My landlord definitely has a sense of humour. You may recall that I have difficulties with my hot water supply, and thus have become a somewhat irregular bather. (Sorry neighbours!) He and I have even had several discussions about the problem.
He recently arrived at my door beaming and bearing this (I’ve put my phone in the picture so you can get an idea of just how big this present is):
I liked the English on the box lid.
I thanked him profusely, and ripped the lid off the box the second he left my apartment. What on earth could he have given me? An electric blanket? A heated towel rack? A new water heater? A season’s pass to the spa downtown?
I was gob-smacked. I literally had to pick my jaw up off the floor. I complain that my shower is too cold to use so my landlord buys me 4 bars of soap; two bottles of body wash; 6 bottles of shampoo and conditioner; and enough toothpaste to last a lifetime.
I was a bit puzzled by the toothpaste though.
There is another mystery box.
Is it toothpaste? Soap? Cream of some sort? Is it made from the strange-looking fungi? Or is it flavoured by them? Or perhaps I’m meant to spread it on my mushrooms? Equally puzzling is the fact that it’s made by LG. Is it something electronic?
I can’t wait to try some of this stuff out once the weather warms up. Tomorrow the weather people are forecasting a high of -1C. BRRRRRRRR. Clearly my fabulous new toiletries will have to wait a little bit longer…
