Let the bath-time battle begin!
Millions of children around the world take baths every day. Many of them don’t want to at first … but once they get into their Australian bogey hole, Colombian mud volcano, or Nepalese hot spring, they don’t want to get out!
I wasn’t surprised to learn that any kid, no matter where they’re from, doesn’t want to take a bath but also don’t want to get out. It’s just a fact of life.
Besides learning about bathing habits from different countries, you also learn how to say ‘yes’ and ‘no’ in several different languages.
Personally, I prefer a shower to a bath. Unless it’s a bath in one of those tubs with the jacuzzi jets. If you use just the right amount of bubble bath soap you get a thick layer of bubbles that keeps the heat from escaping. It’s no fun to sit in a bath without bubbles, you’re basically just sitting in a pool of your own filth.
And as a bonus, here is one of my favorite Calvin & Hobbes comics where Calvin complains about taking a bath.
