Day 7 and I’m starting to enjoy the cold shower.
No, I’m being serious.
My mate, Julian messaged me before I dove in to ask me how I was going with the cold showers.
Going Good, and if you followed my blog you’d know! HMPH!!
He’s following me now. lol.
4 minutes today. Easily. The music wasn’t loud enough for me to shake my booty. Mental note. Turn it up.
But, I had a question for my girlfriend, Emma, afterwards. She’s real. Honest. How the hell do people take 5-minute showers? Or longer? I’m washing my face with my face wash, which I usually do at the basin. I’m washing my sexy body. hahahahahaha. Oh boy, I crack me up….. sorry.
I’m washing my hair, with shampoo and conditioner. Rinsing off. I get out…..
4 minutes and 10 seconds
Are you serious???!!!
Her response was, how the hell do you shower so quickly? Apparently, 10 to 15 minutes is the norm for her.
It made me think, and take away the cold aspect, I’ve always showered quickly. This goes back to my days in the Australian Navy, specifically the 2 years at sea. You had to be quick and efficient. 90-second showers. That was how long you had. That was the rule because fresh water at sea is a finite resource. The ship can only produce X amount of freshwater per day. 140 odd people use a lot of freshwater.
Then I thought further back. Even on base, you are sharing shower facilities with others, and everyone goes to shower around the same time. Except for the crazy people that would get up at 5 am so they could shower in a more relaxed environment.
Then thinking further back. I came from a large family. 6 kids and 2 adults. 1 hot water system. So if you were longer than 5 minutes, Dad would be knocking on the door…
“Don’t use all the hot water! There are other people in this family you know!”
During today’s routine, I was also reminded by my brain of the old joke.
Shampoo? Sham means fake. Why would I want the fake stuff? I want the real poo.
