Laura remembered the shower nozzle was still cracked when the it sprayed her in the face, again. At least the water was hot and coming out in a strong spay to clean off the dirt, loosen her over worked muscles and steam away the stress of the day, detox by water. Lathering her favourite,  decadent vanilla soap over her skin,  she even enjoyed the water in the tub covering her ankles, like a shower and foot bath all in one… wait, that wasn’t supposed to happen. So much for a shower to unwind. Now she had a clogged drain to add to her list of things to do. She should have known you couldn’t start your day planting your husband and not have the universe take out petty revenge, God must be a man after all.
