Leeuwenhoek had stolen and peeped into the fantastic sub-visible world of little things, creatures that had lived, had bred, had battled, had died, completely hidden from and unknown to all men from the beginning of time. Beasts these were of a kind that ravaged and annihilated whole races of men ten million times larger than they were themselves. Beings these were, more terrible than fire-spitting dragons or hydra-headed monsters. They were silent assassins that murdered babies in warm cradles and kings in sheltered places. It was this invisible, insignificant, but implacable-and sometimes friendly- world Leeuwenhoek had looked into for the first time of all men of all countries. ~Microbe Hunters

Valentine's Day - Take Numero Deux

Pretty sure the title of this post is in 3 different languages - English, Spanish and French. Just mixin' it up...

So I found 5 bottles of The Body Shop body wash in my parents' basement this afternoon. I discovered they are very VERY old after reading the label- tomato flavour/scent/infused. They must be from pre-historic times when my mother would have thought smelling like a tomato was delightful and a good way to get soft, smooth skin.

Anyways, since there are 5 (and I don't want them), and they are red, I decided they are going to be my late Valentine's Day gifts to my housemates. I made Valentine's Day cards as following:

Krystina:
Glad I have you to make bad decisions with. This body wash is a very bad decision. Enjoy!
Krista (fellow med labber):
Serum is red / Citrate is blue / Medlab is sweet / So are you (well, probably not, tomatoes are not a 'sweet' fruit)
Nicole (also a fellow med labber):
Serum is red / Citrate is blue / This body wash isn't so sweet / But neither are you.
Amelia:
All vegetables taste like fruit (refer to the new V8 commercial). These vegetables didn't have a chance before being turned into strange smelling body wash!
Jillian:
What better way to say you're awesome but to give you your least favorite food ground up to spread all over you! Enjoy your creamed cooked tomato seeds!


Darn good and sure of it,
