TBWCYL Day 186 - Cleaner than ever before

So, yesterday we got up at the butt crack of dawn aka 4 a.m. to get ready for our trip to the Napa Valley. The task to perform however was one that could be done at the butt crack of dawn and kind of involved my butt crack. You see, I was to clean myself to make me as clean as the day I was born.

What a challenge. I took this one full on though. I grabbed a course wash cloth and got in the shower and after washing my hair and subsequently my shoulders, thank you Head and Shoulders, I got my body wash ingrained into my washcloth and went to town.

Do you know how much it hurts when you clean quite vigorously behind your ears? How about when you scrub the area where your nostrils and your nose meet? Anyone? That shit hurts!!!

I also washed my back. Now, I know what you are thinking. "Newt doesn't wash his back?" The answer simply is "No". I stand in the shower and let my shampoo run down my back, let the shower head continuously spray it, and I wash my shoulders, lower back area, and my bootie. I don't, however, religiously wash my back or face. They get good rinses and soap comes in contact. But yesterday I got that washcloth and cleared ever bit of dead skin, grime, grit and Cheerio that I could.

My final act of cleanliness was to take one of those sticks with the gritty side and the smooth side, you know the ones for your feet, and clear off all the dead skin from the bottoms of my feet. I do this occasionally but yesterday my toes, heel and instep looked bright pink and new.

I felt like I got detailed yesterday.

That is all,

Did washing behind the back of your ears remind you of Granny Nan?

Yes indeed it did. I couldn't remember but I think I posted on that and was going to link it but since we are out of town, I didn't have time to find it.

Why do they say "Clean as the day you were born"? Have you seen what a baby comes out covered in?
