Governor Brown’s 20% ….. [Drought/Water Conservation; California; Personal; Humor; VERY SHORT]
California’s governor, in the third winter of this state’s drought,
has asked citizens to 1/5 of “your water use cut out.”
I’d already cut down my use of water from …..”not much” to “less”.
I’d urged my wife to do the same, which upset her, ….. I do confess.
Oh, she’d done some cutting back, but recently she did backslide.
If I told her again to not water her plants, she surely would have cried!
NOW, in daylight, I sometimes quietly pee behind an outdoor bush,
and, after dark, through the railing of our deck, my little pee-thing I do push.
