Don’t even try to shower alone #Humor @MelissaSnark

I haven’t showered alone since 1998.

That’s not nearly as sexy as it sounds. Contrary to what you may be thinking, Mr. Snark isn’t a horny fiend with a hot water fetish. ::sniff:: Rather, my lack of privacy is the two part result of becoming a mother and being a crazy-cat-lady-in-training.

cat private eye 500A typical busy morning at the Snark residence results in two cats seated on the chest outside the shower’s window. They press their noses to the glass and observe my every move with unblinking fascination. At the master bathroom door, an usher turns cats away. “We’re sorry, but this showing of Owner Submerged in Hot Water is sold out.”

Courtesy of her muscle clout, Miss Bear has dibs on the glass door. “Mommy, I’m keeping you company.”

“Oh thank you, Miss Bear. I don’t know what I’d do without you.”

“You’re welcome.”

    How funny, but I’m laughing uncomfortably, because I remember those days–well, something similar, anyway. Happy mornings ๐Ÿ™‚


      Yeah, well, I’m still living the dream *G*

    Oh my, yes! I remember those days when the kids were small. The dog would always trail in behind me, and I could hear the kids arguing outside the bathroom door. Why or why do fights breakout the moment a mom steps into the shower for five minutes of peace? Haha! Thanks for the laughter today!


      There must be some sort of karmic imbalance associated with mom’s showering. Or maybe life isn’t fair!

      Thanks for dropping by! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Before I had a child I had a cat who used to come into the bathroom and crouch on the side of the tub between the shower curtain and the liner. I think he thought he was invisible.


      I’m pretty sure my cats think the glass is one-way also. ๐Ÿ˜‰

  5. I needed a laugh. Thanks!


      Glad you enjoyed the story! ๐Ÿ™‚
