Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - March 10, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta THE LE1N8RIDGE HERALD March 10, 1973 family life h> MAUREEN JAM1ESON A GOOD hat bath was the land of thing I took for granted before I married and went to live in Britain. With no one lo initiate me into tlie ryfsteries of the uni- que BrilLsii hot water sys- tem, I lived a life of luke- baths. I knew that in theory, the living room coal fire heated a tank of water hiding in tho wall behind it, but in otir house, theory and reality were poles apart. On my return to Canada, the first thing I did was head for the nearest available lull. I spent the whole afternoon in blissful ccstacy. sub- merged in steaming hot vvn- tcr. Baths not the quick, util- ity daily dunk, but the occa- sional long, leisurely soak have become a few of nvy fa- vorite things. So last when my hus- bruid took off for a maetiivj, 1 decided to indulge myself. I tucked the younger ones Lxxl, gathered up a and a cup of raisins, and beaded for Ihe bathroom. After barricading myself in, f sank down into the love- ly hot water and started on my new whodunit. A frantic (humping on the deer scon interrupted me. Son Four, apparently had to go and right away. _ I got nut of the tub to let him in. then locked the door behind him, Five minutes later, Son Three had one of his known nosebleeds. Callously, I told him where to find the paper hankies and tried to concen- trate on my nook. But I couldn't stand the sus- pense. Finally I had to get out and see he'd been bleeding on the new pale green carpet in his bedroom. Sure enough he had. 1 filled a bowl with cold water and salt, cleaned off the carpet, checked to see my son was alright, (uxi headed back lo I ha bath. Half an hour passed before Youngest uaugnter woke up crying. She had a sliver in her toe. Carefully hanging on lo my self-control with both hawis, I yelled through the locked door that nobody can get a sliver from lying in bed at 10 o'clock at night. Pattetic lillle sniffles and laceups finally drove me out to prove my point. Strangely enough, she did have a sliver. I went ahead and removed it, then slipped her a dish of ice cream as a .sop to my guilly conscience before returning to the tub. When tlie telephone rang, 1 decided to ignore it, unaware that Younger Daughter was still awake. Ever-helpful, she out to answer it and came back with the glad tid- iisgs that the call was for me. I emerged once more to tackle the phone. After the cell was finished, I very care- luliy took the receiver off the hcok and headed back to batli and hcak. The raisins were almost finished, the second murder had just been committed and I was on the verge of figur- ing out the killer when my Willyum came home. Breezing through the bath- room door, wliich I had ap- parently forgotlen to lock af- ter last episode, he bent t'own and planted a hearty buss on the top of my un- responsive head. "Glad lo see you've had a rice long he grinned. "Now how about hopping put and ironing my yellow shirt. I need it for the morning. Defeated, I reached over lo let.the water out. Seems to me that when you hit a losing streak, there's just no way on this earth you can fight it.
