I’m sure you’ve all noticed how much I love using the word FABULOUS.
But not just fabulous as in fabulous.
No, it has to be faaaaaaaaaaaabulous, or it just doesn’t cut it.
There is something about adding all those A's that give the word more emphasis and drama.
I don’t know how or when I started using fabulous, but I can’t stop saying it.
Even if I hate something (like brussel sprouts) I say, "I hate them faaaaaaaabulously!"
And it’s funny because whenever I type it out in an email, a blog post, or the comment section of either my blog or someone else’s, I can actually hear myself saying it out loud in my head.
The other day while I was in the grocery store, I walked down the household cleaner aisle to grab some dish washing sponges, and out of the corner of my eye I saw something that made me stop dead in my tracks. It was a product I had never seen before.
And I think it was DESTINY that I found it.
Okay, I mean how appropriate is this item for me?
FABULOSO – with long-lasting fragrance.
Could you just DIE?
Well, as you can imagine, I grabbed it off the shelf and began reading the front and back labels; trying to find out what this cleaning product was for. Basically, it was for cleaning ANYTHING: counter tops, bathrooms, walls, floors, even fabrics!
This product is multipurpose (I even used a Q-tip and tried cleaning my ears with it).
However, it didn’t say anything about using it on hardwood floors (which I have in my apartment), but I thought that if it was gentle enough for fabrics, it couldn’t be harmful to wood flooring, right?
It came in three scents: Lavender, Passion of Fruits, and Ocean Paradise.
So of course, I had to open each one to see what they smelled like.
Notice in this next photo how I circled “Child-Safety Cap.”
HA! Child-Safety cap? They weren’t kidding because not only could a child NOT open the cap, but neither could a sumo wrestler holding a stick of dynamite in one hand and a hand grenade in the other.
OMG…it took me SEVEN hours to get it open. I was half tempted to just take my grocery cart and run over it a few times, just to get the friggin-ass cap off.
Well, I finally did manage to open it, and decided that the lavender scent was the one I was going to purchase because I adore the aroma of lavender.
After I got home, I went on a cleaning frenzy and began wiping down everything and anything in my apartment; from top to bottom. I felt like Joan Crawford in Mommie Dearest during one of her vodka and tonic mid-night cleaning raids.
"Christina...BRING ME THE AXE!"
And I gotta tell ya folks, I LOVE this stuff! It not only cleaned everything thoroughly (including my hardwood floor), but it made my apartment smell like a lavender field in Kent, England.
I have only one word to express how I feel about this cleaning product.
So, if you start to notice me saying fabuloso in my comments rather than fabulous, you’ll know why.
And don't be surprised if you even smell a touch of lavender.
Have a faaaaaaaaabuloso weekend everyone!
