A bad dayHappy birthday, Kathrine! (link)
But, to tell you the truth, apart from her birthday – an exceptional event that, accordng to her, happens rarely in one's life – today has been a bad day.
I went to bed at 5am, because I wanted to study three articles (two of them were crap). While trying to get asleep, I thought in panic: What if tomorrow morning – and, actually, in a couple of hours – there's the drill (I mean the fake fire alarm)? And then: Impossible, tomorrow is (but it was already) Sunday…
The last famous words! At 10:30am all of Lakeside has had to wake up in a hurry and get out of the warmth of their beds.
Now, after the drill, what can anybody do? It's Sunday morning, you've been in the cold air of the morning – in your p-j, you have two hours before lunch… let's take a hot shower!
Probably all of Lakeside has had the same idea, because 5 minutes after I entered the shower – when I was completely covered with soap – the hot water simply… went off.
I waited for the hot water to come back for 20 minutes, while the bathroom was (slowly, very slowly) becoming colder and colder and while the soap on my body was getting dry and sticky. Finally, I couldn't stand it anymore – I was completely frozen – and I washed away the soap with a water the temperature of which was near the 0'C.
You cannot imagine how bad this day has been, but try to think that now, just now, sitting in the IT Centre, I can still feel the soap on my legs. What a bad, bad day!
