day 59: cold shower

Today, a rare day, I showered before Aby. He had plans to shower immediately afterward.

Thus I found myself in a quandary. I can stand under a steaming stream of pressurized water until my feet fall off. Our heating unit will never enable this to be a possibility; the water turns cold before I’m halfway through with my hair. Poor Aby I thought. All he’ll get is a cold, cold shower.

I’m very bad a quick showers. So I figured since I usually have half a cold shower anyway, I would take an all-they-way cold one. What a rush.

Try it.

the first cold shower
even the monkey seems to want
a little coat of straw
