a sanitary riot
On threading our rented trolley between the aisles of a supermarket, we acquired a bottle of bath oil.
As one does. \”Revive & Restore\”, the label advises. Very calming. Very restive. When one is prone, susceptible. It prompts the smoke detector to howl everytime we pour a bath. It triggers a bout of anxious scrabbling. The effect is less than therapeutic. Sandalwood, surely, is quite innocuous, a dash or two of an essential tear. The pepper spray is an alarming twist.
