When I was a teenager I liked the song "Water Water everywhere, not a drop to drink". It must have been a song from the 60th. Unfortunately I couldn't find the right one on YouTube, there were many songs with water everywhere, but not the one I wanted.
It's just because wherever I look I am surrounded by water. I look out of my window and I see water on the street, I go shopping there are plenty of puddles on the parking. I look like a kangaroo when I try to reach the entrance to the shops.
This morning I opened the stores and what did I see, a van from the water service standing in front of my neighbor's house. She suddenly had noticed a quiet deep hole, which was suddenly there over night and her basement is full of water too. Fortunately she is the only one in the street who has water in her basement, I mean of course for her it's not really a fortune, as there was no gold bars found in this hole either. They put a string around so that nobody would fall into the hole and only God knows when it will be closed.
The South of Belgium had floods and even only 20 km from Waterloo, the little town Tubize had floods again. I say again, because they had a very big one just one month ago, where people had lost everything and just started to buy new stuff, which is gone now again with the second flood.
On TV I see the floods from here, from Germany and from Queensland in Australia. Of course that's a far bigger scale than our little Belgium, but people suffer the same way.
I can't see water anymore ! I decided not to take baths or showers until we suffer from drought and only drink beer and wine. I became allergic against water, just like my cats, they don't like water either ! That's why Arthur takes only a bath without water.
A "friend" of mine sincerely believes that the end of the world is coming and she is not even a Jehova witness. I told her that I probably will then be so old that I die anyway before.
Meanwhile I still have feet and no flippers and I can still walk over to Dominique without wearing a diver suit. For bathsuits it's far too cold and I still can drive my car and don't need a boat.
As long as I haven't seen a fish swimming besides me when I walk, I will keep my optimism.
