‘Twas the night before the weekend,
And something was in the air.
His face looked concerned when he told me,
Though he tried to hide his despair.
“The internet’s stopped working!
I don’t know what to do!”
To ease his mind by distraction I said,
“The hot water’s stopped working too!”
He reached for my hand and squeezed it,
Breathed deep and smiled at me.
“At least after your cold shower,” he said,
“You can still have a hot cup of tea.”
[Inspired by an internet-free 3 days which turned out to be very liberating and enjoyable. Internet’s back but not the hot water – that’s ok, cold showers are very refreshing 😉 ]
