I read a magazine article once about how to turn mundane daily tasks into enjoyable experiences. One of the examples was ironing. To take your shoes off, open the window, turn on some music, and take advantage of time to yourself. I tried it once and I was hooked. It made something I dread something I could actually look forward to.
Well, I have always loved to take showers and I don't consider them tedious at all but I do love opportunities to add a little spice to them. So I was delighted when I checked into my hotel in San Francisco last week and found a pretty good sized window in the shower.
It was only four in the afternoon but I turned on the water as hot as I could stand, opened the window, and stood under the water for about 30 minutes. It was so fun to look out at the city and to feel the breeze blowing in.
I did get a little nervous that maybe someone in this building across the way could see in. I suppose if someone over there was so bored and sad that they were scanning our building for a glimpse of a far away showering hotel guest, maybe they sort of deserved to get it!
