There’s Soap and there’s Soap

There's Soap and there's Soap

Sara says Grey’s Anatomy is a soap opera. Sara may be right. Sara is probably right. Sara’s right. Grey’s Anatomy is a soap opera. But I have to make one thing clear. There’s soap and there’s soap. There’s soap you buy in packs of six in the supermarket. Soap that sits inside the soap container and melts and becomes soap juice. Soap you leave to dry and then become soap jelly. Soap you peel off the soap container and throw into the trash. Cheap soap, it’s called. Simple soap. Vulgar soap. That’s one kind of soap. Then there’s another kind of soap. Soap you don’t buy in the supermarket. Soap you don’t buy in packs of six. Soap you don’t put in the soap container. Soap you carefully wipe with a paper towel after each use so that not a drop would melt. Soap you get up from your chair each time it enters the room. Soap you say Sir before you speak to. Soap that’s connected to ancient dynasties in Russia and in France. Soap that holds in its possession half of the lands of Eastern Europe. Soap that says the final word whether there’ll be a space program or there won’t be a space program. Soap that washes its hands before it eats a burger. Soap that washes its hands before it eats doughnuts. Soap that rules the roost. A not cheap soap, it’s called. That’s the soap I’m referring to.
