Feedback: Um, no thanks I'm getting tired of hearing from you all? YES,
Authors notes: One, this hasn't been BETAed. It was a random thing I just did
BETA's busy finishing Crying in the Dark and another little thing. Two, I
love Bath and
Body Works and until today I to wondered about the concept of Cucumber Melon
fragrance. Four, these are Kitty's thoughts, *not* mine, and no she's not
schitzophrenic. Don't you have mental conversations with yourself? Five, this
on experience I had today working at my mom's preschool (just in case you're
wondering how the heck I came up with this one). Six, oh yeah, the whole
thing is from a series of books I'm into. Or, at least I was 'til she ended
the series on
It's amazing the things cucumbers can do for you.
No, I'm not talking a fun day at the spa with the girls, though that would
make a cute
'fic. And, no, there is no sexual innuendo about cucumbers. I simply like
at least peeling them.
I, Kitty Pryde that is, wasn't exactly thrilled when I got kitchen duty.
It was stupid to phase out of math class, and I deserved it, but I still
wasn't happy. I
was even more annoyed when Jean told me to peel the cucumbers. I was hoping
least cooking something.
But now I'm just sitting here, peeling cucumbers. It's odd, how some
can drive you nuts and other things, like peeling cucumbers, can be so
It's funny; I never noticed how good cucumbers smell. I made fun of Bath
Works' Cucumber Melon scent even.
Cucumbers don't smell green, maybe cream colored, or a light lavender.

Don't cut so deep. The goal is to eat them. Darn, I'm done with that one. Now
just have to cut it in slices.
Hmm...cucumber slices kinda look like really creepy mouths full of teeth.
When I was little we read this book at school that mentioned cucumber and
butter sandwiches. I ate them for a long time. I should again, I hope we have
cucumber. They tasted really good, for as strange as they sound. Mostly like

Too bad it's getting close to dinnertime now.
So...oh good, new cucumber. Chop of the ends and start at the skinner
Cucumbers really aren't as cylindrical as every one thinks of them as being.
Yeah, Kitty, right, you're now worried about generalizing the cucumber
Hey, I could be worrying about less pleasant things.
True. Ahh, peeling cucumbers is good for my mental health.
Hmm. Cucumber therapy. Wonder if anyone's ever thought of that?
They use 'em in spas and stuff. I think they reduce swelling over the
Ookay. I got a recipe for cucumber leg scrub in my YM a while back.
Yeah, but Jean might mind if you use dinner to refresh the look of your
Hee, hee. I didn't realize I was so funny. Yeah, Jean might mind.
Cucumbers really do smell good. Maybe I should invest in a Bath and Body
Jubilee would love that.
Yeah, but she wouldn't have to pay for them. Bath and Body Works is a

I almost said, thought, whatever, Bobby instead of Body.
Bath and Bobby Works? Hmm...
