Dropping Some Diaper Bombs

, , , , , | Friendly | December 6, 2020

When my nephew was in diapers he was very prone to diaper rash. He also was sensitive to ingredients found in most brands of diaper creams. There was one brand — that had very few ingredients beyond zinc and petroleum jelly and had an amusing name — my sister could use on him that actually helped, instead of making the rash worse.

Unfortunately, their family had to move to Germany for a while because of my brother-in-law’s career and that cream wasn’t available there. So, they got regular care packages with that cream in them.

I was complaining to a friend that frequently, just one of the several tubes I sent her would be missing when she got the package. And I was pretty sure that someone in customs was stealing a tube every so often, probably because of the funny name.

My friend said, “No! That can’t happen. They must be taking it because it’s illegal in Europe. I think it’s used to make meth and explosives!”
