Ordinarily loose hair, or even clumps of hair don't bother me too much, but there is one aspect of shedding that I still get grossed out by... wet clumps of hair in the drain (gives me the shiver writing about it). But it is something you have to get used to living with a woman. Our apartment in Fort Collins had a healthy supply of drain-o for us to use... and we had to use it fairly regularly.
Lets jump to early this week. Mariko and I noticed that the drain in our shower wasn't draining properly and our rug was getting soaked (the shower is sunken into the ground a bit). Naturally after the shower I pulled out what appeared to be a drowned mangy kitten from our drain.... it was super gross and I swear that I saw it look at me. We knew it was time for some drain-o.
Of course those of you who know Mariko and I know that we can be forgetful sometimes... so of course we have still not picked up any. Jump to yesterday. After Mariko's showers she informs me that the drain is getting worse and she had to mop up some water in the bathroom. Ok, we both knew that we really needed to remember the next time we were at the store. Now for the fun part! After getting out of the shower today I notice that the bathroom was flooded!! Not simple splish splash, but our rug was floating around the room on TOP of the water. So I started mopping.

So lesson for all you guys: Take shedding seriously. Its a common affliction that affects 75% of all women, most who are too ashamed to admit it. Give them your understanding, give them support... but most of all give them drain-o.
