You know that scene where Michael Keaton fills the front-loading washing machine with too much laundry detergent? Philip drew me a bath the other day. The FRESH Saki bath remedy instructions were there, on the back of the glass bottle. There might have been something about trying to add the two capfuls of product to a bath "as hot as you can take it." Something about expelling toxins from the body. We know better. As a pregnant lady, you cannot let your body temperature rise too high. So he kept things tepid, but he used a cup instead of a capful. Then he turned on the Jacuzzi. "Now I know," he said. It was the first foam party I’d ever attended. At least I’ll be good and clean for the Texas Book Festival this weekend. It’s free. I’ll be reading from and discussing Straight Up and Dirty, among other things, from 3-4 on Sunday.
