  • Living in a house with many people means...
    you are guaranteed many semi-warm showers.
    When you first get in, the water is almost hot.
    You think it will get warmer, but instead it gets colder.
    You think: "maybe I should get out, and come back later."
    But you bear it.
    Maybe just get a hot cup of tea after.
