Sarah: Medicine Cabinet Adventures

I've heard that an alarmingly large percentage (over 70%) of house guests will peek in your medicine cabinet while using your bathroom. Personally I had never taken a gander at my friends' medicine cabinets (with the exception of a few dates. I don't feel bad on dates, for some reason. It's... research. Does he use Rogaine? Does he have a vial of blood from an ex-girlfriend? Does he have a makeup compact that he may or may not use? These are things that a girl needs to know, and sometimes she has to do a little snooping. But I digress).

The point is that, with very few exceptions, I leave medicine cabinets be. I am curious, however, to know if the rest of you are secret medicine cabinet snoopers. Do you look? Would you be upset if someone looked in yours? Do you clean out your medicine cabinet before guests arrive, just in case?

I don't think I have anything too incriminating in my medicine cabinets. Yes, I could probably stand to clean out the bristles of my brush more often, and until the recent de-cluttering project, I had three separate hair products that could be used to achieve curly hair, but all in all, my medicine cabinet is pretty boring.

Do you have anything bizarre in your medicine cabinet? Better yet, do you plant anything (XL condoms? Chewing gum that you've labeled "toothbrush"? Anti-fungal foot cream [no judgement]?) for snooping guests to find?

Well I don't keep douches or latex recreations of penises(if you know what I mean) in there. Those are under the sink. (The least favorite bathroom area to snoop.) In fact there was a top ten favorite bathroom snooping areas. So I present it for your education.
1. Medicine Chest (of course)
2. Inside toilet tank(for rent money and treasure maps)
3. The left hand drawer by the sink
4. The right hand drawer by the sink
5. Sarah's make-up bag(What??)
6. Shower caddy
7. Under Rug
8. Cake decorating box
9. Shake out towels on rack
10. Under the sink

So you see. I'm not crazy.

Planting XL condoms . . . brilliant!

I wish I'd thought of that a long time ago, especially now that I know 70% of my house guests have peeked in my medicine cabinet and spotted my XS condoms. And that is precisely the kind of information I'd like to keep as private as possible.

That... is so unfortunate.

I've looked in your Medicine Cabinet. I got some toothpaste. Buuuut I am a medicine cabinet checker-outer...

I would not have guessed! Also, my toothpaste is above my medicine cabinet, so you totally get a pass.
