If I don't shower today, tomorrow will be one WEEK since I had the chance. If you know me well, you already know that I'm not the kind that needs a shower every day, or even every other day, usually two or three a week works for me, but to go an entire week, I don't think I've done that since Linds and I were setting records in Ecuador for the longest in the group to go without a shower (I won with 17 days... eww, that's gross). So why don't I just take a shower? WE DON'T HAVE ANY HOT WATER, and I'm not about to take a FREEZING shower, NO WAY.
We haven't had hot water since Friday night, and I was planning to take a nice long bath Saturday morning until I realized we had a water problem. Now that I'm a mature adult it's literally driving me crazy that I haven't showered for nearly a week but the other people in our building are literally losing their minds. Imagine how bad it must be if I, a nice innocent girl from Utah, who doesn't even shower enough to keep up with social norms is freaking out. Every time I run into a friendly neighbor they start dropping F bombs about how pissed they are about the water situation. People are starting to leave notes in the elevator. Here's a friendly one I saw last night, "IT'S BEEN THREE F*&^ DAYS!" and now all of the tenants are supposed to call some housing attorney and the city so we can get our rent discounted. This has all been communicated through, you guessed, it more notes in the elevator. I guess there's nothing like making already angry New Yorkers even angrier. Nothing but good times around here, friends.
