    ...you ask for dimensions of the wooden box advertised on fb marketplace because it looks like it would make a good soap mold ( it didn't - it was waaaaaay too big)

    ...Someone tells you of this really nice soap, and you think, "I can make that!"

    ... your 5 year old keeps bringing you rocks 'to make into soap' because he thinks you make soap out of rocks, not soaps that look like rocks.

    .....your 10 year old says "This is my favourite soap that you made!!" but it's not soap, it's the marble slab of the cheese cutter you've been using to cut your (apparently) subpar soap.

    No carton, box, container, wrapper, drum, of whatever material is what it is...

    It is now (potentially) a mould.

    The oils section of the supermarket is now a fascinating place (although at my local "Familia" they don't sell bear tallow yet)

    And you just know you should be working at your computer, earning a living like a good citizen, and the deadline's on Monday, and your eyes are all tired and crinkly, but there was that fascinating thread on on goat milk soap with turmeric scented with exotic Oriental oils and what's the harm in just taking a quick look...

    You look at patterns in fabric and think "How did they swirl that?"

    ...even though you now own real soap molds, you have a lingering attachment to your small box collection...

    You go into the grocery store to get milk or something, and come out with oils for soaping, and forgot the milk....

    You actually consider handing out soap to the kiddos on Halloween (to make room for more). I did, but not seriously. Well, not too seriously.
