Saturday morning 6:15
It was wonderfully wet. And, it was almost cold. The water felt tepid to my hand, so I knew this was not going to be fun. I shrieked twice and hoped the house full of people did not hear me. This, as you can imagine was a very quick shower and hair washing. Rubbing the water from my dripping body with the thickest towel I own and the last clean one felt so luxurious and restored a bit humanity to me. My friend who arranged this for me even brought me her hair dryer. I was moved. I had brought mine but almost forgot it. My hair was reasonably dry, so I was deliriously happy.
If you think my gushing is a little much, try using a cup full of water on your body every day.
My friend had had to take boards, paint cans and supplies and a ladder from the tub in order for me to take this shower. All they church members were friendly and accommodating.
I asked a guy who was there helping my friend if he would get 4 gallon jugs from my car and fill them for me. There were really 8 empty jugs here, but I did not want to impose on the church too much.
Mystic Mud has been though the same no water experience for long stretches. She may be the only person who knows how good a shower feels.
Have you ever been without water and means to take a shower at another place?
