Enclosed Spaces

So I've really been enjoying the steam shower I had put in. I've used it nearly every night, except when I was sick last week.

Usually I start the steam unit at the same time I start the water to warm up for the shower and by the time I'm about 2/3 done with my shower the unit starts putting out steam. I'll finish my shower and then enjoy the steam (does wonders for those lawn mowing' muscles!).

Now, in order for a steam shower to work the entire shower stall must be fully enclosed and nearly air tight, otherwise the steam and heated air escapes.

With me so far?

So guess what happens when you have gas. E-gads!

I don't know what I ate to give me such mad, mad, curl-your-hair, peel-the-paint gas. But trapping it and cooking it to 100° is NOT a good idea.

In my haste to get out of there I barely even yelped when a spider dropped out of the towel I'd grabbed for my hair. Though it did give me some satisfaction to shut said spider in the shower with the stink.


Bet you weren't expecting that, were ya' Mr. Spider! Take that!
