Hey Taylor, are you going to Keisha’s party tonight?
Totally. I’m going home right now so I can take a bath and get ready for it.
A bath sounds so nice right now. I have to go to work first so no bath for me.
Oh, that’s too bad. I love taking a bath. I light candles, have lots of bubbles and play music, which of course I turn up when I blow dry my hair.
You don’t blow dry your hair in the bath tub, do you Taylor?
Yeah, of course I do. It’s so relaxing that way.
That’s really dangerous!! If you dropped your blow dryer while it was running you could die!!
What do you mean???
Taylor, a blow dryer uses electricity and water and electricity are a deadly combination. Drop your hairdryer in your tub while you’re in it, and you could electrocute yourself.
Really? I had no idea… I wonder what else I don’t know…
I don’t think we have enough time for that…
