Could God make a bar of soap so big he couldn't use it without dropping it?

One of the things I like is nice soap. I think it's in response to a childhood of very sensitive skin, which drastically limited my soap options. Now that I am older and less allergic, I can appreciate a fancy soap. I usually just get Dial glycerin soaps, because they are nice, not too strongly scented (I still have a fragrance sensitivity, and a tendency toward migraines. A winning combination!) and cheap. The cranberry soap is very nice in the winter - it's festive.

When visiting my parents recently, I discovered that my father has gotten really into going to T.J. Maxx and finding ENORMOUS fancy soaps.

I took several minutes to stare in horror, take photos of the soap next to other objects, and determine a strategy for using a soap so unwieldy.

It's very nice soap, especially if you want to feel very, very small.
