So I wake up this morning, roll into the bathroom and there's a post-it stuck to the shower cubicle:
You have seven minutes. Or you die.
Now, this refers to a long running, shall we say discussion, ahem, between my husband and I that I take too long in the shower. As an ex-Field Technician for Thames Water and passionate environmentalist, he believes it's everyone's responsibility to conserve water, which is why he's in and out of the shower in approximately five minutes. However, I believe it's MY responsibility to shave my hairy legs and arm pits so no one dies at the sight of them (which is always possible). He says that's why I have the extra two minutes. I say he's a fascist. The row goes on.
However, taken out of context, that note is rather interesting in a screenwriting-sense: there could be a story in it.
So: you have seven minutes to do something - or you die.
What is it?
