Shower Me Happy.
I write my best posts in the shower.
By the time I get out of the shower, get half dried and half dressed (because the kids are already demanding my attention)
the brilliant post that was in my head is already half gone.
If I'm lucky I can write down some notes. Even so a note that says 'diapers' could mean a post idea or a shopping list after I get distracted changing one.
In the shower - my posts are witty, clever, provocative.
They are the perfect length to draw you in but leave you with a witty punch line, wanting more.
They are creative, original and inspiring.
In the shower, I love being a blogger all the time.
I never have writer's block.
I find my children hilarious and adorable.
They are endlessly entertaining and I can't wait to share their stories with you.
Maybe it's the hot, steamy water massaging my tired muscles.
Maybe it's the lack of interruption (most of the time.)
Maybe it's just that everything is better in the shower - my singing, my skin.
Even a cry feels more productive in the shower.
Perhaps I should start cooking there...
It seems ironic, cruel even, that I don't get nearly enough showers.
Yesterday I went to yoga at 9am and got my shower at 9pm.
Can we say ewwww. Honestly, I was just pleased I got one at all.
Maybe it's for the best.
If I showered everyday my writing would be prolific and I would most likely be published and about to set out on a worldwide book tour. Hotel showers are never very good.
I know I'm not alone in my shower genius. I know that I have read about various multi million dollar or life saving ideas that originated in the shower.
Why hasn't anybody invented the waterproof notepad or laptop?
