We've been together, the three of us, for six months now. True, they keep their own residences, but we spend most of our time here, with my larger bed. Their stuff, however, keeps on migrating over here as they stay longer. Some of it, like issues of =The Lone Gunman= I try to migrate out as quickly as possible. The biggest accumulation seems to be in the bathroom.
Let's see here. Three toothbrushes. Two different kinds of toothpaste as Mulder insists on Colgate and I can't stand the stuff. No disagreement on the toilet paper, like those crazy people in the Ann Landers column years ago. Paper goes over the top as it should.
Three razors--two at the sink and one in the shower. Only one bathrobe, mine. I don't think Mulder even has a bathrobe. He seems to prefer going around in shorts or sweats, or even in just a towel. Not that we mind. Scully has robes. I've seen them over at her place, from pretty filmy ones, to practical terrycloth. When she's here though she prefers borrowing my shirts or tees. She probably knows how adorable she looks in them. I think it's a genetic trait.
Candles, I never heard of anyone stocking candles in a bathroom but Scully likes to light them when either she or all of us are in for a long soak. There is also a nice selection of bath gels as well, from citrusy stuff to floral, for crissake. I'm afraid one of these days I'm going to grab the wrong bottle in the morning and show up to work smelling like roses or something.
A lube and condom stash. What can I say? It's best to prepared. While baths and showers seem to relax Dana, they seem to make Mulder as mischievous as an otter. Sometimes, we don't feel up to getting to the bedroom.
Extra towels, nothing cute like marking them His, Hers, and His, but more than I used to keep out when I was by myself. Isee Mulder was the last to straighten out the bathroom. He always folds the towels in half rather than thirds as I prefer.
A medicine kit assembled by Dr. Scully for Mulder's use, of course. Advil and Mylanta. For me mostly. They still can give me headaches. Luckily though on only work related issues. Suntan lotion with spf30. Dana doesn't want to get any more freckles, she says. It's a shame. Mulder and I enjoy counting them.
Dana's good about not taking over the bathroom with makeup and other stuff. One small bag under the cabinet seems to do it for her. Mulder teases her about the styling mousse and the other "girly" stuff, but I've seen him sneak it on occasion.
It's odd. I usually abhor clutter, but somehow this doesn't bug me. Maybe it reminds me of them while they are on a case. Maybe it reminds me that I'm no longer alone.
