Chad: That's it. I've had it! I am officially declaring war on our shower. I have tried to remain positive, I have tried to stay optimistic, and I have tried to negotiate. There is nothing left but to proceed with open hostilities. Our shower thankfully has warm water. The problem is that it always fluctuates between freezing and scalding. Despite a month of tinkering and experimenting I have been unable to successfully negotiate a setting that will allow for a warm and comfortable setting. Last night was the final straw! I was showering, since I am a night time showerer, and had worked up a thick lather of shampoo. Meanwhile the devious shower shifted temperatures yet again. Because of the scalding temperatures I was unable to rinse the shampoo from my hair. I tried to circumvent the scalding water to increase the flow of cool water, but burned my arm in the process. After finally reaching the cool water I was forced to wait several minutes while the water began to slowly shift temperatures in its ocillation between scalding and freezing. While waiting for a reasonable temperature I got shampoo in my eyes. As I waited for the scalding water to cool my eyes burned and stung. There was nothing I could do. Upon completion of my shower I looked in the mirror to see my eyes red and irritated, but alas we had no visine. Thus I have officially declared war on the shower, and I am fairly confident that Emily will join the cause being that she is empathetic to my plite.
