Will: Mom, what’s up with the strange guy in the shower? I hate how he’s always staring at me.
Me: Try not to make eye contact. Maybe you’ll forget he’s there.
Will: I’ve tried. I’m thinking about wearing my bathing suit from now on. I don’t want him to see me naked. It’s disturbing.
Me: He freaked me out the first time I caught him staring at me. After a while, you get used to him. Don’t worry, he’s completely harmless.
Will: How long has he been in there?
Me: Dad found him in the shower a few months after we moved in. He thinks he adds value to our house. Sometimes he shows him off to friends.
Will: So, who is he, anyway?
Me: Have you ever heard of the Grateful Dead?
Will: The Walking Dead?
Me: No, not The Walking Dead…the Grateful Dead. Although, on some levels, there might be similarites.
Will: Can I show him to my friends?
Me: Sure. Maybe we’ll advertise to the public. We’ll put a sign in our yard…
Come see the world famous Jerry Garcia in our shower…only $5 a peek!
Maybe we’ll get Jerry Garcia to fund your college education.
Can you see him?
