Hello, Mrs. Jones. How are you tonight?
Good Shower, and you?
Fine. How was your day?
Long, very long.
So, rather hot?
Yes, Shower, very hot.
You know hot water will dry out your skin.
Very long day, Shower. Do you want to help or not?
Very hot coming right up.
(The faucet for a claw foot tub we want to replace costs more than a reasonable replacement tub. This is Chris's short-term solution. Doesn't it look like a long-legged robot? I can't take a shower without thinking through a conversation. Tomorrow maybe it will tell me that I look like I've lost weight.)
