What's Up?

Did they invent some new sort of shower when I wasn't looking?

I always buy cheap, semi-clear shower curtains. It's dark enough in there, without shutting out all available light, and cats sometimes like to attempt to climb them...not to mention the occasional armadillo that finds the only way out of the bathtub is through the curtain. So, noticing that the cats had, indeed, slashed the heck out of the one I've had for almost two years, I trotted off to Wally World to get another. Dealy Beloved, I didn't think to read the dimensions on the curtain...just grabbed the cheapest one they had (Martha Stewart would despair of me) and took it home.

Much to my surprise, it is six inches longer and eighteen inches narrower than standard. What's up with that?

Life has come to a pretty pass when one is required to read the fine print on a shower curtain package!


  1. I didn't know they made more than one size. I just bought a clear liner today at Big Lots, too.

  2. WOW I DIDN'T KNOW THAT EITHER! TOO FUNNY! I always buy the clear ones myself. BTW? Hello again, yes I am blogging again! we'll see how it goes.
    Talk to you soon!

  3. I THINK that size curtain is made for one of those pre-fab fiberglass shower-stalls that does not include bathtub. I discovered those at home center when I was looking for a new bathtub and needed new shower curtain too.
