Not yet Ren saying "Why, I haven't bathed in weeks..."

I hadn't showered in a day and a half.

This is not in fact a cry for help.

For one thing, the word "hadn't." I showered just now.

For the other thing, on Tuesday I woke up, showered, did stuff at home, then in the afternoon, went on a long walk. Worked up a bit of a sweat. Heading home, I decided to indulge in an evening shower. Good idea. I felt better. When I woke up Wednesday, I was starting to get ready to shower when I thought Wait: I'm at least reasonably fresh from last night still. Just put on deodorant and get dressed and I'll be fine. And, it turned out, I was, but I'm so used to having morning showers that I had to remind myself that I don't necessarily always need one.

There. Water I would have used Wednesday didn't get used, and I still was presentable. I can adjust.
