I meant to post this a couple of weeks ago, but alas, I didn’t, so here goes.
What’s wrong with little kids that they don’t like showers but like baths? Baths are a terrible way to get clean . Oh wait, maybe that’s it, little kids don’t particularly like being clean. Unlike adults.
I mention this because for the about a month after my ankle surgery, they only way I could get clean was to take a bath with a leg hanging out of the tub. This was very suboptimal for a lot of reasons. There’s a reason that in ‘bathing cultures’, they get clean first, then get in the bath. Otherwise, you are just sitting in filth.
Well, now I can take showers, but sub-optimally, in that I can’t stand on both feet, and I have to change my bandage after, so it takes a long time. In short, I need to shower at night. I like to shower in the morning. I can’t wait until I do that again!
