my wife, a detergent freak!

Shahrayar (my dear husband) has a contribution to my blog, do read and see what he has to say 😀


My wife… a detergent freak!!

What can I say ?! yes, my wife is a detergent freak. The other day we went shopping and she forgot to buy her exotic shower gel. Once we were home, she found out that she had forgotten to buy one, the world gloomed in her eyes. To comfort her I said “dear, you can have a shower without a shower gel” and that’s how I found out who she truly is !!

Well, not really… I knew her pretty well by then, but she went on and on about how she can’t believe that I would suggest such a thing, and what about the germs? the sweat? the carrion?

So being a mars-ian trying to always make things better “or worse for that matter” I said “soap was probably invented as recent as two centuries ago, people had showers without soap before that and nothing happened to them!!”  well, a valid point but obviously not to her.

I, for one thing would jump once so often into the shower for a quick refreshment and not use anything but water. That – to her – was the sin of all sins. Not to dwell so much on soap, the conversation ended with me losing a point to my wife who would never, ever, ever think of having a shower without a shower gel.


What’s your take on this matter?

    Shahrazad, should I tell them about your childhood dark secret? :p
    Shahrayar, dont be fooled .. she used to do it before .. ok she thought it was gross this is why she was keeping it a secret .. but did it, guilty as charged!

    but hey, I agree 100% with her .; how can you have shower without getting disinfected. In fact, soap was invented long ago .. so no excuse!

      Good old *stinky* days, hehe! I can never do that now…

    Hala um3azzan… ok, as a child I used to do it quite often.. we were forced to have a shower and we would not miss our favorite cartoon or miss out on what the rest of the kids are doing while we shower :D, so I would guess most children do it 😉

    however, I don’t think you need a soap to be disinfected…. I am not infected in the first place 😛 …. 40 years ago soap in Oman would have been an extreme luxury , people would jump into a falaj and get out, no one died from infection 😛

    Men should be banned from Planet Earth. Shower without soap/gel for a girl?? Are you mad? Us delicate beautiful intelligent creatures? How can you even suggest it? I can’t even comprehend the idea, it’s just so awful.

    Shahrazad, I stand by you. You are not a detergent freak, my friend. You are a normal WOMAN.

    Ok… Nadia wants to start a war of men against women (something I thought um3azzan would do). I think we should both leave earth and live happily on our planets 🙂 . Being delicate beautiful intelligent creatures has nothing to do with soap. And you can’t comprehend the idea because you are a WOMAN … basically another DETERGINT FREAK 😛

    Shush shush! Men have no idea how to live. One more mention of the word ‘detergent freak’ and you’re going to find a beautiful nasty scratch on the front of your black ehem ehem..

    Soap rocks. Women rule.

    A scratch on what !! no one touches my SLK! ok that’s it, me, .. you, .. outside, lets fight, man to man… oh, I forgot, you can’t do that …. You are a WOMAN 😛 … ok … shu .. shu.. off you go

    Shahrazad, whoever said men had sweet attitudes towards us? He’s been tricking you for five years into thinking he’s nice. The truth has finally been revealed. And all because of Detergent! Highly entertaining

    Anywho Shahrayar, I’m siding with your lovely wife…she has every right to demand for her shower gel!! Us woman need our shower gels…full stop! :p

    Oh my Shahrayar, what can I say? EWWWWW big time (taking a shower without a shower gel/soap, that is)… showering without a soap is not just the sin of all sins, it’s a crime against humanity..

    • Shahrazad said,

      August 6, 2009 at 11:25 am

      You said it soulmate.. “a crime against humanity”!

      You’re not just harming yourself, you’re harming others who smell you, tell him.. tell him! Just like second hand smoking, nah?!

      • Soulmate said,

        August 7, 2009 at 7:04 pm

        Yup exactly! Smelling unwanted body odours from people (due to showering without detergent) is just as bad to the lung as inhaling smoke..

    Gchaan offcourse you would side with Shahrazad, can some one (MALE) just comment and give some justice to the topic !!

    Soulmate, that is very much expected from you… you are the one fuelling my wife with all the latest detergent products :P… you are her soul mate after all !!

    • Soulmate said,

      Shahrayar, you never fail to make me feel like the devil who corrupts your wife :p

    ٍShahrayar …. just give up. No one is going to side with you. This is Shahrazad’s blog, we are her fanclub, we are women, we LIKE soap. Face it. Go look at yourself in the mirror. Wake up and smell the flowers. Girls rock.

    Ladies are very good at twisting facts, I think this topic “ladies twisting facts” should – for its own virtue -qualify for a separate blog.

    Who said men are smelling bad !! who said that we don’t shower ?! and who said that we don’t use soap ?! I just said – and read my lips please – YOU WILL NOT DIE IF YOU DON”T USE SOAP FOR ONE DAY !! come on girls…. get a life 😛

    Nadia… if you like soap that much you should work in MacDonald’s… that way every time someone order’s a meal you could ask “Would you like soap with it” 😛 JK

    • Shahrazad said,

      August 6, 2009 at 11:29 am

      LOL.. and next time we come back from McDonald’s and you want to wash your burger-smelly hands, you’re not washing’em with soap honey!

    Shahrayar … bad joke. Very lame. 🙂


    You’ve been married for five friggin’ years and you still don’t understand women! We. Need. Soap. Every. Day.

    Back to work, Sir!

    • Shahrazad said,

      August 6, 2009 at 11:33 am

      Oh he’ll never undersand women dear! Five figgin’ years and he still calls my expensive mineral based MAC foundation “dirt”.. talk about that!

      Ah, all this and I still love him 😦

  16. Nadia said,

    August 6, 2009 at 3:46 pm

    He calls MAC what????!!!!!! DIRT???????

    Ok, that’s it …. him .. me … outside .. let’s cat-fight … right now.

    Oh, dear me, I can’t believe he just insulted MAC. I think you should shut down comments on this post because you may have world war three of females attacking him for that.

    Just read this now, and got to admit, I’m on your husband’s side! V is more like you, he can’t shower without his soap and will go out of his way to the store just to get it. I’m okay with just jumping in the shower for a quick rinse even if there’s no soap 😀

    Very cute letting the man write!

    LOOOOOOOL and this post has the most no. of comments!

  19. Shahrayar said,

    August 7, 2009 at 10:57 pm

    Liya, thanks to you, female world war three will not start because nadia can’t form an ally by saying “YOU ARE EITHER WITH US OR WITH THE TERRORISTS” now I have a female by my side and even worse your husband on their side 😀

    Oh, and the MACdirt thing… or whatever…. That will have to be in a separate topic because I can write forever about it

  20. Shahrayar said,

    August 7, 2009 at 11:10 pm


    looooooooooooooooooooool… glad I have that effect on you, at least it will reduce the number of detergents and MACdirt products getting into my wife’s head :p

  21. Nadia said,

    August 8, 2009 at 12:40 pm

    Shahrazad, please don’t allow him to post any topics on your blog anymore. I may have a heart-attack if I read any insults to MAC.

    Indeed: Men from Mars, Women from Venus 😀 Nevertheless, I am glad for reading this post about both of you and May Allah bless your life, Amen! 🙂

    August 17, 2009 at 11:04 pm

    thanks Hicham! So you’re definitely with the Mars-ian?!
