The shower is not simply a place for singing into a shampoo bottle microphone. Under the running water, separated from our computers and cellphones, for a few minutes, we are free to contemplate the meaning of life, and have epiphanies both grand and mundane. These epiphanies have come to be known by the internet as “Shower Thoughts”
