Next Year I'll Spring For The Shingles Cream
In honor of this, the day of my birth several dozen years ago, I am giving away a Super Special BeanPaste Birthday Prize Pack from everyone's favorite nutty Yankees And what, you may ask, does such a Super Special BeanPaste Birthday Prize Pack contain? Putz houses? Shingles cream? Discount geriatric "personal supplies"? Sadly, none of the above. It contains...
One lucky(ish) BeanPaste reader will receive one Vermont Country Store Apothecary Soap Sampler containing nine all-natural, Vermont-made, triple-milled soaps. (Soaps so damn popular they are sold old, people!)
(And I should probably take a moment to mention that The Vermont Country Store is in no way sponsoring or endorsing the S.S.B.B.P.P., nor do they sponsor or endorse any of the glowing editorial content on this blog. IT'S ALL ME, BABY.)
Ellie and I have personally smelled all these soaps (for quality assurance) and can tell you that this one is our favorite.
Though who doesn't love the smell of black glycerine?
And we'll be frank: this one totally smells like old lady.
So, in order to be in the running for the S.S.B.B.P.P., you must leave a comment answering the following question: Everyone is always talking about when they are old they will wear purple and red hats and fried green yayas etc. etc., but what I want to know is this: tell me what you'd like to smell of as an old lady (or old man, or old man that looks like a lady). Rose? Lavender? Laundry soap? Dogs? Pipe tobacco? Bourbon and cigarettes?
Winner will be selected at random, or possibly based on merit. This birthday girl is capricious like that.
