> I figure clean people with baby-soft hands must not do much with their lives...or they pay other people to do it :)
Craig, I know that was probably tongue-in-cheek, :) but...
I'm clean and I have soft hands-- but it's not because I don't work. During the day (except winter) I work in the family business which is installing and maintaining underground sprinkler systems. I'm working with tools, shovels, picks, pipe, fittings, etc in the ground which can be rock hard clay or freezing mud. I come home filthy every day, and it's incredibly physical work. I've seen grown men quit after one day because "it was too hard." Then, I have to rush home, clean up, and teach and/or perform professionally. (I'm a violinist.) I have to be clean for that, and my students wouldn't appreciate sand-paper hands which is why I wear good gloves when working. I need my hands healthy, clean, and soft!
So, I work and get dirty with the best of 'em, but I also have a need to stay clean every day as well.
