The Shower

This is a little fictional piece I wrote about the everyday "shower".

The word shower was created by an Australian man, Bobby Chavez in 1892. He put a tennis ball on the end of his garden hose and pierced some holes in the ball and turned his hose on. Out came an even spray of water that was ideal to clean yourself under. He showed his friend as a good looking broad was walking past. His friend thought let's impress this girl and said to Bobby "show 'her" pronounced in Aussie slang "show er". And that is how the name came about, now pronounced differently only when a English man in 1899 bought the idea of Bobby and put a posh twist on it. The rest is history.
