First off, they either can’t stand yet or they can’t stand for very long. And I suppose even as they get older they like to play in the water. I guess this is what we call good clean fun!
I even understand it for animals, who are probably having to be restrained while they are bathed. I have never met one that will take a shower on their own. And naturally if you get in there with them you may need a bath to sooth those muscles you have strained.
I even understand the relaxation felt when sitting in a hot tub of water. Athletes use it to relax and help massage those bruised bones and pulled muscles. Adding a little aromatic therapy can be a really good idea as well. However, if the purpose is to get clean then you will need a shower afterwards, before or both! The bubbles do help, I’m not exactly sure why, but they do.
Now when you add a little champagne, candles and some bubbles to your bath I begin to get an entirely different picture. Add a few chocolates, some romantic music and two people, already clean from taking a shower, the idea changes completely! The peek-a-boo effect is fun and I suppose it could still be categorized as having a little clean fun!
How to celebrate – Make your own good reason for a bubble bath. Try taking a bubble shower! Plan a massive bubble bath with the entire family, including the animals, dressed appropriately of course.
