Do you know how good it feels to be clean? What about if you’ve felt really grubby for quite awhile? I think the only time I have felt dirtier than I felt earlier today was when I was in the army many moons ago, and we would go to “the field” for a couple of weeks at a time. But even then, they’d arrange for hot showers now and again. Not every day of course, because there is much work to be done when you are living that way, but certainly not a week. I was about desperate enough to try a bath in something like this picture, which I found in the Beaufort NC real estate listings. Luckily, it didn’t come to that, I’m no longer grieved at my internet friends who continued to shower mercilessly, and then inform me of it, either. All in all, life is pretty good with hot water.
But, here’s a funny thing. I got so used to heating water on the stove to do the dishes, that when it was time to do them tonight, and the new-to-us dishwasher didn’t fire up, I started to heat the water again. Umm, no. Just turn on the tap, Cass. Oh, the bliss!
