Fui a correr

After a couple of days in San Sebastian I was over my cold and able to get out for a run. It ended up being a good one as well. Temperature of about 68 degrees and sunny, so I was able got about 5 miles right along the shore at a pretty good pace.

I was in a good mood after that, so when I got home and Juergen observed that I was quite sweaty, I decided to let it go. He would have none of it though. ¨¿Vas a ducharte?" he asked me. "Are you going to shower?" Well, yeah, of course. That was when he informed me that I was only permitted one hot shower a day. He then asked if I was aware of this. "I wouldn't be sitting here soaked in sweat if I was, now would I?"

So then he insisted we look at the list of house rules the school had given me. Of course, there was nothing there limiting the number of showers. Well, Juergen was not at all happy about this. He ended up allowing me to take a hot shower, my second of the day, because he was concerned about the smell I might generate, but he insisted I talk with the housing co-ordinator at the school the next day. The sitcom continues...

Next week, Dennis tries to read and listen to the radio at the same time, giving Juergen no choice but to turn off the buildings electricity.
