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