You Do NOT Want to Do THIS Sort of Streaking

Hola Bitcholas,

Today we asked, "What's the streak you wanted to end?". This was inspired a few different surveys about people's hygiene; how often you brush your teeth, wash your sheets, change your underwear (???) and 'what would happen if you didn't shower for a year'.  

You don't have to be an intellectual juggernaut to know that not a single good thing happens to you if you don't shower for your year. It's just that it's even worse than you think when you hear the science.

With that in mind, it reminded me back to my days of being homeless. It's not a 'boo hoo' story or any of that, it was simply the culmination of a series of bad decisions. However, it doesn't change the fact that I once went 3 months without a shower. Just how it goes.

I didn't WANT it to go that way, but that's how it played out. It wouldn't have gone on so long but I had one of my more deflating moments as a human in an effort to take a shower.

There was a crack house/cheap motel that if you could save $20, you had a roof over your head for the night.  I was homeless during the winter, so some nights got cold enough that I'd spend the $$$ on the roof over my head than cheap booze to accept my reality.  That's how the game is played.  

Anyway, I stayed there one night to get outta the cold and I wanted to do was take a shower. The idea was SO appealing. Problem was, it was a communal shower...and THAT'S why I was so demoralized when I was greeted in the shower by a massive pile of human poop. Didn't take a shower that night.

That's my story.​ Still remember that shower-blocking pile of stuff.  

I'm outta here. Until next time, do what you do best and STAY BEAUTIFUL!
