Who says peer pressure is bad?

I have a confession to make.  I hate cherry.  Anything cherry makes me scrunch up my face and make pukey noises.  That being said when Di from AuntieDis told me I needed to make a Cherry Cola soap, my tummy rolled, my face scrunched up (even though she couldn't see it), and I believe my response was "Oh hell no!"

Since I am a strong independent woman who does things her own way, it's of course no surprise that one week later, I was staring at a bottle of Cherry Cola fragrance oil, grumbling and cursing Etsy's best candle maker and her stupid Cherry Cola.

Having gotten my immaturity out in the form of groans, muttering, and fake retching, I got to work.  But remember, my dear readers...I am a strong, independent woman!  If I am going to give in to peer pressure, I'm going to do it on my own terms!  So as I made the dreaded cherry soap from my own sensory hell, I snickered and added some chocolate fragrance.  Ha!  Take that, Di!  Na na na boo boo.

Imagine my suprise when I decided to be brave and take a whiff.  Hmmm.  *sniff sniff*  Hmmmm?  Wow.  *another sniff*  That actually smells pretty good.  Damn you, Di. 

So, the moral of my story?  I don't really have one.  AuntieDis, the wench, was right.  Stupid Chocolate Cherry Cola soap is pretty damn good.
