My teenaged daughter is a girly-girl. She likes makeup, fashion, and spa experiences. Her latest craze is something called the bath bomb. It's a multi-colored perfumed chunk of rock that you throw in a bath. I wasn't quite sure what it did, but I found out rather quickly.
Last night, she decided to bath-bomb my tub.
"Mom, check this out," she said after she had tossed in the bomb.
I watched as this thing fizzed and made the water turn pink.
I nodded. "That's nice," I said.
I did. The water turned purple. It had a very distinct smell, too. "Okay. You enjoy your bath."
Apparently she did. When I checked my tub after she was finished, I got the full affect of the bomb part. Gold glitter covered every part of the tub. It looked like a leprechaun's pot of gold blew up in there.
(I had to check and see if my daughter had turned into a leprechaun. She didn't, but she definitely had a certain sparkle about her!)
Here's a video in case you'd like to see the bath bomb phenomenon:
