Soap droppings

Arggh! I hate dropping the soap in the shower. I don’t know if it’s because my digits aren’t fully awake or the fact that soap, by nature is slippery when wet, but every morning I drop it anywhere from 2 - 3902 times. It’s getting annoying. I’ve been taking showers for at least 3 years and you’d think by now I could hang on to the stupid soap. This morning I must’ve dropped the soap 8 times in about 20 seconds while trying to wash my right arm. By the eighth time I yelled at the soap as it mockingly lay in my watery residue near the drain. I rinsed off, said ‘to heck with it!’ and got out of the shower. It’s true, my body is only 62% clean right now, but I’ve had enough and I say it’s better than nothing! The only thing I could think about as I dried off my glistening physique, is the fact that I’m sure my soap dropping skills would make me real popular in the prison showers. Glad I’m not in prison. Although I admit, I don’t know what showering in prison is like, I just assume that the rumors and movie depictions are true to life.

Does anyone else have trouble keeping their soap above bathtub drain level? Do they still make soap on a rope? I think I might buy the soap on a rope but I’d probably slip in the shower, the rope would snag on a bathroom hook and I’d inadvertently hang myself. That would be embarrassing. I suppose I could buy a bungie cord for the soap and attach it to the ceiling and that way if I ‘dropped’ it, it would spring back to eye level. Hmmm, blocks of soap springing to eye level doesn’t sound very safe. Any suggestions?

    There is such a thing as soap in a bottle that you pump into your hand - but then it would be heavier if you dropped the bottle - go figure.

    Yeah I drop the soap a lot. It hits the edge of the tub and accelerates to supersonic speeds as it heads for my toes.
