Repatriation Blues

When I was in Yantai, pining for the smell of my beloved Herbal Essences shampoo, they stopped making it. Perhaps it’s no coincidence that this happened while their best customer (me) wasn’t able to buy any.

Yesterday I went to the supermarket to find some…. other shampoo…. in my heart and in my shower. No luck. Herbal Essences may be the only product to which I was completely brand-loyal, and I had no idea there were so many other shampoos and conditioners out there. There was nothing for for a jilted Herbal Essences lover to but smell each one. Stick tried to help me, but after accidentally shooting white conditioner all over his sweatshirt, he decided that finding a new shampoo and conditioner set was my problem. Perhaps I was laughing too hard at his conditioner-splattered outfit, but he wasn’t very sympathetic to my plight.

But today he got a lesson in emapthy. Today we found out that Fatso’s, a local burger joint Stick adores, went out of business while he was in Rome.

    I’m a guy, but I love Herbal Essences too. It’s the only shampoo that doesn’t make me feel like my enemy is ramming pins into a Kevin voodoo doll’s scalp.

    I’ll use whatever’s on the shower ledge… which is kinda gross.

    I guess I’m like the guy in this clip:
