Camping for Dummies
We went camping. I haven't really worked enough lately to warrant a vacation; however, camping is a different thing. Friends become enemies, lovers become ex-lovers and showering amounts to a tawdry encounter with a wash cloth and a rusty spigot. I believe that act is entitled a "whore's bath" and the great painter Toulouse-Lautrec captured it from every humiliating angle.
