There is a bar of soap in my shower that has been there for a long time.

It is a little disturbing to me how long it's taking to, well, disappear.

I use it. But, you know, usually a bar of soap shrinks over time. With all the lathering and whatnot.

It occurred to me that perhaps the soap is just good bang for the buck and it doesn't lather up in a fashion of working extra hard when in fact it's just doing a whole lot of show but not a whole lot of cleaning. Perhaps it does more cleaning and less of the showy lathering.

Or maybe it isn't really doing anything at all. Maybe it's just this block of glycerin that's laughing at me, the fool, each morning.

"Sucker," the bar of Dial thinks.
