Cold showers, no thanks

Is there anything worse than a cold shower in the winter? I can’t think of a single thing! I’ve decided that even though I never considered it, I wouldn’t make it in the military. It’s not that I’m not tough, or couldn’t endure loving overseas or being part of a war. It’s the idea that I would have to be tough enough to take cold showers.

And I’m not.

It’s like I turned 40 and all of the sudden I accepted this weakness of mine. I prefer hot showers and warm sunny days, so what? For the last 3 years (I’m 43 now), I have come to grips that we don’t all have to be cool with everything. And I’m not cool with cold showers.

I guess if you were ever pressing me for information, like a hostage scene in a movie, you wouldn’t have to waterboard me. You don’t need to cut off my fingers or threaten my family. That’s too much work for you. Just throw me in a cold shower in December and I’ll tell you whatever you want to know.

Thanks for dropping in…
