@ircon96@yakkoTDI Why the long face? Rain is great! My plants love it so much more than city water and I love it because it brings the summer heat down (and makes me not have to spend time watering with inferior water).
My only complaint about it is we don’t get it as much as we used to. Used to get a shower most every afternoon during the rainy season, now we only get it once a week if we’re lucky.
Amazing and cherished because until I was 18 years old we did not have a shower in the house I grew up in, only a claw foot tub. During my junior and senior years of high school, before school would start each day I would drive to the local tennis center that I was a member of and shower. To this day I still loathe taking a bath. Not only because that was my only choice growing up but also because I am too tall to comfortably fit into most bath tubs. YAY SHOWERS!!!
@katbyter I’m a guy who’s been to several bridal “showers”, invited as part of the wedding party (and to do menial labor…) but I have NEVER seen any of the brides-to-be or bridesmaids showering there (won’t opine here on whether any needed it).
And I’ve witnessed babies being changed at such places and despite their no doubt needing a little extra cleaning, never saw a baby getting showered, either.
Showering is how I get clean since most tubs are too short for me. About 10 minutes if I’m not shaving; when I shave (2-3 times a week) I set the showerhead to pulse massage and relax my shoulders and/or back, adds 5-10 minutes.
This presumes that I’m not in a hurry. When I am, I can do complete shower (w/o shaving) in about 3-4 minutes.
