Meet the beast!


Meet the beast!, originally uploaded by Laquet.

My parents have had a new shower installed in the salle de bains.
It's affectionately known as the beast.
It has 6 jets - 3 that mist, 3 that pulse/sting/really bloody wake you up*!
It has a wand with a big shower head on it that you can take off the shower mounting.
And it has a shower head in the ceiling that is akin to standing under a waterfall!

Some of you out there in blogland will have had this kind of shower for years ...

I just know that one the morning of December 20th the waterfall was so strong it made my eyeballs ache!

* You certainly don't want to catch your nipples with it ... I know - TOO much info!

I LOVE good strong showers...with all the hair I've got, it can take ages to wash the shampoo and conditioner out...something like this will cut down my shower time by heaps!

(I've also been known to ask people how strong their water pressure is in their showers before I go stay with them...you know...just so I'm forewarned that my shower could take 20 mins as opposed to 10 if I'm washing my hair lol)

Ooh, this sounds good. I remember a shower I had at a campground in Big Sur that was so strong I thought it was going to take my skin off. I still think of that shower often as one of the best in my life. This one sounds similarly wonderful.

Sounds fab. No more taking ten minutes to rinse off hair conditioner.

Is it a bu**er to clean?
It'd be worth it.

In response to your final sentence.

That is all.

I'd like to try a shower like that...but your last sentence scared me off.

Who knew that protective gear (nipple guards included) would be de rigueur for showering?
