2. Also called shower bath. A bath in which water is sprayed on the body, usually from an overhead perforated nozzle (showerhead).
3. the apparatus for this or the room or stall enclosing it.
Every water tower in my town is empty, as are the reserve wells. And by empty I mean there is no water with which to brush my teeth. Or flush the toilet. Yes, I suddenly realize that using those 2 examples so close together probably shouldn't ever happen again.
Apparently a main water line busted last night. As in broke, ain't workin', oops and dang.
I discovered this at 8 am when I called City Hall and asked for the Water Department only to be greeted with the giggly response "Every department is the water department today! The reason is because a line broke out on 84 and no ma'am I can't tell you when it might be repaired, because while the pumps are working to refill everything the guys on the line didn't tell me anything specific. I sure wish I could tell y'all something more."
Giggly! Friendly. Informative. Helpful even though she couldn't actually help.
I find myself tickled to live in a small town in the South right at the moment, because you know she's already received umpteen calls like mine and yet she was so pleasant on the phone you'd think we were cousins or that I'd called to tell her she'd won the lottery.
I kind of want her to be Mayor. Her campaign slogan could be a Smiley face with the caption "Smell Ya Later!"
Something noone in these parts is gettin' today.
