More Hysterical History

The next time you wash your hands or face and complain the water isn’t just how you like it, think about how it used to be!

In the 15 hundreds: Most people got married in June, because they took their yearly bath in May, so they still smelled pretty good in June.

However, because some started to smell, the brides started to carry a bouquet of flowers to hide their body odor. Hence the custom:

Why brides carry a bouquet today!

Baths consisted of a big tub filled with hot water. The man of the house always had the privilege of the first bath with nice clean water.

Then other males, like brothers or sons  in age order. Next the wife, the sisters or daughters, and finally the babies.

By this time the water was very dirty and you could actually lose someone in it! Hence the expression

“Don’t throw out the baby with the bath water!”  

Alan’s thoughts for the day!

 Worrying is like a rocking chair.
It’s something to do but you won’t get very far!

I’ve been doing so serious thinking
A thought just came into my head
You’d better have some fun while you’re living
As you’ll have a hell of a job while you’re dead

Live for today! No one gets out of here alive!
