Today, I can imagine how it feels to be helpless in a stupid situation.


Eyore Night Shirt
Well, It is Saturday and Im a lazy bum on weekends. One thing I hate to do on weekends is have a bath unless I have to step out of the house. I can roam around the house dirty in my long "Eeyore-Sad donkey" tshirt all day and not be guilty about it.

My society has this practise of cleaning the water tanks once a month, that is good.
It seems they had informed the society members of the water cut for 12 hours on Saturday, which my family knew. But, since no one was there at home when I woke up I had no idea of the water cut.

After a lot of pep talk to myself, I went to bathe myself.
The water through the faucet was kind of weak, I thought it must be an faucet issue.
Shampooed my hair, lathered myself with nice soap.

And And And........the dripping water vanished..

I was there all naked with shampoo sliding on my face, one eye open, cursing the water line.
I dont know how long was I sitting there staring at the wall and seeing every crevice of the bathroom, trying to wash away the shampoo with whatever little water was left.

And suddenly, the water motor turns on...

Trust me I have never been so happy at the sound of any motor, after like 2-3 minutes the faucet opened and I felt blessed.

2. Get up early even on weekends so that you get enough information of what id going on around you
3. Never take anything for granted, especially water
4. Love every faucet, every
non living thing in your house. Some day you are going to be grateful to them

  8. When we first moved to the farm we had no way to shower in the house. My husband used an enclosed outdoor shower with a tank on top and slatted floors, and the water was sun heated during the day. One evening he was showering and a neighbour came to see him. Out in the shower, said I, and that's where he went to chat. However, as he opened the door he saw the head of a rather annoyed rattlesnake peaking up through the slatted floor, and shrieked a warning! My husband, covered in lathered soap, did a quick dance out on to the grass, and the picture remains a photographic memory sixty years later!!

    1. OMG a snake, i would have fainted & that is quite a funny picture you have portrayed there :-)
