Hey all...back from the sound gig...which was AWESOME! More on that later this week or next.
But I have to share something really embarrassing that happened. We're in the hotel room one morning. My kids are brushing their teeth with the water running. I tell them this at home but I guess they needed a reminder at the hotel to turn the water off while they're actually brushing. They asked me to remind them why and I said, "Because it conserves water. You can waste gallons of water if you leave it running while you brush. Just turn it on to wet your toothbrush, then again when you get ready to rinse."
So they ask, "What does conserve mean?"
I said, "That means to save water, meaning not use so much. It also saves money because using water costs money."
Sometime later, we're in the vehicle which has 7 passengers, including two of my husband's friends who do sound gigs with him, and my 15 yo niece.
One of my children asks out loud: "Mom, are you and daddy conserving water when you take showers together? Because I'm pretty sure you do."
With muffled snickers around me...except for my teenage niece WHO IS HOWLING with laughter....I manage to gulp a few times and say, "Um...yes, sort of. Yes." I mean what can you say in this situation? I was NOT going to have THAT conversation with a seven year old in front of our friends. LOL!
