Perceptive-LESS

I've never claimed to be a perceptive person. I pretty much have to be told things flat out before I actually get them. Quality example: (disclaimer-I know this is so gross and if I lose some friendships over it, I'll understand) It was my freshman year at BYU and I was roommate's with long-time friend Emily Maycock. About 8 months into school she finally decided that she needed to confront me with some "issues". Without going into detail, she had noticed that I hadn't been brushing my teeth before bed and that I hadn't changed my sheets yet. She couldn't take the nastiness anymore! I had no idea that I was doing anything out of the ordinary. It honestly never crossed my mind to do those things. Now, I know that my mom probably brushed her teeth and I know I must have washed my sheets when she told me to (I started doing my own laundry when I was 10 or so). However, she must not have ever told me when to do these things when I was all on my own. I'm really working on changing my ways!!! So...yesterday I decided I needed to wash the fabric on my car seats. Claire mentioned that she bleaches the metal fixtures on her's whenever she washes the fabric. Hmmm...I've never thought of that. So I decided that it was definitely time to give them a bleach bath. Here are the results (please don't report me to Child Services): GROSS!!!!!!!!!! The moral of the story is to protect your wee ones by santizing their seats.

DISGUSTING!!!!!!!! Emily, you are a foul creature who needs to be learned in the ways of hygiene! :)And you should add that you still don't brush your teeth at night. Let's not pretend you've changed that. You have so many redeeming qualities tho.....so it's ok. We like you.

2nd, that is disgusting, but honestly, I've never thought of it either!! So, don't feel too bad. :)

lol- Claire...you are such a freaking brat. I can't wait to see you guys.
Emily-you need help. But I will admit that I am REALLY bad about cleaning the car seat. Claire would puke if she saw mine.

That's disgusting. I have never and probably will never do that, though.

Emily Jewkes Hutchings --- You crack me up. As a side not, my dad doesn't brush his teeth at night either. You're not the only one -- ok, you WERE not the only one ten years ago. One of my favorite memories of you and Emmy freshman year is the stuff you did off the "ways to make your roommate think you are crazy list." I still have memories of you randomly "surfing" on your bed during a conversation between us four roommies.
