I’ve been known to soak for about an hour and a half in the tub before I start my bath proper. True story. First I run the hot water for a few minutes and then wait about another half hour or so for the water to heat up to peak hotness. I’m not sure when it was I started doing this, but I think it’s just something I’ve noticed since we moved into this house. I likes mah wawa HAWT!
I sit and read until my hands get all sweaty and then I put it down and just soak, and sweat, for about an hour or so after that. It relaxes the living crap out of me.
Juan’s applying the same system here. He likes to sweat it out.
