I am not really crying. I am singing an old Jerome Kern song. My feelings get very hurt when the neighbours think I am crying. So I smile and say 'soap gets in my eyes'

CRYING

 

They ask me how Iíve known,

Where my towel had flown.

They hear my painful cries, and me they do despise ,

When soap gets in my eyes.

The bath is not the place they say, to wash my graying hair,

Whatever they say I go in all the way and as long as I can,  I stay there.

Now, when Iím dry, youíll never hear me cry,

For  Iím without a care.

 

So I smile and say, this old lady cries

When soap gets in her eyes.

Oh heck it stings, no doubt about that...These days I use a natural shampoo and conditoner, and a sorbolene soap, it's less stressful.
Thanks for the sharing.
Love Ch'erie

I jump around when soap gets into my eyes; I even scream and yell, I don't think I ever cried tho. LOL!
Thanks for sharing.

Really interesting write. I shower and pretend I am in the bath and also pretend my hair is not graying...so I am close to crying even without soap in my eyes. Well done.

Awwwww! This is so cute and yes when soap gets in the eyes it burns and makes us cry. Not so with Johnson's baby shampoo though, wish they made an adult version. Nope, wash my hair in the kitchen sink, easier to control the soap, water and keep those towels closer. Only becomes a problem when my kitties want to play with my hair when I am trying to wash it.........

Be safe,
Karen

Joyce,

Whilst running my bathwater, I wash my hair and rinse in the flowing water from the faucet. :) SHUT YER EYES and the soap won't get in. I hope. :) An adorable write.

'Course, like Stan Grimes said, be glad you have hair. :) Just got mine cut yesterday, so don't need as much shampoo......LOL Less likely to get soap in me eyes.

(((HUGS))) and love, Karla.
