It is Saturday morning, and like most mornings I woke up hungry. Only this morning is different. Not only am I hungry (we usually go out for breakfast on Saturdays), but I have nothing to offer for today's prompt. Hubby asks if it's okay if he grabs a 15-minute shower - he's playing to the prompt you see. I say fine.
Now there is something you need to know, but would probably rather not because it borders on TMI, but here goes anyway. Hubby is not known for short showers, nor is he known for starting those showers upon entrance to the bathroom. If you've ever heard the expression "reading room", you have your answer, but there's more.
|Are you gonna brush me?|
Back to the present. I am sitting on the bed with my notebook and tablet (and my cat) struggling to come up with something read-worthy on the subject of 15 minutes. I set the stopwatch function on my phone and after 25 minutes I had not heard the water start. Because he can't hear me over the fans, I get up to move things along. I say, "You said you were going to take a 15-minute shower and it's been over 25 minutes and you haven't even started."
Hubby: "Well, now you've got your story"
Conclusion: He finally got his shower in the time it took me to write this, which proves he can shower in under 15 minutes, and this is what you get when I've got nothing to give.
