FRIVOLOUS DIMENSIONS OF MODERN LIFE
Bathrooms collect fads. Hundreds of things end up on shelves or in cabinets. They fill the corners and line the tub. Some of them make for interesting reading, when one has time to browse. Recently I was visiting in a home on a trip, and was in the bathroom. My eyes roamed to a plain plastic bottle which drew no attention to itself. The white label with simple black print read: “Strawberry Bubbling Milk Bath.” On the bottom of the same label in bold face black was: “NO FRILLS” How I cackled to myself at the utter, total incongruity. No way strawberry bubbling milk bath could be “no frill.” It seemed at that moment pure frill. Nothing more than catchpenny. Another way to snag an unsuspecting dollar. What a commentary! On life, on aspirations, on self deception. Sam Wilson Marc Newsletter from World Vision, Inc., Jul, 1984
