Common Household Proverb: The Shower


Hearken to me, O woman, and learn that if, one day, you decide 
         to start a load of laundry consisting of all the dirty towels and then 
you decide to take a shower at that same time, then, O woman, 
do not cry out in surprise when 
          a) the shower’s springs of water have dried up like a wadi in the desert and 
          b) there is no towel nor any cloth to cast about you when you into the cold bathroom air step thereunto.   

Then does Wisdom cry out and laugh at your calamity.

"Like a wadi in the desert-" love it. This should be in those proverb of the day calendars.
