|I was getting ready to take a shower the other day (Yes, the MA Fat Woman likes to bathe) and I observed something that got me to thinking about something.
I get in the tub first and then I turn on the water and set it to the proper temperature. I get in a position where my backside is almost facing the faucet and reach down to pull up the thingy to turn on the shower. I do this as quickly as I can and then jump to the farthest point away from the showerhead and wait for the water to get hot.
There’s always an ice cold blast of water for about three seconds before it gets hot. I cringe and shrink as much as I can but it always makes me shiver.
I’m not sure why I do it this way.
My mom and I had a conversation about this and she turns on the shower before she gets in; she isn’t sure why she does it that way.
I’m sure there is a government agency somewhere that has or is planning to do a research study and waste millions of dollars on this subject.
So, save the government a little money and the next time you get ready to take a shower, stop and ask yourself this question: Do you turn the shower on before or after you get in the tub? And why do you do it that way.
Leave me a comment and tell me why!
