I realize the morning shower is very underrated. My hot water hasn't been working and the "very reliable" plumber commissioned by my landlord is apparently on a mid-week bender. So here I sit at work, highly caffeinated but still bleary-eyed due to the lack of hot streaming shower water stirring my body to life (did I mention it was one of the coldest nights of the year here in chilly Los Angeles?). In a few minutes I'll stroll to the campus gym and take advantage of my employee membership, feeling only a little guilty for showering without working out. I'll come back to my office refreshed and my co-workers will wonder why I look so much better, fresher, cleaner, more ALIVE. Because you can't spell "alive" without "ali."
