Re: morning psychosis

I slept very little last night, so during my shower this morning, there was a point at which all I could do was stare at the shampoo bottle and wonder what the hell I was supposed to do with it. That is exactly why I started to take showers before I went to bed. After a few 40 minute showers of me ...

I follow masher's understanding of the two lines. They're not really able to be used interchangeable, unless in both instances a fatality resulted. I suppose a crucial mistake could lead to a death.
