He stepped off the scale and reached into the shower to turn on the water. The hard spray cascaded down into the tub and a cloud of steam rose behind the shower curtain.
He closely examined his face in the mirror. A few wiry white strands stuck out from his eyebrows like wayward electrical wires. Wrinkles creased his forehead as he raised one eyebrow.
