Bev and I had the water discussion again this morning. It seems like we have it every week now. I keep telling her she doesn't need to do laundry every day, and she sure doesn't need to set the machine on “super load.” Or triple-rinse.
If there was a way to disable the super load setting, I'd do it.
Bev can't wrap her head around the idea of a water shortage. The city is under restrictions for the summer – no watering the yard on Tuesday, Thursday, Friday or Sunday.
Bev gets mad when I tell her she can't water the plants every day.
I think of Bev's mother, how extreme she was in her late years. I wonder if that's where Bev's heading.
I hear water running long enough that I go to the kitchen to investigate. The tap is wide open and Bev is across the room, digging through the fridge's vegetable bin.
I picture my mother-in-law washing her hands, lathering them over and over while the water runs and runs.
