I'll bet you didn't know that January is National Bath Safety Month. Of course, it's important to be safe in the bathroom all year, don't you think? I can't imagine that it's OK to slip and crack your head open in February, or to drop the hair dryer in the bathtub in March.
A few months ago, when I slipped and tore my rotator cuff, I began to think my bathroom might be out to get me. I decided to show that darn room. I wrote "The Bathroom".
My character tries to be safe in her bathroom, although she doesn't even know about National Bath Safety Month. She's thrilled to be in the apartment in the building her family owns. After all, the place is much bigger than her former quarters and has both a bathroom and and a powder room. While unpacking and moving in, she imagines the long bath she'll take to ease her tired, sore muscles.
Things don't work out, though. Things didn't work out for my story either. It was accepted by "Dark Valentine" but never printed there.

"The Bathroom" is a digital story, now available at Smashwords, Kindle, and Nook.
