Let's get started!
When I was in Navy Bootcamp,  we always had to hurry to do everything.  It was hard for me because I was a slow person.  We especially had to be quick when we took showers.  Actually, taking quick showers is very important on the ship because there isn't much water.  The ship actually has equipment to make potable water from seawater.  Anyway, in bootcamp there was a large room with 8 shower heads. Sixteen people would enter at a time. One person would step under the shower, get wet then step out of the shower while someone else  stepped in.  While waiting, the first person would them soap up and then step back in the shower while the second person stepped out to soap up.  The whole process took about 3 minutes.  Taking a shower for a long time was called a "Hollywood Shower".  Why Hollywood? I don't know. Maybe someone like Tom Cruise takes long showers.  

How about you? How long do you take in the shower? 5 minutes? コメントを残してください。

Have a wonderful, wonderful, wonderful day!
