Splish, Splash I Was Taking a Shower...

The girls and I have moved into a funky little house. It was like someone started with a square in the middle and then shot off bedrooms in 3 different directions. We like to say we have our own wings.

When my landlord showed me the place, I remember him making a point to say that there are no tubs. I said that wasn't a problem because we rarely took baths.

At least it wasn't a problem until I took my first shower.

Let's just say it is pretty snug in there.

When I bend my leg to bring up my foot to wash, my knee hits the door and the door flies open. If the soap drops out of my hand, I have to forget about retrieving it until after the shower. I cannot shave my legs. OK, I tried once, but I wound up laughing so hard at myself because it was fruitless! If I bend even a little, parts of me hit the walls.

This leads me to wonder who makes showers and why, unless you were living in an apartment in the middle of NYC or on an RV, would you make a shower this small? Make the toilet seat smaller or only put in one sink, but please just give me enough room to shave my legs, so I don't have to do it in the kiddie pool outside. I think the neighbors are beginning to talk...

Shaving. Meh.

At least a little extra hair will help keep you warm in the winter when then radiators don't work. (kidding)

I know I shouldn't giggle, but sorry - I can't help it.

btw my mom taught me a neat trick. Put conditioner on your leg in small places and dry shave those standing with a leg up on the sink. It works and your legs will stay soft and not ouochy burned. Good luck!

In the kiddie pool? You crack me up. ;)

So I guess in NYC you'll be livin' large, huh? Remind me and Michelle to shower ahead of you so we can be doing our hair and makeup while you leisurely shave your legs! :)

Hey it could be worse, your shower could be over the toilet like in that Sex & the City episode they are on the train! :)

I can't shave in the shower...I'd tell you my whole story but its probably funnier in person. We'll talk :)

Do you really shave your legs in the kiddie pool? Even if you don't you had me laughing. As for who builds house with showers so small you can't turn around? The same idiots who build houses that scream, "WELCOME TO MY GARAGE!" that's who.
