Ew! Ew, ew!

I’ve occasionally read other posts describing family members or friends in less than flattering terms. I never did that until today.

I have a brother-in-law who is developmentally challenged. Anyway, he’s a very nice fellow. He is also very sick. He lives with my niece but spends Saturday nights at our house and we all go to church on Sunday morning; then we have Sunday dinner. The only thing about him is, he believes everything is community use. This weekend, I discovered that meant personal hygiene items.

Last night, he comes in while I am doing some business writing and I’m really focused. He says hi, and so do I. Shortly afterwards, I hear sounds coming from the bathroom. I ask him if he’s okay, and he says, “yeah, I was just flossing. I forgot the floss at home.”
So he was using MY floss. Ew. Then I realized he had no mouthwash, and he was gargling! My mouthwash! Ew, ew! I KNOW he would have drank straight from the bottle!
Out they go in the trash.

I didn’t tell my wife, because she would have flipped. One time while I was gone on a trip, he had come over and my lotion had disappeared. Not the bottle, it was still there, but empty. I told her about it, and my wife said he knows better. So she told him about it, and he says he didn’t know anyone was using it. She gets mad, because he knew we had extras and he just had to ask.

This morning, we are about to leave for church. My wife got so mad, she said she wanted to cuss. My wife NEVER curses. Before church. I had no idea why she was so angry.

When we got home, she had a talk with him. I went upstairs. She took him home. When she got back, I asked her about it.

She said he told her he had used my toothpaste and my deodorant, and it was before I had woken up. Ew, ew, super yuck!!! She was furious; for some reason I thought it was hilarious…yet utterly revolting. I immediately went upstairs for a long hot shower…and then over to Wal-Mart for some personal items.


About bittersportspills

I love sports. I don't love the hype, homerism, ratings talk, self-important egomaniacs, bias or any of the other nonsense you get with the national media. Nor will you get the two clowns on sports talk radio who stage phony arguments. It doesn't make it entertaining. It makes it time to turn on your iPod and jam instead of listening to white noise generators. This is the sports blog for you, the ones who don't like everything Los Angeles or New York. Just because the sporting media is based there doesn't mean we have to like their teams. We do treat them fairly, though. That means if one of those cities has an average QB who plays particularly well...we'll note it. If they're garbage, we'll say so. Instead of crying "why, why, why" like a certain sports media homer did in his radio broadcast. This isn't my job...I have a real one. Nevertheless, I'll post here when I make an observation. Common sense in sports is nearly dead. Now we're attempting to bring it back.
