Working from home has certainly been detrimental to my pesonal hygiene. It’s really easy to wake up in the morning and skip showering or shaving or pants when going to work invloves walking into the living room and flopping onto the futon.

This morning I had an epiphany. I realized that showering, and the other morning grooming rituals that accompany it, are very important to living as a social being. If I don’t shower and my friend Chris calls up and says, “Hey, let’s go to Best Buy,” I am very unlikely to leave the house because I know I would offend others’ noses. Howerver, if I’m already showered, I can leave without a second thought.

Not to mention a nice, hot shower just feels soooooo good. So I’ll be showering every morning from now on.
