Yoplait Yogurt

Maybe if Smart Woman will let Stupid Man poke around in the refrigerator unattended for a little while, he’ll figure out that she’s talking about yogurt.

She must have told him, because in this commercial, he’s in on it, but gets a little reprimand for the very misrepresentation made by Smart Woman previously.

Thank goodness Smart Mom knows how to solve this tricky problem!  It’s a wonder she leaves Dumb Dad at home without a sitter.

Stupid Man is so intent on an illicit relationship with a stranger he’ll flush almost anything down the toilet.

Desperate, depraved, and dumb! What a combination!

Homemade Soothing Oatmeal Bath

 I know I’m a little late coming to this party, but I just figured out I could make my own oatmeal “soothing bath treatment” for pennies on the dollar. 

My husband battles dry winter skin every year, and we recently discovered that Aveeno’s Soothing Bath Treatment provides tremendous relief from the itch.  But ouch!  Are those little packets ever expensive! (87 cents each) He checked the ingredients:  100% Colloidal Oatmeal.  We Googled “colloidal” and found out that this just means  the oatmeal has been ground into a fine powder, so as to stay dispersed in the water.  I immediately thought of my trusty kitchen appliances and figured we could surely make our own.

After reading a blog post on the subject, I was ready to give it a try.  I added 3 cups of store brand oats to my food processor and whirled them into a powder.  Next, I sifted the powder since I was hoping for extra-fine results, but I understand this step is optional.  That’s all there was to it.  The recommended test for fineness was to stir one tablespoon of powder into a glass of water and see whether it turns the liquid milky (good) or just sinks to the bottom (bad).  Hooray!  We passed the test!

But the real test came when my husband tried it for the first time.  He used the same amount that was in each Aveeno packet:  ½ cup.  It worked great, and he was really glad that he could use the treatment as often as he wanted without concern for the cost.
