Daily Post Day 53: Showers or no showers

Korean-style Chinese food. Not related to this blog post obviously.

How long do you think you could go without a shower?

I’ve been without showers for up to a week or two in the past year. Not voluntarily though; more like, medical necessity (or just paranoia of opening up physical wounds?).

If you ask me how long I could go without showering voluntarily…only 2-3 days. Even with dry shampoo to freshen up my locks and baby wipes to wipe myself down during that time, I would feel quite gross by the second or third day.

I know, I know. In the olden days people used to shower only twice a year. And in some countries, showering is still not done quite so often. Perhaps it’s all just part of the way we’re brought up: we learn the norms of our society and we learn to abide by them.
