Sarah: Douche

Dad, I'm not sure this entry is for you. You've been warned.

A few months ago, Dave and Angie sent me this video from the 1980s. They didn't prepare me for what was ahead, so neither will I:

"Mom, do you douche?" "I sure do." So disturbing. I need to call my mom and thank her for never having this conversation with me.

What I did not expect was to find that this type of advertising, the mother-daughter heart-to-hearts about douching went back to the 1940s:

While it is nice to live without the old bugaboos, your doctor or inappropriately open friend should be one to tell you about the womanly offense graver than bad breath or body odor.

Then Dave and Angie found this treasure:

Sorry, lady, that your husband avoids you because of your pungent hoo-ha. Note to self: don't ever lose the precious air of romance, if you know what I'm saying.

I've watched that video several times now, and you know what? It NEVER stops being hilarious. Never.

It think it's the daughter's casual inflection: "D'ya douche?"
Like, the question could have been, "D'ya wanna race me to those rocks?"

I'm just going to come out and say that I don't think you should douche with Lysol.

Ha!! I think Dave sent me that video several months ago. And it was, indeed, hilarious. ... I was going to make it weird, but decided against it in such a public forum.

E, I demand that you make it weird.
