Obsessive Nostalgia Disorder Monday: The Ghost of Bath Toys Past
The girls found this little toy at my grandma's. "Aww, Mom, it's so cute!" "Oh, yeah! That came with one of my Sea Wees." "Your what?" "A Sea Wee. A little mermaid bath toy."
Wide eyes. Much jumping up and down.
"I don't have any of the Sea Wees, girls. They were thrown away."
Shocked faces. "Why???????"
"Um, they were gross. They had black mildew caked on their scalps under their hair. It wouldn't clean off. I threw them away."
What can I say? Mildew grossed me out. I didn't even know that was what it was called. All I knew was that my Sea Wees developed a cake of black under their hair that kept getting worse and worse...
But until the day I threw them out, Sea Wees reigned supreme in the bath tub.
