My daughter loves Readers Digest (I suspect this is because, secretly, she is a 70-year-old woman, as she’s also a fan of Wheel of Fortune), and recently quoted to me from an article on what you can learn about a person from their house.
“It says that people who take long, hot showers are probably lonely,” she said meaningfully. “They try to make up for missing the warmth of human contact with the warmth of a shower.”
“Well, what does it have to say about people who have to take lukewarm showers because the water heater sucks, huh?” I replied. “What does it say about them?”
She just looked at me sadly and shook her head.
