Tomorrow we head to the mid-west for ten days of relaxation with Nature Boy’s family.
We eat, we swim, we laugh, we eat, we run, we sleep, we eat.
But we won’t be taking a shower.
You see, thirty years ago my father-in-law challenged his three sons to see who could go the longest without taking a shower in the family cottage… instead they needed to use the lake to bathe and clean up.
Thirty. Years. Ago.
Did I mention that they are a competitive bunch?
Needless to say, I’m going to spend my summer vacation in a place where it is, ahem, frowned upon to take a shower.
And while everything in my being dictates that scrubbing down in a crystal clear lake doesn’t quite qualify as “bathing,” this year, i think I’m going to try and tough it out…
I’ll be a rebel.
A rebel without a shower….
just for the JOY of it.
And what about you? What brought you JOY this week? Want to tell us about it?
