Shower

i've never, in 24 years of life, ever thought, "Man, i really wish i was in the shower right now." i've thought, "Gee, it'd be nice to be clean/notstinky."

i enjoy the feeling of after-shower, when your skin's a little too small to fit all your insides, when your eyes are a little stingy, and your hair smells nice. i enjoy being clean.

i LOATHE repetition. well, some repetition. i hate the "lather, rinse, repeat, lather, rinse repeat, lather, rinse, repeat" endless monotony of a shower. in the shower, i do unpleasant things, like shave my legs (occasionally, lol). the feeling when you step out, of going from almost too warm, to freezing cold is upsetting. i tend to rush things that i know are going to be unpleasant.. get them over with. i think that's why i shower quickly.

when i hate something, i don't linger on it. i'm not going to be in there for any longer than i have to.

I'm the opposite - I love the shower. Particularly after I work out in the morning. I enjoy the sheer sensuality - the warmth of the water, the smell of the shampoo, the acoustic perfection of the bathroom for singing along with the radio.

I enjoy the shower enough. What I REALLY want though, is a gigantic bathtub. You know the kind. It has the jets that fire the water into it from below and an interesting looking faucet. About the size of a hot tub. I would like a bathtub big enough to sleep in, if I chose to do so. ahhh....sounds glorious...

ok, both valid points. my shower is gross, though. actually, one more reason that people who come to shawano would want a hotel.

EXCELLENT water-pressure, which is lovely, but the hot water runs out too quickly. it's a race against time, especially if you're doing anything that needs to be done right (back to the shaving thing again).

it's in the basement, not really the best accoustics. the water and skin is great - the trying not to touch said skin to walls is not-so-much. and most of you know i'm not really squeemish, or should, by now.

mmmmmmm, now, a giant bathtub i could see.

Cam's mom's house has a bathtub like that. Gigantic, beautiful bathtub. It's not fair. I considered asking if I could use it, but I don't know her that well yet. She does have a pool though......
