Are you always searching for the best lotion for feet?
It seems as though I’m forever on the hunt for the best lotion for feet. I’m not difficult or hard to please, I just want a lotion that will keep my feet baby soft, but isn’t too watery, too greasy or too perfume-y.
Hallelujah! I just had a total Goldilocks moment! I have finally found the one that is just right. And…. it only cost me $76,485.00.
The $76,485.00 Foot Lotion
Let me explain. Knowing I wouldn’t be able to drive for about 2 weeks following a recent surgery, I tried to stock up on our everyday essentials ahead of time. Unfortunately, lotion didn’t make it to the shopping list.
There is nothing like a hospital stay to make you appreciate and crave the familiar. Your own clothes, your own shower, and especially your own bed feels even more comfortable than you recall. Eager to get my regular routine back on track, disappointment set in when I realized I had forgotten to replenish the lotion I keep on the nightstand. Silently cursing the empty bottle by my bed, I suddenly remembered that “complimentary” bag the hospital sent home with me. Included in the bag were sample size toiletries. There it was. Wait for it. Johnson’s Baby Lotion. Yes, Johnson’s Baby Lotion. It’s not greasy, it’s not smelly, it’s just right! With a fast absorbing formula, it actually soaks in quickly and leaves my skin and feet feeling – well…. baby soft.
Why, why, why have I not thought of this before? With 5 grandchildren there’s certainly no shortage of baby lotion at my disposal! Face palm! It only took a moment of desperation, and unfortunately, an accompanying $76,485.00 hospital bill to realize the perfect foot lotion has been right under my nose.
Under different circumstances, (or for the rest of you) this lotion is actually very inexpensive, just over six bucks for 27 ounces.
The moral of the story:
Don’t dismiss the simple things. Sometimes we overlook the simple things right in front of us to chase after something unknown that we think might be better. Hopefully, in the future, I’ll remember it doesn’t always have to be fancy, shiny, or expensive to get the job done.
