What if every time we have a bath, it empties out into the street? #PowerDaydream



I overthink everything to make the world a happier place

What if every time we have a bath, it empties out into the street?

On the doorstep, Neil looks over his Long-Suffering Wife’s shoulder. A foamy torrent rolls down the side of the house, down the street, across the pavement and into the road.

LSW
(horrified)
The whole street knows every time we have a bath.

NEIL
Yeah. Funny isn’t it.

LSW
You’ve seen this already?

NEIL
Um...

LSW
How long.

NEIL
Months?

LSW
The whole street knows every time we have a bath!

NEIL
Oh they don't mind.

LSW
I mind!

NEIL
It's keeping the street clean?

LSW
When, when... can we have a bath without the whole street knowing about it?

NEIL
I fixed the blind.

LSW
But this is worse!

NEIL
I know, but you were worried about the people seeing you through the frosted glass - which you can’t - but I did that first.

LSW
This is so much worse!

NEIL
Yeah.
It is a bit obvious.
Do you think we wash too much or not enough?

LSW tries out old sticks that the kids have left around the front door.

LSW
Why didn’t you tell me about it.

NEIL
Honest - I thought the window was the biggest worry.

LSW
I’ll do it myself.

She pokes at the drain.

NEIL
I’ll go and have a bath.
(off LSW)
To test it!
Did you use all the hot water?

LSW gestures what he’s standing in.

NEIL
Oh, yeah.
