If you were having coffee with me I would ask you if you had bathtub with running hot water. I miss having a bubble bath. It’s so been so long since I filled a bathtub with water and just immersed my body in it and simply soaked.
We havent had running water in what feels like ages I do not remember the feeling of turning a faucet and water just gushes out as if by magic, little things one takes for granted. There is a sign that hangs by the toilet door;
“If its yellow let it mellow,
If its brown flush it down”
Words to live by, considering you have to carry a bucket of water from outside to go to the toilet.
If you are having coffee with me, hope I haven’t ruined your appetite, but that’s ok we are not really having coffee, see, I ran out of fresh water and the bucket in the kitchen is full of water that smells like medicine, I added those water purification tablets to it and now you can smell the chlorine in it, haven’t been brave enough to drink it, I guess it would ruin the coffee. That is why we are having juice, I hope you like lemonade, I squeezed it myself.
Speaking of Lemonade have you heard or watched Beyonce’s visual album, titled Lemonade? It made a lot of hullabaloo on the internet. #Lemonade I haven’t watched it, The website it streams from is not available in my country, I wonder if all those people who say they watched it really did or they were just reacting based on other people’s reactions. If life gives you lemons make lemonade.
If you were having coffee with me I would say if life gave lemons you really need to stop doing drugs because life does not go around giving people stuff. I love the way you laugh, at least I hope you are laughing and not choking on your lemonade. Funny story about the lemonade, I bought the lemons from a street vendor with a tshirt printed LIFE at the front, isn’t that ironic. I wanted to talk to them point out the ironies and laugh about it, but municipal police arrived and chased all the vendors, because, well, its illegal to sell stuff on the streets in the CBD. If life sells you lemons buy them and make lemonade.
but if life gives you potatoes:
If you were having coffee with me I would ask you, if someone bathes themselves from a bucket, placed in bathtub, is that taking a bath or having a shower? Questions that keep me up at night. I have lots of those, I really should start a blog tag about such. But bathing from a bucket has this satisfying conclusion with the final rinse when you empty the remainder of the water on water on your head and it drips all the way down, presto you are squeaky clean.
If you were having coffee with me I would ask if I can take a bubble bath at your house, I promise I am good at conserving water and I will even bring my own herbal foam bath with essential oils. If all you have to bath with is a bucket full of water, its not a good idea to add bubble to it because how will you rinse up, I have seen this I have done this you dont want this.
If you were having coffee with me I would show you this cute picture of my niece (she will kill me when she is all grown up), a baby in a bucket.
Thanks for the visit.
