Wash him out, dry him out  
I love showers.

Ok, I know that sounds vaguely weird, so let me clarify: I love taking showers. Long ones. This is probably not very unusual at all, and in fact it's kind of a cliche that I love taking long, warm showers. I don't think there are too many people who DON'T enjoy doing this.

But the main reason I love taking showers is because it acts as a sort of therapy for all my problems for the whole day. I just like the idea that I physically wash away all my problems in the shower, scrubbing a minor argument from behind my ear, or cleaning sadness out of my bellybutton. Or, as the song says, washing someone out of your hair. And I feel like all my bad thoughts are released when I turn on the faucet and then flow out with the dirt into the drain.

Of course, the problems never quite go away. But at least I'm levelheaded for a little while. And when things get bad again, I take another shower.
