When Nakedness Is Next To…….
When I discovered my latest problem, I was naked. I raked nearsighted eyes everywhere while water dribbled down the drain.
“How did this happen?” My voice echoed in claustrophobic space. I grabbed a towel and charged from the bathroom, dripping everywhere.
I found the primary offender.
“Did YOU do this?” I shouted and waved evidence inches from a face.
“Don’t know nothing about it.”
“Why would you even USE this? I mean, look at it.”
“I done told you. I don’t know nothing.”
Aggravation almost made me drop my towel. “You can’t fool me, Old Man.” I held a broken bottle under Dad’s nose. “You BROKE my bottle of exfoliating glitter bath gel.”
Blue sparkled on Dad’s face when he cackled. “I’m handsomer, ain’t I?”
