 Denise is in the bathtub. She’s taking a bath. She’s washing herself with soap and water after a long day at her job. She likes to soak in the tub because it helps her to relax.

  Denise’s friends all notice how big her bathtub is. Theirs are much smaller than hers, but Denise’s bathroom doesn’t have a shower. It only has a tub. She wants to have a shower installed because she uses so much water whenever she takes a bath.

 Sometimes, instead of taking a bath, she washes herself off with a washcloth. It’s faster and easier than a bath, but it isn’t as pleasant.
