Nothing happened.

No leaf stirred.

Nothing cracked, crinkled or crumbled.

Everything, on the other hand, became fresh, moist and oh so alive.

There is soap, an advantage.

How many times did you delay this event today? Never procrastinate while guests could jump in first. Even with 5 bathrooms, it could happen!
