I am unwilling to get out of the shower.

In here I am warm and wet and clean and naked. The roar of the water and the overhead fan block out the telephones and traffic noises. My shampoo smells like kiwis. Yes, Iím pretty happy here in my 48-cubic-foot world.

If it were up to me, I might stay in here all day. However, the limitations of Earthís fresh water supplies mean that I will have to get out of here eventually. I may as well pull back the shower curtain and face the cold, shriveling world outside.
