Sunday morning I got up almost too late to shower.
Ben told me, “It’s okay, you can just be smelly.”
Now, if I had taken a shower the previous day, this would’ve been true. The fact is, girls (from a bodily standpoint) smell nicer longer than guys. I just asked Ben for confirmation. He said, “I’d put it more that guys smell worse quicker.” Close enough.
However, I had taken a shower Friday. Which meant that, if I did not shower on Sunday morning, I would be going to church with third day hair.
Second day hair is completely permissible, provided you haven’t done anything like moving sofas the previous day. But third day hair? Unthinkable.
I explained to Ben that this is part of the Girl Code. He wanted to know if it was written down somewhere and didn’t seem to think it was very fair that it wasn’t.
But hey, I didn’t invent the thing. That’s just the way it is. 🙂
