Dry spell

Earlier this week, I got home with Fainjin and Babess to discover that there was no water to our apartment.  I called the managers, and they said the whole building was out, and they didn’t know how long it would take to fix the problem.

While rapidly thinking of dinner alternatives, I said out loud,  “That means no showers tonight, too…”

Babess and Fainjin were very concerned.  “No shower?  No shower Mummy?”

“No, there’s no shower.”

They tumble-bumbled up the stairs, for all the world like a pair of young puppies in their eagerness and curiosity.  “Quick, up da stairs!” “No shower?”

Once in the bathroom, they shouted in relief.  “Here it is Mummy!  Da shower’s still here!”  “Dere it is!  Da shower!  Da shower!”

Poor kids, I should have realised that they would take me literally.  They have seen the bathroom at home, which really does have no shower at the moment.

Luckily, the water wasn’t off for long, and they were able to have their showers after all.
